About Dan Nichols

Dan Nichols is a product of the Union for Reform Judaism and the Jewish camping movement. He has toured Jewish summer camps across North America for the last 22 years. A classically trained singer, Dan received his Bachelor of Music degree in vocal performance at the University of North Carolina. In 1995, realizing the potential of music to make powerful connections with Jewish youth, Dan established the Jewish rock band Eighteen. Since that time, Dan and Eighteen have released 13 albums.
