Piano virtuoso Dom Pipkin and his band, 'Dom and The Ikos', will be bringing authentic New Orleans inspired rhythm and blues to Docks Academy in March 2021. Support TBC.
Pipkin is one of Europe’s top exponents of New Orleans rhythm and blues. He breathes new life into the classic funk sounds of The Meters, Dr John, Fats Domino and Professor Longhair, with these influences emerging in his own irresistible song writing.
His band, Dom and the Ikos, takes the New Orleans influence and fleshes it out with drums, harmonies and wailing sax. They have been resident at Ronnie Scott's London and around the RnB club scene where their reputation as a top level live act is second to none.
Pipkin travels the world as the keyboard player with trip-hop pioneers Morcheeba, he was Musical Director for Paloma Faith, and has played for Paul Weller, Laura Mvula, Ray Davies, Pee Wee Ellis and John Newman to name a few, but has always kept a close connection to his second home, New Orleans.
A regular visitor to the Crescent City for 15 years, he has performed at the Jazz and Heritage Festival, at the world famous New Orleans “Piano Night”, and alongside its musical legends Allen Toussaint, Lilian Boutte, Jon Cleary, Ellis Marsalis and Marcia Ball. He has supported Dr John, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins and the Blind Boys of Alabama, and performed for film director Stanley Kubrik.
Pipkin delivers the most authentic and compelling take on this highly infectious and life affirming blend of blues, gospel, street and jazz that is uniquely New Orleans. He also boasts a stellar list of international festivals and radio and TV appearances and fans ranging from Jonathan Ross, Hugh Laurie, David Arnold, and Jamie Cullum!
"I can't hold a candle to this guy. He's a great piano player" - Jamie Cullum, live on Radio 2.
