NEIN made two appearances on local radio podcast “Listen Local SD” hosted by Cathryn Beeks.  On May 11 “Take that Girl” was featured, and on June 8 “Situation” was featured.

NEIN’s television debut

NEIN made their television debut on the local music showcase program “VV and Yourself Presents”.  This television show has been on the air for over 30 years and practically anyone who has made their mark in the San Diego music scene has appeared on the program – and now we can add NEIN to the list.  The program showcased the dynamic talents of the band, and the director (Victoria Valentine, “VV”) and the crew all enjoyed the band’s presentation during the taping.

 

In 2018 the band plans to make regular appearances at Winston’s and other venues, as well as secure gigs at the San Diego County Fair and December Nights.  We’d like to thank all of our supporters and friends who bought the music, came to the gigs, wore the t-shirts, watched the videos, gave us pats on the back, and just plain supported us throughout the years – we truly appreciate you!  We look forward to a great 2018 and invite you to come along for the ride.
