The Brass Junkies: Michael Nickens aka Doc Nix

Andrew Hitz


Listen via


TBJ117: Mike Nickens, Director of "The Green Machine" pep band at George Mason University on being unapologetic about who he is and leading by example (while carrying a scepter). He has built a gig for himself which allows him to be fully him while enabling his students to do the same.

Don’t miss this one! Doc is one of my dearest friends and he has blazed a creative path across the music business that is a great model for us all.

Summed up, the dude is a badass!
