Regardless of the location or venue size they perform, Craig Thatcher and Nyke Van Wyk have their audience at the edge of their seats with every note. The dynamics and energy of their performance captivate listeners of all ages with a unique blend of styles ranging from blues to rock, fingerstyle to celtic and everything in between. These award winning musicians deliver their exciting sets with a vast selection of both original pieces as well as many songs you will certainly recognize, but performed in a way you'll only be able to experience with Craig and Nyke. Nyke has also been performing with the entire Craig Thatcher Band since 2009.
Bret and Nyke met in the studio in 2002 while working on an album release with Scott McKenna. Since then, the two have collaborated together on hundreds of recorded projects for artists across a wide range of genres as well as several releases for bands in which they were members. Nyke and Bret perform together currently as a duo and can be found in multiple lineups as members or guests. Over the years you could find the two together on stages as former members of The Badlees & Giants of Despair. Bret Alexander currently fronts Gentlemen East and his own Bret Alexander & Fiends where you can occasionally Nyke joining the stage as a guest.
The Duo recently released a LIVE album in 2017 available for online download.
