The band Perception began with Dave Nickolson (lead vocals/guitars) and Chipper Darling (drums) in May of 2010. In 2011, Jim Carlisle (bass) joined the band. Their style of music is a mix of rock, grunge, and a touch of funky grooves and flowing lyrics. This eclectic mix of styles is what keeps people listening because of the differences from song to song. Their mix and their love for music is what brings people to their feet. So if you are looking for a band to rock a gig, and pack the house, just book them for your next event.
The band has played gigs at The Golden Fleece in Dover DE, Coyotes in Seaford DE, Mickey's Place in Henderson MD, The People's Love Funk Blues Festival in Galena MD, and June Jam in Houston DE.
