Nick Maddocks - Keyboards
Nick has played keyboards as long as he can remember. He grew up in South Orange County and one of his earliest memories of a piano is from his mother playing boogie woogie which was a key influence in the style he began to call his own. He was very Interested in the music of Steely Dan, Beatles, and several of the Motown artists. As he really began to make the piano a more serious part of his life, he took lessons with the intent of honing in on his skills with emphasis on blues/jazz training and piano courses. Nick has been playing in many local bands over the years and when the opportunity to join a Lynyrd Skynyrd Tribute band arose, he jumped at the chance to channel the sounds of the legendary Billy Powell of Lynyrd Skynyrd. Nick has been a welcome addition to Lyvyn Skynyrd.
