NIL8

art6635


NIL8, very likely the longest-running, continuously together rock band in Springfield area history, continues to draw crowds, produce original music and entertain at a magnificent level after some 25 years on the local scene. With the brother team of Jeff Williams (guitar, vocals, songs) and Bruce Williams (bass) leading a long and illustrious parade of a who’s who of area drummers and lead guitarists through the years, (positions currently occupied by Wes on drums and Damon Soper on guitar), the quirky quartet has no equal in the really alternative rock music arena in the capital city. Just to give the unacquainted a brief snippet from the world of these punk-funk-pop-rock poets of positive deconstruction and seminal caterwauling, we will leave you with the official invite for Friday’s show from the NIL8 My Space page: “after you eat tofu turkey with gravy after you drag yourself out of old navy after you shop on the blackest friday PUT ON YOUR LIPSTICK AND COME OUT TO PLAY!!!! START YOOOUUUURRRR ENGINES CUZ ITS RNR TIME!”
