Meet the Band!
Niki Leigh Dillon
Rod "The Snake" joined the Nailers in March 2005. He was born in southern Cali and moved to Houston after spending some time in Philadelphia. He picked up the guitar after getting a copy of Van Halen, and credits Doug Doppler for teaching him some “stuff” on guitar. Rod is a true rocker at heart - you'll witness it first-hand when you watch him perform onstage.
Mike has been playing live since he was 14 years old but fell in love with drumming at the young age of 11. He has been keeping the beat for the Nailers for 2 decades now and started with the group when the band was new on the scene. Mike's biggest addiction (outside of drumming, of course) is riding his motorcycle. He was heavy into motorcross riding and still lights up when he talks about it. Some of Mike's earliest musical influences include The Who, Led Zepplin, Rush and Aerosmith.
Steve has been playing bass for years, since being weened on Stevie Ray Vaughn, Zepplin and The Who among many others. He cites John Paul Jones, John Entwistle, Chris Squire, Flea, Mark King, Stanley Clark, Victor Wooten and many others as great musical influences. Steve also credits Joe Hubbard and Brad Russell as his greatest mentors. His playing style provides the rhythmic foundation and steady pulse that fills the room and keeps everyone dancing.
