Nick A. Pociask
Nick Pociask was born, raised and lived a large part of his life in McKeesport, Pennsylvania. Nick had an aunt and uncle in the business that played guitar and sang country music. From a very early age (4 or 5), Nick would listen to them sing and play. He was hooked. Eventually his desire ended in his neighbor teaching him to play the guitar. In high school, Nick joined a group called “The Prophets” and after that, “The Yesterday”. He sang and played rhythm guitar for these groups. Nick took a break from music, but resurfaced in the early 80′s in a group called “Class Reunion”. One more change would occur until Nick joined “The Skyliners”. That would be with a show band called “Magic Moments”. Nick remained with that group until he was asked by Jimmy Beaumont to join “The Skyliners”. Nick Pociask sings bass, baritone and at times, lead for “The Skyliners. He has a 4 to 5 octave range and loves to “hurt himself” by singing falsetto.
Nick now lives more in the country and finds great solace in the beautiful scenery and wildlife that Pennsylvania has to offer. Nick also has the daunting task of trying to keep up with the emails on our website. Patience, patience, patience everyone!!!!
With the death of the group’s long time manager, Joe Rock, Nick assumed the role of the business manager of the group. He now does the bookings and all the duties that go with it.
