It all began when the Musical Gods of Rock and Reggae mated in August 2007 to give birth to what is now known as Nifty 250. The minions of Nifty originally consisted of Justin Wilburn on vocals, Marley Magner on guitar, Lucus Welch on bass and Jordan Parks on drums. Members have come and gone over the years with the current line-up featuring Wilburn, Welch, and newcomers Trace Thorpe-Bucklew on drums, Toby Runyon and Ian Vardel on guitar and Sergio Slayer backing vocals with special appearances by original member Magner on sax. Their goal as musicians is to blend and bend the genres and mix their different styles and inspirations to make your body move like it has never moved before. Inspired by 311, Led Zeppelin, Earth Wind and Fire, Reel Big Fish and The White Stripes; their high energy live performances started blowing minds with open mic nights and have led them to headlining local venues in Columbia and surrounding areas. They have supported mainstream acts such as Dirty Heads, Rehab, Lojic, and Culture. What started as four guys getting together to have fun and change people's perception on the genres have become an epic display of rock, reggae, and rap unlike anything ever heard before. To compliment their original tracks such as “Hey Reggae”, “Time”, “Hard to Listen”, “Trippin”, “Maya Fantastic” and their newest track “Just Keep Going”; they have covered and put the Nifty spin on tracks by Cake, Snoop Dogg, Cee Lo Green and Rage Against the Machine. Nifty 250 are eager to rock heavier and party harder than ever in 2011. This is a band that must be seen live; their energy and unique sound will have you wanting more. So, for all those who are prepared to have their ears penetrated by some of the most satisfying sounds, Nifty 250 is here to fulfill that musical desire.
