About Us

Our Story


The Nubs, originally formed in 1980,  have reunited and are again playing tribute to new wave, punk, and dance music from the late 70s to the late 80s. 

What we do


We capture the brief period of musical history when young punks and new wavers rebelled against the tired, pompous, bombastic and self indulgent rock of the time and created a defiant, stripped down, high energy dance movement that still resonates today.  

Bands we love


The Cars, The Ramones, Joe Jackson, Elvis Costello, The Clash, Pretenders, The B52's, The Go Go's, The Police, Joan Jett, Blondie and more!
