Duo Option

If you like the look of NOMAD, but 4 musicians stretches the budget, we have just released a condensed duo version: NOMAD Lite. Led by a singer or singer/guitarist and supported by the drummer who has all the other instruments stored in his live drum machine, triggered on the fly. All the sound, sass, mobility and interaction of the full compliment - just smaller. Sax or an extra singer can be added.

We are forever gauging dance floors around the world and keeping an ear to the ground for the freshest party tunes. The sample set list provided here shows examples of places we like to go.
