Alternative Modern Rock…The members of this young Tampa Bay Florida based band have all met at Tampa’s Patel Conservatory, located right here at the Straz Theatre. Several individuals there have helped shape these extremely talented young men. Dean Tidey, Paul Stoddart, Lee Ahlin and TJ Glowacki were involved from the Rock perspective! Matt Weihmuller from Jazz and Kavanaugh Gillespie with vocal coaching! Dee Lynch, Ami Sallee and Greg Ruffer are present and past supporters who have helped open many doors. The list goes on! Ty Rodriquez and the Gasparilla Music foundation have graciously given support to both Patel Conservatory and this band who were able to enhance their training due to the boards generosity!…Nfin8 thanks all of you and the many more who have supported Nfin8!

Nfin8’s roots are derived from a combination of classical/jazz/rock piano, alternative guitar with driving bass, and strong percussion. Most of the members play multiple instruments and perform professionally in several genres from stage, theatre pit, orchestra to jazz! Modern rock is where they all bring a unique and exciting new sound together. The 4 members were originally part of two different bands that have played before the Florida Orchestra in Raymond James Stadium, and several other local events in recent months!

Nfin8 is currently building there first library of originals which will head to studio recording later this summer! Two of those songs will debut at the Gasparilla Music Festival!

Nfin8 are Parker Wilkson (Keys, Guitar, Vocals), Matthew Sichterman (Guitar, Percussion, Harmonies), Davin Norman (Bass, Harmonies), Alex Smith (Drums, Percussion, Harmonies)
