Nik and the Nice Guys is a rock and roll party band formed in 1971 at St. Lawrence University. One of the founding members, Mike Keenan, went on to be a professional hockey coach. The group disbanded upon graduation but reformed in the 1980s in Rochester, NY while Keenan was coaching the Rochester Americans (AHL team). Keenan later went on to coach the Chicago Blackhawks and St. Louis Blues. Other members of the band have included NHL coach Jacques Martin and former New York Giants and Jets punter Dave Jennings.
The band has performed for different NFL and NHL events as well as festivals and private parties. Harborfest cannot wait to see them perform on the Budweiser Stage in Breitbeck Park on Thursday, July 26 at 7 p.m. Their performance is co-sponsored by Cayuga Community College, C’s Farm Market and Community Bank.
