"Rounding out the evening was Nick Siegel. If you did not know anything about Nick, his choice of a button down shirt with tie for attire and only a keyboard as his instrument could’ve led one to assume he planned to lull us down with soothing piano music… But that’s not Nick’s style. After joyfully stating “These make me happy,” and passing out leis to guests, Nick tore into frantic piano numbers with the speed and dexterity of a young, chaotic Ben Folds. The audience’s jaws collectively dropped as he hammered away, rocking so hard during his last song that his glasses almost flew off. As the ashes of what once was Playlistplay House scattered around us, it was collectively decided this was a Sofar not soon to be forgotten."
-Kara Love, Sofar Sounds Kansas City
Nick Siegel is a transplant from Chicago bringing Piano Rock to Kansas City with influences such as Ben Folds, Badly Drawn Boy, and The Mars Volta. His energetic piano approach to story telling sets a stage for the theatrics of art rock blended with the darker pulse of pop music.
