$22/$20 Students/UJAM/VJS
The Nick La Riviere Band is back at Hermann’s for 2 nights! Featuring some of Victoria and Vancouver’s best players, the 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, Dr John, Sly & the Family Stone. One audience member described the show as “the most fun I’ve had in my adult life”. Mike Devlin from the Times Colonist says “his headlining appearances qualify as mark-your-calendar nights of entertainment”.
