I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

NIKnSTIX - Drum Contest

From Orange County California, Nikke Blout is a drummer based out of Frankfurt, Germany and Los Angeles, California. With a musician for a father and a music-loving mother, Nikke fell in love with drumming at age seven. She gave her first drum solo to a standing ovation at age nine and got her first drum set at eleven. She continued drumming in drum corps and jazz band through high school. In the first week of college, Nikke even moved an entire drum set into her dorm room. Later, while pursuing a business career, she regularly played the Los Angeles’ music scene with Women In Blues and The Deep Happy and opened up for notable acts including Chris Isaak. In Los Angeles, Nikke worked with drum master, Carl Tassi, who taught her approaches to play more fluidly and powerfully with greater dynamics and timing. In 2009, Nikke went to Berklee College of Music in Boston and continues to study remotely with Mark Walker, Professor of Percussion at Berklee. She also keeps a close connection with such masters as Claus Hessler in Germany, and Walfredo Reyes Jr. in Los Angeles. Currently, Nikke is playing in and managing bands, including blues/rock with Richard Saratoga and the new pop/rock project, She Rocco. Nikke gives lessons to those who share the same passion for the drums. Visit her on Facebook or
