Debut Single “Waiting” Available This Friday 4/3!

Nick Ryan And The Mess is talented team with a rich sound and an undeniablely powerful stage presence.  Fronted by a singer with a booming, versatile voice and backed by an ensemble of masterful musicians, the band has everything it needs to be a Pop Rock sensation. Don’t take that the wrong way.  Nick Ryan And The Mess is not a “flavor of the month” group of demographic pleasers.  They are a group of artists who believe in their work and are very good at what they do.  That fact, along with a number of Rock star intangibles will earn them mass appeal.

Nick Ryan And The Mess is lead by Nick Ryan on lead vocals and guitar and features Jimmy Franklin on lead guitar/backing vocals, Julian Michalski on bass/backing vocals, Casey O’Connell on keyboard, Jordan Bowen on drums/backing vocals, and Michael Squillace on saxaphone.

Nick Ryan And The Mess’ debut single “Waiting” will be available via all streaming platforms this Friday 4/3!  The crowd-pleasing track is the culmination of a lot of hard work and it is without a doubt a hit. You can pre-save the track now at!

If you managed to catch Nick Ryan And The Mess at the Jersey Rock Showcase at Jamian’s back on 2/20 or their 3/7 performance at The Asbury Lanes, you no doubt witnessed a killer, charasmatic show.  Unfortunately, with the Corona Virus/Covid-19 pandemic taking its toll on the world, all live music has been cancelled for the forseeable future.  That, however will not stop Nick Ryan from performing.  You can catch him streaming live performances on the band’s facebook fan page every Saturday night at 8:00 pm.  It’s great entertainment in the era of social distancing.  Just search for “Nick Ryan And The Mess” on facebook or click THIS LINK.
