Dom Pipkin leads his consummately talented ensemble with piano and voice, brazing a trail though both well-known and obscure New Orleans jazz, blues, RnB and funk. Pipkin’s long-standing association with all things New Orleans fits perfectly with DJ Lil’ Koko, equally steeped in the NOLA tradition. Pipkin and Koko ran some of the best New Orleans nights in town, including the legendary “Music Shop” on Denmark Street and the Mardi Gras residency at Ronnie Scott’s.
Long sets deep into the night take in the sounds of Jon Cleary, Smiley Lewis, Professor Longhair, Huey “Piano” Smith and beyond, mixed with Pipkin’s own distinctive songwriting.
“Dom brings the whole New Orleans thing to the UK. So good! “ – Zigaboo Modeliste, the Meters.
