The Neighbors: Nicholas & Hassani

Chauncey Street is home to a number of artistic talents, including block favorite Nicholas Packer, who heads up the R&B-Soul-Funk-Blues-Pop Band @soundsoftriumph. Nick has put his musical range on full display at gatherings like the holiday and block parties and is known for serenading his neighbors from his stoop. 

In the evening, you can sometimes hear some horn from Nick's collaborator Hassani Arthur, floating over Marion Hopkinson Park. Hassani has been everywhere from Julliard to Kendrick Lamar videos, but he makes our area his home. Learn more about his music here
