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!”
