Someone asked me the other day “where have you been”? Hmmmm. Good question. What she meant was that suddenly, Heidi Nirk appeared like a flash of light out of nowhere. I had to laugh. It wasn’t, really, out of nowhere, I have been around before. There was no spontaneous manifestation it has just been a long time coming. What took me so long you might ask? Well, I was taking my time searching for a sound. My musician friends can relate to that statement I am sure. I was looking for something magical, so much so that I had my doubts about ever finding it truly. It took a lot of moving around, testing things out, new members would come, and they would leave. Then, one day… serendipitously the perfect combination appeared in the practice space… and something miraculous was born. The addition of illustrious legendary players such as Mark Taber (Tombstone Blues Band), Paul Tomasello (Roomful of Blues), and Rob Nelsen (he is EVERYWHERE… Loaded Dice, Robcats, etc.) alongside Jack Matthews (Stoval Brown, and countless others), and Rhode Island’s best kept secret, harmonica player, Richard “Lil’ Cousin” Calitri, the band is POWERFUL! Now add my unique sound to the band and we are a POWERHOUSE! All you got to do is come see us live… and you will feel the power too!
