A native of the Twin Cities in Minnesota, pianist Nick Rueckert has lived in Iowa and performed around the Midwest since completing his undergraduate degree at Drake University in 2011. Since then, Nick has been a regular member of the Des Moines Big Band and has performed regularly with The Turner Center Jazz Orchestra, Parranderos Latin Combo, The Des Moines Metro Concert & Big Bands, as well as alongside a variety of local and visiting artists. He arranges and composes music for his own project, the Nick Rueckert Quartet, as well as for the Max Wellman Sextet.

 Nick completed his master’s degree in music education from Boston University in 2019 and currently teaches instrumental music in Ankeny, Iowa and teaches jazz piano in his own studio.


None of us at Noce are taking your health and safety lightly. We are taking a very carefully curated approach to this new process, & promise to keep a diligent eye on our operations as we continue down this road.

Whether it's with the strict mask policy or spaced out tables, it may feel incredibly different than before all of this began. The good news is that once you're in your seat with a cocktail in hand & a great band on the stage, you'll have everything you need for another great night at Noce.
