THE TICKETS are a multi-instrumental and multi-tasking acoustic duo consisting of Dave on vocals, guitar and some rather unusual foot percussion, and Nigel combining his vocals with bass, mandolin, dobro, ukulele, guitar and harmonicas. (Liever in het Nederlands? – Klik Hier)
Our large and ever growing repertoire of much-loved pop classics is carefully arranged to suit our vocals and the instruments at our disposal and helps create our unique and varied sound. Up to date compact amplification allows us to maintain the acoustic nature of our performance, whilst providing our audiences with crystal clear sound without ever being too loud. Listen to the live recordings below to get an impression of what we have to offer, or find out what our audiences think in reviews.
When you’re done, go straight to our news/blog page for our agenda and blog on recent performances, or see if you still recognise us in our (life)long joint and individual musical history. Our music will make as much of a success of your dance party as it will of any other style of event. We’d love to hear from you!
Just completed this mix from one of our February recordings. We hope our friends and visitors from all over this precious planet are keeping safe and healthy.

There’s always a spot of Sixties folk in our sets, which usually involves the mandolin:
Our classic blues numbers are often performed using the dobro and the harmonica:
