Friday, November 12th, 2021
8:00 PM

Nick La Riviere’s original music is influenced by a diverse mix of artists - from Ben Folds to Trombone Shorty to Allen Toussaint. Piano centric pop and funk grooves with New Orleans style horns and wild trombone solos that could have been 80’s guitar solos. A dynamic performance, from a whisper to a roar, from a protest song to a feel-good. A musical journey not to be missed.


Singer-songwriter Nick La Riviere is an accomplished trombonist who has toured internationally with bands such as the Juno award winning Paperboys, Michael Kaeshammer, 54-40, and Adonis Puentes. He's been a special guest with such bands as Steven Page (Barenaked Ladies), The Temptations, and Nikki Yanofsky. As a freelancer, he's one of Victoria's busiest musicians.


As well as Nick, the musicians are Miguel Valdes (trumpet), Barrie Sorensen (sax), Kelly Fawcett (guitar), Chris Van Sickle (keys), Louis Rudner (bass), and Alex Campbell (drums). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jC9mBEWjOOM
