Errington War Memorial Hall performance series returns for 2021-22 season

First show on Friday, Nov. 12 features the Nick La Riviere Band

The Errington War Memorial Hall performance series is back for 2021-22. The series features stellar artists who will delight a wide range of ages and musical tastes.

Starting on Friday, Nov. 12, the Nick La Riviere Band plays the hall at 8 p.m.

Riviere’s original music is influenced by a diverse mix of artists – from Ben Folds to Trombone Shorty to Allen Toussaint. Piano-centric pop and funk grooves with New Orleans style horns and wild trombone solos that could have been 80’s guitar solos. A dynamic performance, from a whisper to a roar, from a protest song to a feel-good. A musical journey not to be missed.

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.

Riviere is bringing Miguel Valdes (trumpet), Barrie Sorensen (sax), Kelly Fawcett (guitar), Chris Van Sickle (keys), Louis Rudner (bass), and Alex Campbell (drums) with him to the stage.

Tickets for the show are available online at https://erringtonhall.tickit.ca for $22.50.
