Nic & Joe

The duo of vocalist Nicole Lvoff and guitarist Joe Woodard is a musically magnetic and versatile act for all occasions, as ambient music or a more spotlighted component of an event, “dinner set” situation, or party. With a large and ever-expanding songbook to draw from, the duo covers music from different eras and genres, from timeless pop songs to standards from the “Great American Songbook,” from bossa novas to the Beatles to country and contemporary songbooks.

 Between them, Nicole and Joe bring years of professional musical experience and sensitivity to the varying needs of a specific situation. Nicole has built up a strong following for her jazz shows at the SOhO nightclub in Santa Barbara, and Joe has played in numerous bands over the years, including Headless Household and flapping, Flapping. They are also part of another original music project, Lucinda Lane, but have been recently focusing more on building up a strong songbook of cover songs, catering to a diverse range of musical settings.

The duo can also expand with more musicians, if a full band is needed.
