A show with The Nick La Riviere Band is like taking a trip down to modern New Orleans, where the music is loud and proud, with brass adding funky lines to each groove, and every song is played with soul and power. The music is all about having a good time and moving your feet. It’s a night on the town that will leave you wired. Their originals blend influences like Trombone Shorty with classic funk and jazz. The band plays their own take on tunes by Eddie Harris, Sly & the Family Stone, and Curtis Mayfield. Featuring three vocalists, trumpet, sax, trombone, guitar, piano/synth, bass, drums – and sometimes conch shells or sousaphone, the 7 piece band delivers a big powerful sound.
The band features Miguelito Valdes, Barrie Sorensen, Kelly Fawcett, Chris van Sickle, Louis Rudner, and Liam MacDonald.
