You know her as the sassy lead singer of The Flying Saucer favourites, Jam The Funk, but now she is coming to the Saucer to present her own show “A Bridesmaid’s Journey”.
Nikki Nicholls is a singer-songwriter who began her singing career at a very early age on a weekly Australian children’s TV show called “Brian and the Juniors”.
After leaving school she performed throughout Australia and overseas with various bands including Australian Crawl, Suzie Quatro, Sharon O’Neil, Richard Clapton and the John Farnham Band where she was one of the original members providing support to artists such as Stevie Wonder, The Police, The Pretenders and Talking Heads.
In 1990 and 1991 she was Kylie Minogue’s backing vocalist whilst on tour throughout the U.K., Japan, Europe and Asia. She has also performed and toured for many corporate companies such as GMH, Ford, Jet Set and Honda to name but a few. Nikki has been one of Australia’s top session singers since the early 1980’s recording hundreds of commercials and backing vocals on albums such as Whispering Jack, John Farnham, Daryl Braithwaite, Colleen Hewitt, Indecent Obsession, Craig McLachlan, Nikki Webster and many more.
Currently she is performing on stage in the highly acclaimed show “Girls Girls Girls” with Wendy Stapleton and Debra Byrne.
This special performance will introduce songs from her most recent record Bridesmaid, her rock album Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood (featuring music of Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Jimi Hendrix), a collection of songs from artists she has toured and sung with and ‘on the road’ stories of her journey thus far. You can expect a spectacular performance from this very talented songstress!
