Nihility is about the rush. Music is more than notes and sound. Music is an extension of the musicians who make it and the people who listen to it. Nihility is a creature, or in some light, a monster; not a band, but an essence. John E. Funk, Sharko, Alex D, and Jay Tea created this beast out of emotion. Instruments, microphones, and recording devices transformed these emotions into music. The music, the members, the essence, is Nihility.

The Fringe

The Fringe are one of the genuine living treasures of the Boston jazz scene. Originally formed back in 1971 by tenor-saxophonist George Garzone, bassist Richard Appleman, and drummer Bob Gullotti as an outlet for their free jazz improvisations, The Fringe have entertained and enlightened Boston area jazz audiences for over 30 years. Bassist Appleman left the band in 1985 to become Chairman of the Bass Department at Berklee College and was replaced by veteran bassist John Lockwood.
