Hold on to your seats Dom & The Iko’s are in town!
Bringing the soul of New Orleans to #tlvenue, Dom Pipkin is a top pianist, making the likes of Jools and Jamie Cullum pick their jaws up off the floor. This awesome outfit will be celebrating NOLA greats, Dr John, James Booker, and Professor Longhair – plus playing a whole host of original tunes.
“When Dom plays the piano magic happens” – Paloma Faith
Pipkin’s startling talent has seen him travel the world, sharing the stage with the likes of Allen Toussaint, Marcia Ball, and Screamin’ Jay Hawkins; recording with Pee Wee Ellis, ZIgaboo Modeliste from the Meters, and even David Byrne of the Talking Heads. When he’s not doing solo gigs or playing with The Iko’s, he can be found on the road with the 90’s trip-hop legends, Morcheeba.
