Nico & The Velvet Underwater
Nico loves to sing and play guitar; she formed a band with her underwater friends! Jesse Dolphin plays drums, Sassy Seahorse plays sax with her sister Valeri on trumpet, and then there’s Peter Turtle on keys. Inspired to name themselves after one of her favorite bands, this mermaid and the band play local underwater shows and practice once a week. Nico knows that to be truly great at her craft, she must work diligently and consistently, while never giving up and staying positive. If she stays true to herself and she works hard, she can accomplish her dreams of traveling the entire ocean, bringing her unique sound, light and energy to the world. In the process, others will notice her passion and dedication. Many that notice will help and support her as she grows and touches the lives of everyone around her.
