  Performance Ensembles    

The perfect musical accompaniment to any occasion. 

Nic Chaffee maintains an active live performance schedule in the Los Angeles area and beyond. In addition to freelance appearances, he is an active member of several performance ensembles. With styles ranging from funk to samba, classical to jazz, or classic rock to contemporary pop, Nic can coordinate entertainment for practically any occasion. 

Delta Nove

Delta Nove’s sound borrows from cultures around the globe, including but not limited to: American funk and rock, Caribbean calypso and reggae, and Brazilian samba drumming. This unique blend of drums, guitars, horns, and electronic colors calls to mind the grooves of Parliament Funkadelic, the horns of Earth Wind and Fire, the diversity of Manu Chao, and the psychedelic improvisation of the Grateful Dead. Delta Nove creates a fresh experience each time; Set lists never repeat, and shows often include surprise guest appearances. This has contributed winning “Best Live Act” for two consecutive years at the Orange County Music Awards and being listed as a “Top Ten Band to See” by Jambase. Additionally, Delta Nove has been on countless national tours and festivals, performing with the likes of, Ozomatli, String Cheese Incident, Burning Spear, Poncho Sanchez, Dr. John, Michael Franti and Spearhead, The Funky Meters, and more.

The Woodshed Family Band

Fronted by vocalists Selwyn and Sharon Gibson, The Woodshed Family Band specializes in jazz, funk, R&B, and pop spanning the decades. Chaffee serves as musical director and arranger for this 9-piece ensemble, which features a three-piece horn section in addition to a standard rhythm section.
