He has also opened for the Josh Davis Trio and Ladysmith Black Mambazo.

Nik is a fourth grader at Leelanau Montessori in Suttons Bay.
He will be joined by Joe Wilson and Kevin Gills, collectively known as The True Falsettos. The True Falsettos began performing in the summer of 2010, but Joe & Kevin have a 6-year history of playing western swing & country music together with the bands "Rusty Blaides" & "Sister Wilene".
The True Falsettos' mission is to dig deeper into the music of the 30's & 40's, including hot jazz, western swing, and the popular music of the swing era.
Showcasing dazzling musicianship, while always remaining fun and danceable, the True Falsettos are equally at home playing concerts, festivals, bars and restaurants.
