Mr. Nick & the Dirty Tricks unites veteran musicians Nick David (a.k.a. Mr. Nick), "Lonely" Gus Carlson, Teddy B. (Bukowski) and Rick Rousseau for one of New England's most formidable live outfits in any genre. But their hearts belong to blues.

Real blues. They play elegant, stomping and swinging classics by the likes of Little Walter, Howlin' Wolf and Wynonie Harris and a mix of original rhumbas, jump blues, and boogies they're developing for a debut album and taking to a growing legion of fans throughout the US and abroad.

"This band is a killer outfit," says David, who led the popular and critically acclaimed Mr. Nick's Blues Mafia. And that's the truth. Everything comes together when they play: their deep mutual understanding and knowledge of blues, their originality and depth as players, and the band's ability to put on a great show that brings people to their feet. It's a blend that wins new converts wherever they perform.
