Our New Band… Now Seeking New Bass Player

Our official search for a bass player is now ON! If you know a bass player in Los Angeles, please read our ad on Craig’s List. If you know somebody who’d be a great fit, send them the ad and let them reply to us that way.

Please note: this is not the Nikki O’Neill Band. In 2015, Nikki and Rich formed a new band with Steve Fahlsing, who shares the guitar duties with Nikki. We don’t have a band name just yet. The plan is to record more music and get out and perform once we have a bass player. Here’s what we sound like now – hope you like it!
