One of the most authentic and spirited players of blues and New Orleans piano in Europe today. Dom Pipkin has appeared live all around the world and on TV and radio, winning and wowing fans with his electrifying live performances.
His musical life’s journey has culminated in the creation of his solo show “Smokin’ Boogie - Tales of the Big Easy, Bourbon & Bad Boys” - New Orleans piano from its very beginnings in the brothels of the early jazz age through the joyous RnB boom of the 50s, marked by artists such as Fats Domino and Professor Longhair, into the heady drug-fuelled excesses and funk of James Booker and the “Nite Tripper” Dr John.
A mixture of stories, humour, and unfiltered raw blues piano, the show has been an instant success, with hugely enthusiastic and glowing audience responses. Pipkin is an engaging and true performer, with no compromise in his playing, passing on the true folk history of the heart of blues and jazz piano and its colourful practicioners and keeping alive the traditions they themselves learned from and passed on in an entertaining and eye-opening style.
