When Nick Hoen walked into the bar that day he didn't even think he was going to meet his music partner, or his wife but he did. Open Tab's musical journey began with a piano rendition of No Diggity and continued with 3 bands over 100 shows and a marriage! Putting their own twist on covers no song is off limits to be played acoustically. Nicks full rich guitar tone built from years of playing mixed with what the City Pages described as "Carmyn's charismatic presence and confident voice" make it easy for Rebel Yell to rock and Higher Ground to groove . Their originals are a great mix of stunning riffs, and clever lyrics. Lyrics are always written from the music. So the music dictates the emotion of the song.
