“Less narcissistic than solo performers, more intimate than a mere “band,” musical duos embody a special chemistry. Sometimes that announces itself in genetically enhanced voices; at other times through a subtle yin-yang of two halves creating a whole.” ~Rolling Stone
Who are the Musical Nomads?
Husband and wife duo, Brad and Julienne McKee, have been charming diverse audiences around the world since 2006, with their delightful acoustic performances of classic hits from the best folk-rock vocal groups and singer-songwriters of the 50’s, 60‘s and 70’s. Their repertoire is made up of hit after hit from the likes of The Beatles, Everly Brothers, Lovin’ Spoonful, Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, CSN&Y, Eagles, Cat Stevens, America, Johnny Cash, and so many more.
Their nomadic lifestyle and professionalism has presented them with opportunities to provide musical entertainment for Cruise Ships, Five-star Hotels and Resorts, Art and Music Festivals, Wineries, Corporate Events, Restaurants and Lounges, Private Parties and Weddings all over the world.
From the west coast to the east coast of the United States, to Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, New Zealand, Mexico, and Ecuador, Musical Nomads have garnished praises from former clients, music industry professionals, expats, travelers, and locals of every community for their passionate performances, and excellent musicianship.
Why are the Musical Nomads Unique?
Musical Nomads are a highly experienced professional live music act who deliver a dynamic, and polished performance every time. Where most music duos consist of one vocalist and one instrumentalist (sometimes accompanied by electronic backing tracks), Musical Nomads offer a truly “live” show utilizing both male and female lead vocals, buttery smooth vocal harmonies, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, ukulele, and harmonica. Both musicians offer an abundance of musical talent giving their audience a true, passionate and colorful experience. The duo’s full bodied sound rivals that of a full band!
Musical Nomad’s diversity and vast repertoire allows them to tailor their sets and song choices creating a fantastic atmosphere to perfectly suit individual client’s events and venues. Their music is a great choice for an intimate environment (restaurants, lounges, house concerts) or a lively atmosphere where up-beat music sets the mood.
An extra bonus; Musical Nomads set-up is small, giving them the ability to fit into the smallest of venues, yet they create a sound that is powerful or intimate!
