This is about a 1 minute read.

Nik Lite, a scaled-down version of party band Nik and the Nice Guys, will perform at Keuka College’s Concert in the Park on Saturday, July 13. 

Free and open to the public, the concert begins at 7 p.m. on the Norton Chapel lawn. In the event of inclement weather, the performance will be in the chapel. Guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets, and concessions will be available for purchase.

Nik and the Nice Guys was formed in 1971 by a group of college hockey players at St. Lawrence University, and included founding member Mike Keenan, who later became a National Hockey League coach, and present-day manager Gary Webb. The group disbanded upon graduation, but re-formed in the 1980s in Rochester, when Keenan accepted a coaching job with the Rochester Americans. The band performed at Keuka College’s Green & Gold Celebration Weekend in 2015 and 2016.

In addition to performing at Keuka College, Nik and the Nice Guys has performed at more than 80 Super Bowl parties, including Super Bowl XX, where the group played for the NFL and its corporate sponsors. They have also performed internationally, at events at boththe Winter and Summer Olympic Games, as well as Canada’s Grey Cup Festival. They have also been part of events for such companies as Sports Illustrated, ESPN, Lee Jeans, Reebok, Apple, the Chicago Blackhawks, the Toronto Blue Jays, and Time magazine.
