Michael Nickolas

Originally from Southington Connecticut, I moved to Boston in 1980 to attend the Berklee College of Music. After graduating Cum Laude in 1984, I was a founding member, guitarist, and leader of what would turn out to be one of Boston's most successful local acts, 'High Function'. With High Function, I played extensively at clubs and colleges throughout the New England area. Other performance experience's included a tour of Switzerland, appearances in New York City, recording an eight song album in Chicago, and performing in a marketing film produced by the Bose Corporation.

After leaving High Function, I went on to co-found and play guitar for the Boston Music Award winning R&B band 'Universal Language'. Another very popular local group, nominated for awards each year of their existence, Universal Language credits include performances in the Boston Garden, Fleet Center, and at The House of Blues in Cambridge. I was also the Co-Executive Producer of their CD entitled 'One People'; a release well received on the local music scene, including a positive review in the Boston Globe.
