Capt. Nick Nicholson

Capt. Nick

Surf 17 welcomes Capt. Nick as part of our on air DJ personalities. The Capt. specializes in Trop-Rock which is the music made famous by musician Jimmy Buffet. Nick is a walking encyclopedia of this style of music. For this reason, he was chosen to spin the cool beach sounds here on our station.

He is also a singer, songwriter and musician and performs this style of Tropical tunes on a daily basis. He and his wife Dana reside in the little seaside town of Flagler Beach, FL., which is the inspiration for many of his original songs. 

Raised in western North Carolina, He was born in Deland FL., and a U.S. Navy Veteran, and a former tugboat captain. His musical background is a mix of country, bluegrass, southern rock, and Jimmy Buffett influences, when mixed together forms a frozen concoction called Trop Rock.

His heartfelt original tunes are a mix of nautical songs and ballads, along with love songs, beach songs, intermixed with covers from his favorite songwriters.

You can catch Capt. Nick on Trop-Rock Fridays throughout the day here on Surf 1700 AM.
