"His energy is infectious; one is compelled to dance along with the exotic rhythms- The Dwarf

Nicky Bomba has been a driving force in the Australian music industry for over 20 years. His catalogue of excellent productions keeps him in high demand both in the studio and on the live scene. Constantly in a state of creation Nicky is involved in many projects including writing and performing with his bands Bomba, the newer and ARIA nominated Bustamento and the multiple Award winning Melbourne Ska Orchestra. Apart from the award winning with his own bands, he has also written and performed as the drummer on 3 successful John Butler Trio albums.

The live performance still holds sacred for Nicky who is eternally committed to creating a sense of community and unity whenever he plays. It is not uncommon for Nicky to go off on some magical tangent in order to really connect with an audience. Flying by the seat of his pants is something he welcomes. “I’m always aware of the active energy of a crowd. Believing in the moment and kind of steering that spontaneous beast can result in something really special. Absolute positive vibrations.”

Nicky has been a flag bearer for reggae music in Australia for over a decade and is not to be missed in this rare and intimate setting!
