 Bio

Singer-songwriter Nick La Riviere is an accomplished trombonist who tours internationally with bands such as the Juno award winning Paperboys, Michael Kaeshammer, and Adonis Puentes. Drawing from his experience of playing shows of many different genres, Nick incorporates jazz, R&B and funk into his own compositions. His high energy show has been a big hit at theatres and festivals such as  The Islands Folk Fest, Victoria Jazz Fest, and Island Music Fest. Home town shows are consistently sold out and festival shows attract a dancing crowd.

The Nick La Riviere Band features catchy and danceable original songs influenced by artists like Trombone Shorty, Sam Cooke, and Jamiroquai to name a few. The recent album, Another Time Around, rich in variety, has received plenty of media attention. In addition to originals, live shows include energetic rearranged covers of tunes by Dr John, Bill Withers, The Box Tops, and more. Nick’s conch shell playing is always a big hit, and brings something to the show that most people have never seen before.

Live Videos

Check out the first video for the most recent footage of the new 7 piece version of the band.  It was filmed with an iPhone and a GoPro so it's not as sharp as the other clips, but it gives you the best idea of what the new project is like live!
