Nicky Romero, born on 6 January 1989 grew up in a small city called "Amerongen", lived in Canada (Kingston) for a few years. Nicky hits the first snare drum at the age of 6 and started playing drums in a fanfare. After playing a year or three, he'd been asked to play in a huge group who had acts on street and big events. That was fun though, but not enough for small Nicky. At the age of 12 he got is first set of Drums, and started practising, practising and practising. Well, after 3 years playing drums everyday and night, it was enough and he changed the drums for turntables.
