Nick Nixon and Andy Talamantez formed The Andy-T-Nick Nixon Band, which was based in Nashville. Nick teamed up with guitarist Andy to return to music, which he had left for many years. He was a part of the Jefferson Street blues scene in the 1960’s although his background was in Opera and Classical Music. The Blues came easy to Nick, although he found it was best to forget about most of his classical training before hitting the clubs. Nick passed away in early 2018 at the age of 76.
