Professional, friendly, stylish and knowledgeable, NixBeat effortlessly combines punk rock, garage punk, rock and roll and glam and was easily able to get the room dancing from start to finish at my Camden Town London punk night, Garageland. Highly recommended and beyond compare!! Thanks again and cheers, Nick!” – Spike E. Valtzer (Garageland)
