Welcome and thank you for visiting our website! (Liever in het Nederlands? Klik Hier)
We’re THE TICKETS, a multi-instrumental and multi-tasking acoustic duo consisting of Dave Hardy on vocals, guitar and some rather unique foot percussion, and Nigel Hubée combining his vocals with bass, mandolin, dobro, ukulele, guitar and harmonicas. We love arranging and performing Sixties (and occasionally Fifties) classics on acoustic instruments and there are so many memorable tunes from this wonderful era of creativity that even our 100+ repertoire still has room for expansion.
In July we celebrated the 40th anniversary of our first joint live performance, with photographic evidence of both performances on our live performances page, where you can also find other posts on upcoming and past events. Our Facebook page will also keep you up to date.
We have a pretty busy live schedule at the moment, as we’ve re-emerged from the lockdowns and restrictions that dominated the music scene during 2020 and 2021. Fortunately we didn’t let the restrictions prevent us from playing, as we converted the attic of our practice location into a fully equipped recording studio in November 2020. Since then we’ve published 29 videos, which have been enjoyed by many from across the globe on our rapidly growing YouTube channel.
Below is our most recent YouTube video, followed by a selection of our most watched, liked and commented on recordings for each of the instruments we play. Let us know what you think, we’d love to hear from you! The complete annotated list of our videos is also conveniently presented on our recordings page, so you can enjoy our music without leaving our website. Happy listening!
