Raised on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, singer-songwriter John Nichols grew up emboldened by the strong country roots of the Chesapeake Bay. Music had a profound effect on Nichols childhood, and at age 15 John picked up a bass guitar and never looked back. After several years of playing the local music scene in Baltimore, he became known as a solid session player, often called upon to open for national acts (such as the Violent Femmes and Better than Ezra) touring through the area. Nichols dedicated his free time to teaching at a music school in Baltimore where he met his future bandmate Matthew Chase (guitar). Matthew, having opened for acts such as KISS, Aerosmith, Santana, and CSN, knew a good thing when he heard it. Soon they were joined by Brad Kimes (drums) and further sessions snowballed into weekly gigs around the city. It wasnâ€™t long before the trio recorded their first self-titled EP, blending their love of country & rock with elements of bluegrass, folk & outlaw country.

These days musicians might consider a monthly gig that lasts one year as quite a milestone. Now consider this. Guitarist Paul Wingo has played in the bar at Bertha's Restaurant virtually every Tuesday night for the past thirty years! Here's how it all started. After a long process to get his restaurant's zoning changed to allow live music, Tony Norris put in a piano and planned to have Billy Colucci play there every Tuesday. Norris spread the word. Colucci, however, had neglected to mention his imminent move to New York. Fortunately, Norris heard Paul Wingo play at a party in Fells Point and liked what he heard. Wingo was available on Tuesdays, and the deal was struck. No one remembers the exact date he started, but the year was 1982...
