Nick La Riviere is one of Victoria’s busiest musicians. Recently returned from a successful tour of Germany, Luxembourg, and Italy with Locarno from Vancouver, Nick has been performing with The Paperboys, Michael Kaeshammer, The Riverside (featuring members of 54-40, Grapes of Wrath), and many more groups including his own bands. His recently released album Another Time Around features his trombone work, singing, and conch shell playing.
The Nick La Riviere Septet will be performing at Hermann’s Jazz Club on Saturday, August 13th. The band features Richard Moody (violin), Julian Vitek (violin), Alasdair Money (cello), Aidan Miller (piano), Sean Drabitt (bass), and Damian Graham (drums), as well as special guest vocalists Deven Miles, Allie George, Lauren Marshall, and Heather La Riviere. The diverse musical selections will include energetic jazz as heard on his 2009 debut album Too Much To Do, which critic Jeremiah Sutherland at Island Jazz summed up as “If Nick La Riviere’s debut release were a person, you’d want it sitting next to you on a plane trip because it’s just so darn entertaining. The album is exuberant, multi-facted, humorous, outgoing, and just fun to be around.” The show will also feature the more funk/pop/R&B influenced music on the new album, Another Time Around, described as “infectious, energetic, and fun” by Darryl Mar, Artistic Director of the Victoria Jazz Festival.
