Nightshift is a dynamic '60s, '70s and '80s cover band made up of five of Connecticut's most well known and experienced musicians.

They only play the most popular songs, the most FUN songs

and the most danceable songs that audiences of

all ages LOVE to dance to and sing along with!

The result has been a really fun time for anyone who has ever attended their performances. 

If you're not having the BEST  time, then you're not listening to  Nightshift!

     All About Nightshift

Here's what Peter Whelan (a Nightshift fan) just said to us recently:


"It's so nice to hear a band that's not just another cookie-cutter band playing the same songs that all the other bands play! 

I LOVE every song you played tonight!"

Here's what Kerry Sullivan of the Waterford Parks and Recreation Department

said in an email to us to rebook us in 2018:


"You are one of the bands I would like to have come back as we received great reviews about Nightshift!"

​______________________________________________________________________________________

I was at Donahue's last Saturday night and I wanted to compliment you on your amazing set list! Every song was a song that most bands don't play but I for one loved every one of them (and obviously so did everyone else since the place went crazy and everyone stayed all night!)

Thank you for not playing all the songs that EVERY band always plays and providing us with a breath of fresh air. I can't wait to come and see you again so I can relive the good years with all the great songs that I've always loved but haven't gotten to hear until last Saturday night.

"HUGE THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO HUNG IN THERE WITH US ON THURSDAY AND FRIDAY WHILE OUR AIR CONDITIONING WAS DOWN .....PHEW .....WHAT A SAUNA IT WAS ..... IT IS VERY OBVIOUS TO ALL OF US THAT THE SOLE REASON PEOPLE DIDN'T "BEAT FEET" FOR A COOLER VENUE WAS THE FREE SPIRIT DEBUT OF THE "HOTTEST" (LITERALLY & FIGURATIVELY) NEW BAND IN THE AREA....

Here's what "Marty" said in an email we received from him:

Here is a message from "Lynn" who was at a recent show at Sonny's Place:


"My dad was a Vietnam Veteran so I was deeply moved at Sonny's Place by your heartfelt support of our Veterans!

I immediately thought of my dad and I actually teared up when you invited a Vietnam Veteran up on stage with you so he could finally get the respect and appreciation that he never received when he returned home back then. Well done guys! 

I am now a forever fan of Nightshift  because of that and I sincerely thank you for making our Veterans feel special every night!" 


Thank you so much for that nice message Lynn! We promise that we will ALWAYS honor our Veterans!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And Nightshift sincerely thanks all of them for their kind words! 

Here's what Frank Solomon said to us after we performed on the North Haven Green:

Here is an email from another amazing Vietnam Veteran we honored recently:


Hello Nightshift,
   
To all of you. I'm Lenny Caruso and I have been to several of your concerts with my wife. I'm a Vietnam Vet and and you all make my day when you play the Animals "We got to get out of this place". This past Sunday we enjoyed you at Sonny's Place. It was such a great honor when you asked me up to sing with you and how you make us feel so proud. 

Just wanted to thank you all for what you do for us Veterans

Thanks a lot
Lenny & Cathy


No Lenny.......It is US who thank YOU and our Veterans for all you did for our great country!

"We rocked Herrick Park with our fabulous guest band, Nightshift. Truly, I and many others appreciated the amazing music and funny presentations. My son (11 years old) specifically came to the festival just to hear you guys play (he had first heard you at the Summer Concert Series.)

We'll keep your group on our short list for other events and fundraisers that we hold throughout the year.

I'm so glad you were able to join us and make the party a time to remember.
Thanks again."
