NICK MARC – Biography

Growing up the shadows of London NICK MARC developed a love of music at an early age.

In 1995 he founded the legendary TISWAS party at Coney Island High where it established itself as the premier indie/dance party in NYC, moving to the infamous Don Hill’s for a seven year run and before moving to Lower East Side club The Annex. NICK MARC’s innovative DJ sets mixing indie, rock ‘n’ roll, Britpop, sixties garage, soul, glam rock, electro, punk/post punk, new wave and more anchored the festivities influencing, informing and laying the groundwork for parties from Los Angeles to San Francisco, Miami to Boston and more.
