& New Year’s Allstar Jam-Session on Dec. 31, 2015 at midnight

Nick began learning guitar at age nine from his stepfather Edward, and started gigging professionally by 15. With a jazz style that is both urban and contemporary, he has blazed a trail to the top of the ranks of today’s stars. Combining all of the various influences of his music career from jazz to R&B to blues to rock, he has created an unmistakable sound and vibe that is instantly recognizable. With lightening fast speed and a distinctively silky sound, Nick takes the guitar to unexpected places every time he performs. His rich baritone vocals delight audiences unaccustomed to hearing such a skilled instrumentalist singing as well. And his natural comedic showmanship….well, he is one of a kind, and you have experience a Nick Colionne show for yourself. To do so, there are many occasions – in addition to the Smooth Jazz Festival Augsburg, of course: His tour schedule includes more than 100 live performances per year. For good reason, he succeeded Chris Botti as ‘International Instrumental Artist of the Year’ at the 2007 Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards. In total Nick released six albums and hit the Top Ten Billboard Contemporary Jazz charts many times. His last album ‘Influences’ was released in April 2014.
