Conch, Strings, and a Trombone at Hermann’s

March 30, 2011

Trombonist Nick La Riviere returns to Hermann’s on Friday April 1 (8 pm) with his highly original  septet, featuring strings (2 violins and a cello), trombone, conch shell, a rhythm section (Karel Roessingh, piano; Joey Smith, bass; and Damian Graham, drums), and an appearance by vocalist Aurora Scott.

La Riviere, never one to produce a stale show, has written new music and arranged other material specifically for this performance. He promises a vibrant mix of standards, funk, Latin and “even bit of humour.”  Don’t be surprised if he pulls out a smoke machine and a disco ball. (It could happen – you read it here first).

Should be a good show. Reservations recommended. 250 388-9166. Tickets $15. www.NickLaRiviere.com
