After forming late 2022 Manawatu/Wellington based band The Bravo Uniform Mikes have been playing regularly across the country.
The band is fronted by Nick Potts, on vocals and upside down guitar. Nick has extensive live performance experience playing with touring bands since 2011.
Joseph James brings an explosive sound to the band with his high-intensity drumming. He has been drumming in various bands in the live scene since 2018. Joseph has also joined other bands touring NZ, North America and Europe in various capacities.
The Bravo Uniform Mikes sound is infectious rock n roll. They are influenced by bands like The Datsuns, The D4 and The Black Keys, bringing plenty of energy to their live show.
