Dave Nickolson had his 10-year-old guitar, that his mother gifted to him, stolen. That’s when his passion for music started to fade. In Oct. 2016, the Dover Police Dept. recovered his guitar from a local pawn shop and returned it to Dave. As a way to say thanks to the Dover Police Dept., he held an event called, “Play It Back,” where all the proceeds went to Dover Police Holiday Heroes Program. Dave has hopes to continue “Play It Back” this year as well. He also gives us a performance today!
