|Steve and Ria
||Nigel, what can we say, you left too early.
I feel like I am the luckiest man to have worked with you for 35 years, you were an incredible friend, you have been my mentor, gave me confidence, adviser, a shoulder to cry on, but most of all a father figure who was always there for me and my family. I will never forget you.
I have been honoured to have known you as man and boy.
We will miss you loads and our thoughts are with Bev and all the family. Love always
|Paul and Esquin
||From time to time, we all meet people who have a lasting influence on our lives. I can honestly say that my dear friend Nigel had more influence on us than he would have ever have realised.
He was a constant in my career and was always supportive and prepared to advise. Most important was he never made judgements. I had so much respect for him as a family man, businessman but most importantly as a most caring, generous and honest human being.
Nigel, for me, had all the qualities needed for life and I know he had a lasting effect on all the people he met along the way, no matter how brief that meeting.
Although I cannot believe I won’t see that cheeky smile again it has been a true honour to have known Nigel and our thoughts and wishes go out to his wife Bev and all of his family.
Personally, we have so much to thank him for that words cannot express but one thing is for sure we will never forget you and we are proud to call you a true friend.

||You’ve left us too soon,
May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
May the rain fall softly on your fields
And until we meet again
May you keep safe
Rest in peace
||Words are not enough. I am so proud to have known Nigel both professionally and as a friend. I always looked forward to seeing him as he would always greet you with that lovely smile. Nothing was ever too much trouble for him. If he could help - he would. A true gentleman with a heart of gold, an absolute star who leaves a massive void in so many peoples lives.
Our love and sincerest wishes go out to Bev and all the family.
Sleep tight Nigel x
Love from the Nix family x x x
||Over 30 years of friendship and business together, Nigel was always the kindest, most genuine man you could wish to meet. His energy and enthusiasm were always inspirational and it was an absolute pleasure to be in his company. At various times we were competitors, he was my customer, I was his customer - but regardless of our business relationship at that time, we were always friends as well. He will be so sadly missed by us all and remembered as one of the music industry ‘greats’. Thank you Nige for all the good times. My thoughts and prayers with Bev and family.
||It has been an honour to know you Nigel as a great friend & music industry colleague for a number of years, Spent many hours with you since 2013 & loved every minute of it both personally & professionally, I’ll never ever forget you mate & thanks for everything. Sending all our love to you, Bev & all the family, RIP Nige, Pete & Yvonne xx

||Such sad news. A true gentlemen taken toon soon. Will be sorely missed. RIP Nigel
||Shocked and devastated at the tragic loss of our great friend Nigel. I had the very fortunate opportunity of working closely with Nige over many years. His passion, skill and dedication to our industry is legendary alongside his ability to have a lasting effect on everyone he met. His smile and laughter was infectious and I'll dearly miss the fun and mischief that made working with him such a pleasure. His knowledge of our products and passion for his business was admirable, relentlessly offering such a high level of service - nothing was ever too much trouble. The industry has lost a true great, a man so fondly thought of, respected and admired by all.... if he only but knew.
Thanks for the business - you were dam good at it, thanks for the laughs - I'll remember your laugh forever, and thanks for being my dear, dear friend. Sleep well Nige. Always remembered. XXX
Sincere condolences to Bev and the rest of the family. Also to Steve & Ria, Paul & Esquin.
||A true professional. A wonderful ambassador for our “scene”. But much more importantly, a properly decent man.
Will always remember his increasingly futile efforts to get a drink at the Pakefield Festival bar whilst standing behind 30 very thirsty Irish Catholic priests. In the end he was jumping up and down forlornly, until one or two of the (shall we say) “sturdily built” players came to his rescue and pushed him forward in rugby front row style. :-)
He always asked how things were, had time to chat, and everyone loved him. You can’t really want for more than that.
Condolences to all. With love and best regards from Scotland.
||A lovely man that we all admired.
Always a pleasure to meet, so many qualities.
RIP Nigel, we will all miss you SO much.
Our thoughts are with Bev & the family.
Love from the Stace family. xxxx
||Absolutely gutted to learn of Nigel’s passing. Such a true gent, full of enthusiasm and always willing to go that extra mile to help people. One of life’s true ledgends…
|Neil and Jan Barkus
||We are so sad to read this news. Nigel was simply the best. So kind, so generous, so warm, so genuine. We both enjoyed being with him and working as colleagues and (very friendly) competitors in the music world. The world will be a lesser place without you Nigel. 💔xx
|Gillian and Neil
||So shocked and sad to read this news
We have met Nigel over many years at the festivals . I remember the fun at Caister when he was demonstrating a bit of equipment to enable you to sing in tune !
A really lovely and genuine gent
Our love to his family at this difficult time
||Nigel was one of the first accounts I had with Roland. I nicer, more honest and astute business man would be hard to come by. A great player and ace sales person who built his business on good old-fashioned customer service and product knowledge that was second to none, sadly lacking these days. He used to love trying to catch me out on in-depth product knowledge, desperately trying to find things the instrument would do that couldn't be found in the manual, and usually succeeding. One of my favourite accounts to visit. Nigel will be very sadly missed and my thoughts are with his family and Steve at the shop.
||I am shocked to hear Nigel has passed!
I only met Nigeria at trade events but he would always make an effort to come and chat. Instantly you could tell that a more caring and genuine person would be hard to find.
My sincere condolences
||Far to early to go all the very best to nigels family and friends He made Keysound a place not only as a shop to buy Musical gear but his knowledge would pass it on to others
Steve and Paul are doing the same the after sales is secound to none a man truly to be missed
||Nigel was a true gentleman, his enthusiasm was so infectious. He always taught me something new every time we met. He was absolutely unique - it was uplifting to go talk with Nigel. Deepest sympathy to his family and friend - such a sad loss x
|Brenda and Alan Bolton
