NOTES from the Hostess

This will be the last show before our hiatus. 

After 7 years of bringing amazing music onto our lives and the lives of our community, we are taking a break to finish building our software platform Underground Overdrive™ which will help DIY performers take their careers to the next level.
It's been more than fun, it's been an electric learning experience from the ground up. 

 We thank every artist who has cautiously booked a show here, every human who has taken a chance on our house concerts without knowing what to expect, and our friends and family for supporting us as we risk it all.

Dwight and Nicole at The Big Room October 28, 2017

Dwight & Nicole is a three piece original blues-soul-rock band fronted by Dwight Ritcher & Nicole Nelson. Ritcher and Nelson are both well known on the East Coast for their powerful voices and songwriting. Together, they have toured up and down the Northeast, growing a fiercely loyal fan base, and self releasing two award winning albums through crowd funding. The Boston Globe calls them “A tour de force that demands much wider success” and describes their sound as “poignant, hard-driving and heavenly.”

They both trade off singing leads; he also plays masterful electric guitar, and she plays melodic electric bass. All the while, layering in harmonies and shouts. The recent addition of powerhouse drummer Ezra Oklan to the band introduces the perfect underlying rhythm. The results are stunning.

Dwight & Nicole finished recording their anticipated new album Electric Lights this spring with multi-Grammy Award Nominated producer Joel Hamilton (Aaron Neville, The Meters, The Black Keys) at Studio G in Brooklyn, NY. Their first single, a shimmering soul-rock anthem called “Wait” drops in June, followed by the full album in the Fall.

“Take R&B, soul, blues and jazz, mix in razor-sharp rock guitar (Dwight), a soulful, joyful, foot-stomping, happy-to-be-alive stage energy (Nicole), heat to boiling, and watch your face melt. That's Dwight & Nicole.”Relix Magazine
“Dwight & Nicole are truly great.”Dr. John
“There are good voices and then there are great voices. Nicole Nelson is definitely the latter.”Christina Aguilera
“Magnificent!”Dr. Maya Angelou
“A voice for the ages.”Ted Drozdowski, Boston Phoenix
“This Brooklyn-based duo's songs cull inspiration from a broad musical palette: folk, blues, soul, jug band, Afrobeat, and pop. Guitarist and co-vocalist Dwight Ritcher is an unusual sight... He plays a Flying V, a guitar usually associated more with the likes of Megadeth and Metallica, not folk musicians. But Ritcher and gorgeous, dusky-voiced singer Nicole Nelson lay down sultry soulful music. Nelson also adds rhythm, beating out circular country-blues time signatures, either on tambourine or with a sharp tap of her foot. Ritcher occasionally takes over on lead vocals, and the pair's harmonies are sublime, making for an earthy, retro-soul sound.”Linda Laban, The Boston Globe
“...I've been asking people on the scene...who they think is making the best music and who seems poised to take that next step toward the big time. I've asked these questions across genres—from blues and soul people and into rock and pop—and the one name that comes up across the board is Dwight & Nicole.”Mike Mellor, The Killing Floor
“It was a happy day for music when Dwight Ritcher and Nicole Nelson got together. The artists became Dwight & Nicole, and have garnered fans including Maya Angelou with a sound that melds blues, soul, folk, rock, and jazz.”Milva DiDomizio, The Boston Globe
“Dwight & Nicole are...a ferociously talented duo, and they're madly in love. It's easy to see why, as 30 seconds spent listening to Nelson's charismatic crooning and Ritcher's effortless charm will have even the most skeptical critics drooling.”Hilary Hughes, Weekly Dig
“Nicole has a gift far and beyond what most people have.”Adam Levine, The Voice
“Nicole's voice is like a mother's love.”Cee Lo Green, The Voice
