Gary, IN was ready to showcase one of his very own when Nic Byrd began to play. Having a mentor that showed him the basics in Blues and Rock-n-roll, the once shy kid found a way to talk, through a six string guitar. Short of his teens, Nic Byrd was sitting in with the local bands that came to town. When the Fabulous Kings came to town, Nic was their go-to guitarist, and after graduating from the Performing Arts school at age 16, he went on the road with them and has not stopped ever since. Backing up musicians in Rock, Blues, Motown, R&B, Soul and now Latin Fusion, there is only one state left in the U.S that he is eager to scratch off his list of places where he has performed. Hawaii. Nic Byrd states he is grateful to have a loving family, his mom, and wife that show their support as he continues to do what he loves.
