Description

Singer-songwriter Nick La Riviere is an accomplished trombonist who has toured internationally with bands such as the Juno award winning Paperboys, Michael Kaeshammer, 54-40, and Adonis Puentes. He’s been a special guest with such bands as Steven Page (Barenaked Ladies), The Temptations, and Nikki Yanofsky.  As a freelancer, he’s one of Victoria’s busiest musicians.  He has house gigs at Bard & Banker on Thursdays, Darcy’s Pub on Sundays, and Pagliacci’s every 2nd Sunday (before Darcy’s). Aside from the house gigs, he’s booked with plenty of other shows in and outside of Victoria… there’s always a lot going on.  Just take a look at the show schedule here.

Nick’s own project, The Nick La Riviere 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 Longhairand Sly and the Family Stone.  Featuring 3 vocals, trumpet, sax, trombone, guitar, piano/synth, bass, drums – and sometimes conch shells or wine glasses, the 7 piece band delivers a big powerful sound.  For more about that band, click here.
