January 12th 2023

Nico Rhodes Trio

Following last week's stunning first concert of the year, Georgia Straight Jazz Society continues to bring top notch live jazz to Comox Valley when B3 organist Nico Rhodes brings his trio to the stage of Little Red Church in Comox. Doors open at 7:00pm. Downbeat is at 7:30 pm.

Taking a deep dive into the groovin' traditions of soul jazz, the Midnight Preachers are guaranteed to exorcise the woes of your day. With grimy shuffles, rip roaring jams, and powerful ballads, Kosma Busheikin, James McRae and Nico Rhodes will take you on a wild ride that will leave you exhausted and refreshed, all in the same breath.

A musical alchemy is alive between these three souls, as Kosma's lyrical and introspective style is set in direct contrast to James "Wildman" McRae's fiery and unpredictable drumming. Nico Rhodes completes the triad on B3 organ, aka "the mothership", which swings from whisper to roar within in the blink of an eye.

Not for the faint of heart, when the Preachers deliver their sermon, feet move of their own volition, and hair stands on end. A musical rollercoaster, a firework show, and a hurricane of creativity is what the audience will experience.

So, come join the Midnight Preachers and let your cares melt away as your feet move you in your seat.
