NIKKI & THE BARN BOYS
This story begins in Barnstable, Massachusetts when two sets of brothers and longtime friends combined to form the Barn Boys, a Blues, Rock, Funk, and Reggae band led by multi-talented lead guitarist and singer Graham Hempstead. The Barn Boys created a unique and groovy rock and roll sound that was authentic and distinct to the area. Not long after the creation of The Barn Boys, Nikki Childs joined the band. Nikki met the boys through a mutual friend and came to jam with them one day. They were blown away by her voice and energy, and after that, Nikki attended every jam session, and formed Nikki & the Barn Boys.
The band’s origins started far before the members knew of each other’s love for music. Twin brothers Thomas and John Bresette (rhythm and bass guitar) first met Liam Hempstead (Drummer) in the 3rd Grade when Liam moved into Barnstable Village. Years passed, and Liam and the Bresette brothers quickly became close friends. At the time, John and Thomas didn’t know how to play any instruments, yet Liam had been playing the drums since he was seven, and Graham (Liam’s older brother) had played the guitar since he was 6. In 2017, Graham began teaching Thomas guitar lessons. Though it started slow, Thomas practiced as much as he could, and by the end of the year, he took off with it. John soon followed and became determined to learn his instrument. By 2019 John had learned the bass, Thomas had drastically improved on the guitar, Liam got back into drumming, and Graham began hopping in on the younger boys’ jam sessions. Nikki had been singing in solo gigs around the Cape and learning the piano. As the group practiced more and more and developed chemistry, forming a band together became a reality.
Why is there a difference in price for available seats at The Music Room?
All seating at The Music Room is acquired with a first come, first served basis approach. The Music Room provides all patrons with a live musical experience above and beyond your average concert hall, and supporting this vision are the 4 tiers of available seats at The Music Room. With a nod to classic record sales certification, the 4 tiers are: Diamond, Double Platinum, Platinum, and Gold. Seats range in price based on several factors including artist availability and distance to the stage.
Do you have the same number of seats for each tier?
No. The Diamond tier of seats only has 12 seats available. These seats are 4 top rounds located right at the foot of the stage. You cannot get any closer to the artist than these 12 seats. These are considered premium seats and are usually purchased by the most ardent fans.
The Double Platinum sections features 4 top square tables and one special 2 top rectangle, and there are 14 seats available. Still very close to the stage, these seats provide an exceptional view and personal experience. Table no. 7 is a 2 top rectangle that sits just to the right of the stage and back approximately 6 feet. It is an extremely popular table.
The Platinum section of seats has a mixture of 4 top squares, two 3 high top rounds, and 9 drink rail seats that are bar height. The total number of seats in the Platinum section is 37. These are all excellent seats and reside in the main room. Depending on a viewer’s personal taste, a table, a high top, or a drink rail might be the right choice, but they are all fabulous and unobstructed.
Gold seating is available in the bar area and can be considered first come, first serve general admission. Most of the seats are unobstructed but depending how patrons sit at the bar or high tops, there might be a slight obstruction. Standing room is permitted in the Gold section. The sound is excellent and most Gold level tickets are purchased by patrons that want to be near the bar specifically or by patrons wanting to be further away from the stage by design. Please refer to our pictures to determine if this area is what you are looking for. There are only several seats available and mostly Standing Room.
