1970-76 – Nick Mirbach

Nicholas was one of most talented and inspiring musicians I have ever met. Music was truly in his blood. At a very young age he set the path in my ongoing keen interest in music.

MY VERY FIRST PERFORMING BAND!

The initial group was me playing piano and organ, however, after a few years I switched to bass and we played a few local house parties in Bulawayo. Note the HiFi speakers in the background.

In 1972, at the age of 14 years old, Nick and I formed a small group with our best friend from Salisbury (Harare), Barry Graham who blew an amazing flute.

We recorded some of our songs on an Akai reel-to-reel tape recorder.

Sadly, Nicholas took his own life on February 7th 1981 at age 22.
