Welcome and thank you for visiting our website! (Liever in het Nederlands? Klik Hier)
We’re THE TICKETS, a multi-instrumental and multi-tasking 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.
Our joint musical journey started way back in 1982 with a live performance at a private house party, and 40 years later we were very fortunate to mark that occasion with a gig on the exact same date. See photos from both events below!
Whenever they occur we try to use gaps in our performance schedule to record and publish new videos on our YouTube channel, making it up to 41 videos for you to enjoy so far. We’ve already welcomed 150,000 visitors from across the globe on our channel and we’d love you to join the fun!
Below is a selection of our most watched, liked and commented on recordings for each of the instrument combinations we arrange and 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!
