Nick Balzano


Nick has been involved with the Long Island Music community for close to 10 years. He frequents the stage with A Band In Ship, SMG, JFK & the Assassins, Bryan Gallo and The Belle Curves. He has also provided his drumming in the studio for artists like Ronnie Gross Jr., Sarah Gross as well as others.


Just before shut down he added touring with Pete Mancini and Leland Sundries to his list of musical endeavors. Having put together events in the past (with companies and venues like Liquid Shadows Entertainment, 89 North & more), he has always strived to give artists the fair shake and audience they deserve.


His ultimate mission is to bring different types of people together through music and the arts.
