NICO SCERRI – BASS
Nico first started playing in Punk bands in his early youth before forming the well known bluesy/punk/rockabilly band KNOCKSVILLE . They managed some pretty big gigs for a band so young , including Rockabilly Rave appearances & support slots for Imelda May . Nico’s reputation as a versatile bass player lead him to depping spots with not only JRS but Sweden’s finest The GO GETTERS . Comfortable on Double Bass or Bass guitar & also very capable on both guitar & harmonica , Nico will be a great asset to JRS !
