In the 70’s a band named Horizon was burning up the music scene in the south Louisiana area. Early in 1978, some of the members wanted to make a change. Four of the members: Kim Leleaux, Dana Latiolais, George Thomas and Laurie Labry left Horizon to start a new group. They contacted Huey Kern and Terry Guidry and asked them to join the band. We started rehearsing at Dana’s house and you could feel we had something special.
Naming the band:
Dana had been down to Galveston, Texas a few times and noticed the clubs that put Nickel Beer on their road side signs were packed. That was in the 60’s when a Nickel was a Nickel! and you could get a draft for a Nickel! He figured it would be a good name for a band ! Well it worked….the name got them in and the band kept them coming back….
Like all bands, NIKLBEER has been through it’s share of changes! From band members to musical styles: Disco, Funk, Urban Cowboy, Etc.
