Nicole Falzone provides the explosive drumbeat behind Incendio. A longtime collaborator with Liza and JP, Nicole provided drums and percussion to the first four Incendio CD’s. Nicole is also a gifted visual artist, and took a break from Incendio in 2004 to pursue her art as well as her solo musical career. Nicole is happily back in the Incendio drum chair these days. Continuing in the tradition of her father, noted saxophonist Sam Falzone (who played in the Buddy Rich Big Band as well as in the bands of Louis Bellson and Maynard Ferguson), Nicole herself has played with George Benson, Katey Sagal, Jeff “Skunk” Baxter, and Tommy Malone from the Subdudes, among many others. She has released a solo CD “Matters of the Heart”, and has done much unique artwork with the Etch-a-Sketch! There are also Youtube videos of her playing with Liza in their progressive acoustic group Red Van Go from the early 90’s.
