Who Are The Boys Of D63 And What Are They Doing At Arizona Broadway Theatre?

The Boys of D63 started life 4 years ago as “December ’63” ~ A Tribute to the Original Jersey Boys.” Over the success of the past three years, the band and show has evolved into “The Boys Of D63 ~ Music That Defined A Generation.” Now, The Boys of D63 have their very own Christmas show full of the Christmas classics and interspersed with D63’s special brand of harmonies and unique humor.  Think Frankie Valli meets Earth, Wind and Fire, combined with a lot of Christmas bling, and you have The Boys of D63 Christmas Show! And it’s coming to The Mainstage at Arizona Broadway Theatre on Monday, December 2, 2019. Buy tickets HERE.

Nick Davies

Nick was born into a musical family in Liverpool, England. He moved to Arizona at the age of 6, and through the years, he has learned about all aspects of music. His first love was the drum set, which led to a 4-year position on his high school drumline. Since then, he has learned how to play many more instruments including the guitar, the harmonica, and the Keytar. His main instrument now is piano, which he has been playing for 15 years. Nick has been fortunate enough to play the roles of Jean Valjean in Les Miserables and Henry Jekyll and Edward Hyde in Jekyll and Hyde, for which he won a national award for best actor. He also writes, records, and produces his own music, and is releasing his first album, My Generation, later this year.

Select credits include performances with Linda Ronstadt, Andrea McCardle, Richard Kline and Shirley Jones.
