Although Nickel himself has 5 solo releases under his belt, including the foundation of Nickel and Dime OPS, Tragedy & Comedy, the band is currently preparing to release their first official album as a group. Teaming up with producer/engineer, Ian Hendrickson-Smith, Nickel and the Dime OPS A-Team spent 2 days in a studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn this past February, recording their best performance tunes, plus several brand new ones. The 13 track LP is set to be released summer of 2013.
NYC’s experts in hip hop/jazz/funk fusion, Nickel and Dime OPS will be taking the party downtown to The Village Saturday, April 6th. Once again, the band is giving all you 9-5ers and downtown heads what you have been asking for, a show on a night that most don’t have to wake up for work! Sullivan Hall is a great venue, with a nice stage with no seating, so the band is looking forward to rocking a show where heads came to get down. The band is slated to go on around midnight after a few others. Tickets are $10, you can purchase tickets now! or RSVP at the Facebook event page.
Hope to see you all out there!
