The Nick La Riviere Band

Sep 21 at 7:00pm - 9:30pm

$22 – $25

The 7 piece Nick La Riviere Band, takes its influence from modern New Orleans music… not the older dixie music some people think of when they hear ‘New Orleans’, but the fun, horn heavy music people are partying to there now. The music is all about having a good time, keeping the energy high the whole show, and moving your feet. Nick’s originals are like if Trombone Shorty met Ben Folds – wild horn solos, piano based grooves and melodic vocals. The band also plays their own take on tunes by great artists like Professor Longhair and Sly and the Family Stone. Featuring 3 vocals, trumpet, sax, trombone, guitar, piano/synth, bass, drums – and sometimes conch shells or wine glasses, the band delivers a big powerful sound.

“Infectious, energetic, and fun. This band has it all!”
Darryl Mar, Artistic Director, Victoria Jazz Society

“The extraordinarily talented trombonist, Nick La Riviere, is a true showman. His enthusiasm and energy totally engaged the audience and it was obvious that he loved every minute of what he was doing on stage.”
Sheila Midgley, Galiano Concert Society

“…his headlining appearances qualify as mark-your-calendar nights of entertainment.”
Mike Devlin, Times Colonist

“A really lyrical sound.”
Wynton Marsalis

“Infectious, energetic, and fun. This band has it all!”
Darryl Mar, Artistic Director, Victoria Jazz Society
