Doc Nix Confirmed as Guest Conductor for 2016 Alexandria Jazz4Justice!

Dr. Michael Nickens – “Doc Nix” as he’s known to his many fans – will be the Guest Conductor at the 2016 Alexandria Jazz4Justice Benefit Concert!  Doc Nix is the Director of Athletic Bands at George Mason University, including the award-winning Green Machine Pep band,  which Bleacher Report called the “most entertaining band in college basketball” and which was named Best Pep Band in 2015 by NCAA.com.  Washingtonian Magazine recently revealed how this tenured professor by day, with degrees from Yale and Michigan, transforms into the “zany bandleader” and “outlandish character” beloved by so many college hoops fans and music lovers alike.

Join us on Tuesday, April 5th, as Doc Nix takes the stage with John Kocur and the Rayburn Street Jazz Band for a performance unlike anything else!
