The NyMBVS 5

The NyMBVS 5 (pronounced nimbus) is what you get when you put together 5 conceptually unique Long Island musicians who find joy in creating and playing original music.

Original music. Lovingly crafted arrangements. Good people. Great times.
The sky is just the beginning.

Damien’s compositions are organic, catchy, thought-provoking, deep and constantly in a state of evolution.

This is what we do…

If you’re wondering how we handle a restaurant or bar crowd… Good music gets people excited regardless of genre. This clip is from Charlotte’s Speakeasy, one of our favorite places to play and you can see why!

The Carolina Reaper

The Carolina Reaper speaks for itself. Written for a friend, this piece blurs the lines between fact and fantasy.

“Just Happy To Be Here” was part of an encore SET we played over at Industry in Huntington. It’s not everyday a crowd wants a whole extra set, but we gave it to ’em and rocked the house!

Good. And You?

The title track of our album “Good. And You?” Recorded over at Coop Studios in late 2020, we offer this track here as tribute to the late Chris “Crispy Chicken” Laybourne. He was an incredible sound engineer, a peerless performer, and the best human being anybody could ever hope to meet. We were lucky to have him. He would have wanted you to feel the music – so here it is.

We were fortunate to be able to perform at the newly renovated East Meadow Library recently. One of the best parts of having a group comprised of many musical backgrounds is that we are capable of quickly shifting gears and connecting with any audience, offering both entertainment and education when the performance calls for it. Here is an example of both!
