What the Heck is UP?

OMG IT'S POST PANDEMIC!!! And I get to officially tell you, ADAM GROSSO (The Trollies, Euforquestra, Grosso Family Band) has joined the Habits on keyboards! This man is a beast. He started teaching himself keys during the pandemic and is already burning up the board with some really tasty textures and tones. We couldn't be more thrilled to have (we call him) Dickens back in the band in this new capacity. We will be unveiling his talents and some new tunes on June 24th for our first live show post-pandemic at Frauenholtz-Miller Park - see the shows tab for more info! I am digging around for some new places for us to play as well. If there is some little cool spot that has live music on the weekend afternoons, coffee shops, wineries, any non-traditional venues that you'd like to see us play, please hit us up! You can email me directly (Nikki...) at naturalhabitsband@gmail.com

SO. GOOD. TO. BE. BACK. ON. STAGE. PLAYING. MUSIC. WITH. THIS. BAND. I. LOVE. THESE. GUYS. THAT. IS. ALL. <3


Check out Nikki's music video "This American Dream"! Although we have not been able to come together for live shows or even rehearsals due to covid-19, Nikki has been picking at some things while practicing social distancing. Here is a song that may offer a bit of a hug for what we are all going through in this unprecedented and difficult reality.
