New Video + 2 Nights at Hermann’s with The Nick La Riviere Band
I’ve been working hard to get this done, and here it is – a fun, funky, one-man-band version of the standard ‘Gee Baby Ain’t I Good To You’. I hope you like it! You can check it out on YouTube by clicking the thumbnail above, or on Facebook by clicking here. If you like it, I hope you’ll help me out by sharing it – I’d love for people to see and hear what I’ve put all that work in to.
The Nick La Riviere Band has two shows at Hermann’s coming up on July 27th and 28th. I’m really looking forward to it! We’ve got a killer lineup featuring Miguel Valdes from the Buena Vista Social Club on trumpet, Barrie Sorensen of the Naden Band on sax, Kelly Fawcett from Nanaimo on guitar/vocals, Aidan Miller from Vancouver on keys/vocals, Dave Spidel from Vancouver on bass, and the one-and-only Damian Graham on drums. And of course me on trombone, vocals, conch shells, and whatever else I can get my hands on. We’re going to premiere some brand new original tunes that I’m really excited about at these shows, and also play some funky New Orleans tunes, Trombone Shorty, and more. Lots of energy, and fun!
Our last show there was sold out – in fact we couldn’t accommodate everyone who wanted to come in – so we’re booked for two nights this time. Come check us out, I promise it’s going to be a couple great nights. One audience member from our last show described it as ‘the most fun she’s had in her adult life’.
Table reservations can be made at www.Hermannsjazz.com – just click the show listing on the night you’d like to attend, then click register for a ticket. That guarantees you a table in the event of a sell out as long as you’re there before 7:30.
