"The Australian absolutely entranced the crowd... ...It's acts like this that provide a reason to get involved in music in the first place!" Db Magazine

"Like liquid silver" The Advertiser

"Nick Parnell is a world-class performer who can tap into a divine connection to music that is omnipresent" Rip It Up

Presented by:

Nick Parnell is celebrated as one of the most exciting vibes players in the world today. Born in the Australian outback, he began teaching himself drums in his parents’ sheep shearing shed at the age of ten.

Such humble beginnings ignited a passion in Parnell that has led to accolades including first place in the International Melbourne Percussion Competition, a Centenary of Federation Medal awarded by the Australian Government and the Dame Roma Mitchell Churchill Fellowship. He holds a PhD from the University of Adelaide (Australia).

What’s a Vibraphone?
A musical percussion instrument with a double row of tuned metal bars each above a tubular resonator. Contains a pedal to control sustain. Most impressively (and physically) played with four mallets. Emits a smooth singing tone.
