Nikki D & the Sisters of Thunder is a family based group from Toledo. Their unique style is Gospel with Blues riffs and grooves, all punctuated by Nikki D’s wildly soulful and electrifying steel guitar. Guitar World magazine has described Nikki as “The Jimi Hendrix of Sacred Steel” because of her experimental vocal-like riffs and other-worldly sounds. She’s also a soulful vocalist that commands the attention with her raspy, sultry voice. Their excitement and energy is contagious. When they hit the stage, a forecast for hand clapping and toe tapping will be expected.
The group is known for their powerfully moving, revival-like performances with beautifully atmospheric vocals riding
about a wave of infectious rhythms and grooves. They’ve shared the stage with Jack White’s band, The Raconteurs, as well as The Rance Allen Group, The Slide Brothers and many others.
