Nicky Hustinx (1983) picked up his first drum sticks at the age of five. Ever since he has been playing tirelessly in all sorts of bands and projects. In December 2006 he graduated from the Rotterdam Conservatory, where he was taught by Hans Eijkenaar, Juan van Emmerloot and Joost van Schaik. From his time at the conservatory onwards, Nicky has played in the United States and toured all over Europe, mainly with Austin-based Patricia Vonne and New York-native Dana Fuchs.
