The Stevee Nix

The Local is excited to announce The Stevee Nix as a musical guest for the evening performing an unforgettable indulgence of GROOVE juice & POP on the ROCKs with a TWIST!

The Stevee Nix forms a potent blend of genres that is refreshing in this day and age of ordinary cover bands. Each member’s personal creativity and influences are wired into the songs they cover and they take no shame in conveying the emotions that accompany those songs on stage with infecting energy which infects their crowds with an instant party atmosphere. The Stevee Nix musical journey consists of today’s best tracks in modern/alternative rock by the likes of Finger Eleven, O.A.R., U2, Buckcherry, Stone Temple Pilots, Jet, Sublime, Blink 182, & lots more. The Stevee Nix also have constructed their own style of retro tunes from the likes of Flock of Seagulls, Duran Duran, The Cure, Billy Idol, Cheap Trick, INXS, Violent Femmes, & more. The Stevee Nix is comprised of a unique combination of long time friends that together total over 70 years of musical experience.

Listen to the Stevee Nix Here.  They will get you moving!
