Biography

The Nick Straker Band, from London, England, was a popular music group, led by musician and vocalist Nick Straker, who had a handful of hits on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart. The group also consisted of several members of the band New Musik. Their most successful song in the U.S., “A Little Bit of Jazz,” spent one week at #1 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play Charts in 1981. Their song “A Walk in the Park” hit #20 on the UK Singles Chart in 1980, having previously been a substantial hit in Continental Europe in 1979. In 2005 the German team of producers known as The Conways remixed and sampled “A Walk in the Park”, and gave the Nick Straker Band credit as a featured artist on the single by the same name.

Group members include Nick Straker, Tony Mansfield, Pete Hammond and Phil Towner.
