Dom Pipkin Brings The Big Easy Back to Leeds


Keyboard wizard Dom Pipkin returns to Leeds with his band ‘The Ikos’ this weekend to bring the blues, soul, funk and jazz of piano-driven New Orleans grooves. The group perform at The Domino Club, The Grand Arcade on Saturday 12 August.

The all-star combo, with playing credits ranging from Dr John, Laura Mvula, Paul Weller, Maceo Parker, Pee Wee Ellis, Ray Davies and David Byrne create a party wherever they go with their deep funky sound, with original material and vintage classics they conjure the spirit of the greats –  Fats Domino, Professor Longhair, The Meters, and many many more.

Among thier accolades is a ringing endorsement from no less an authority than Meters drummer and acknowledged godfather of New Orleans funk, Zigaboo Modeliste: “Dom brings the whole New Orleans thing to the UK.  So good!”
