The Naticks

The members of The Naticks initially met through Scouting at a young age. Learning of their common interest in music, the band began jamming together in 2007. They first hit the Rhode Island live circuit in 2010 by the name Juice. With several variations along the way, The Naticks have retained four main members since 2007: Ross, Drew, Chris, and Kevin. A four year hiatus led to some creative inspiration, stepping stone gigs, and the addition of a sax player, Barrett.

Though they are not from Natick, the band appreciates the local history and Native American roots. They found the word’s meaning (a place of searching) to be representative of themselves as a band and as individuals.​ Now, reinvigorated, The Naticks are ready to explore some new sound and make some serious noise
