What to Expect
Two professional musicians who show up on time, play for the agreed upon time, able to provide battery-operated amps for outdoor events without a power source, keep the volume to where it's wanted, all with a good sense of humor! We love what we do and it translates into a good time for the audience!
Will Play and Nina Mars have been delighting audiences in the NYC and Hudson Valley area for more than 15 years. Combining folk with world and jazz music, their style is unique yet accessible. They have performed in a wide range of venues from CBGBs to the Knitting Factory in NYC and the Bearsville Theater and The Colony Cafe in Woodstock, NY.
