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!
Here's what Tim Cordova (a Desert Storm veteran and a current Police Officer) told us at one of our shows recently:

It made me feel appreciated and very special.....Something rare these days! Thank you!"
