Nick La Riviere has made a full time living as a musician for the last 12 years. He has performed in many parts of the world, including Mexico, England, Ireland, Germany, Luxembourg, Austria, Switzerland, The USA, and across Canada. Nick has toured with award winning bands that play jazz, folk, pop, latin, Celtic, klezmer, classical, ska, and more. He plays trombone, conch shells, bass, and sings. He’s also known for using a programmable harmonizer with his trombone to make one horn sound like a three piece section. Nick plays with many different bands including The Paperboys, Locarno, The HiFi, Adonis Puentes, and Michael Kaeshammer, and more. He’s also been a special guest with various bands including 54•40, Nikki Yanofsky, and The Temptations.
The Nick La Riviere Band features danceable and listenable original songs influenced by artists like Sam Cooke, Jamiroquai, Trombone Shorty, and others. In addition to originals, live shows include energetic rearranged covers of tunes by Dr John, Bill Withers, The Box Tops, and more. Nick’s conch shell playing is always a big hit, and brings something to the show that most people have never seen before.
Enjoy a drink in our casual setting and stay after to meet the musicians.
