The Rock-itt : February 2010
If you spent Saturday the 16 January 2010 at the Fishos, you would most definitely agree it was a night to remember. Showcasing Sydney's finest musical talent, the show was organised by long time friend and fellow musician, Brian Clarke, as a way for everyone to catch up with Maybury before he left to go back to America. Nick jumped at the chance to catch up with all the friends he had made on his musical journey through his teens and early 20's. Maybury has been very busy overseas networking and building his musical career, but took some time off over Christmas to come back home and see his family. He managed to squeeze in the big rock n' roll show which gave him the opportunity to make sure no one back home forgets him, and also to re-introduce himself to Australia as Niki May, a stage name given to him by Gene Simmonds whilst he was on tour with Kiss. Based in LA, Maybury is currently Perry Farrell's (Janes Addiction) right hand guitarist on his solo project simply entitled 'Perry Farrell", as well as working on his own solo act, Niki May. The Fishos show was a big success with hundreds of people attending. The vibe of the night kept focus on the actual music and musicians playing, rather than having a few bands come up for the entire night. Although bands such as, Jimmy Swouse and the Angry Darts, Sideways and Voodoo Soup all good friends of Maybury's did play a few songs, and really rocked the crowd, the majority of the night was unplanned and unrehearsed, but came together with a little musical magic that Maybury always seems to bring with him whereever he goes. The night's set list included songs handpicked by Maybury, including Joe Cocker's 'With a little help from my friends' to start off the show, followed by a hand full of Hendrix and Zeppelin songs and even a song by old school punk band the Misfits, one of his younger brother's favourite bands. Younger brother, Andrew Maybury played drums for the first time onstage with his big brother, for Misfits 'Attitude' and really did an awesome job, even when Nick's older brother, James ambushed the stage and joined his brothers in
