Join piano and harmonica player Joe Nichols and his duo for a sonic journey through the eras of classic and modern funk, soul and jazz from Stevie Wonder to Leon Bridges and Miles Davis to Roy Hargrove.
Joe Nichols is the bandleader, keyboardist/pianist and composer for prominent UK jazz group Nimbus Sextet. Nimbus Sextet’s two albums on Acid Jazz Records – Dreams Fulfilled (2020) and Forward Thinker (2022) – have gained universal acclaim from the likes of Jazz FM, Jazzwise and BBC Radio 2. Nichols has firmly established himself as a major voice in the new wave of UK jazz, performing to packed and sold out audiences at Europe’s top jazz venues including Ronnie Scott’s, New Morning (Paris) and Pizza Express Jazz Club among many others.
Joe is also a prolific multi instrumentalist and virtuoso harmonica player, known for his versatility across many genres. As part of an illustrious wider career, he has performed and recorded with the late British folk/soul legend Linda Lewis, The Lewis Sisters and the Gilles Peterson championed folk-funk outfit The Paracosmos among others.
Joe will be joined by soulful vocalist and close collaborator Ant Thomaz, frontman for the popular Scottish funk outfit DopesickFly.
