The Nick La Riviere Band
Sat. July 31st 7:00pm - 9:00pm doors at 5:30pm (All Ages)
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 most sought after musicians.
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. A musical journey not to be missed. As both a composer and an arranger, Nick creates every line and groove in his music. This sets him apart from bands that create their music in more of a collaborative manner, and gives his music a strong connected quality.
Nick will be joined by Barrie Sorensen on sax, Chris Van Sickle on keys, Louis Rudner on bass, and Alex Campbell on drums. Guaranteed fun!
