Event Details

Authentic New Orleans piano R&B grooves and funk from pianist Dom Pipkin.
“I can’t hold a candle to this guy…” Jamie Cullum.
“Flails the organ to within a millimetre of Jimmy Smith and just dig that almighty piano.” Straight No Chaser Magazine
“A serious piano player..” Blues In Britain Magazine
Former Musical Director for Paloma Faith, London based piano player Dom Pipkin was originally a member of Errol Linton’s Blues Vibe, before splitting to form his own group ‘Dom Pipkin and the Ikos’.
His style developed out of a love of the New Orleans piano professors – Professor Longhair, James Booker, Huey ‘Piano’ Smith, Jon Cleary, as well as from a whole host of jazz and blues influences, such as Errol Garner and Otis Spann. His solo set (most famously booked privately by the late Stanley Kubrik) shows his classical and sometimes rhapsodic influences, married with a tough approach to the blues and driving left hand rhythms.
Through his regular piano solo slot at the legendary Black Gardenia club in Soho he became friends with Paloma Faith, with whom he recorded and toured all over the world.
Whether rocking solo piano sets at speakeasies such as London’s Nightjar and Ronnie Scott’s, or providing funked out and experimental keys with bandleaders Bukky Leo, Roy Pfeffer, Ramon Goose, Kevin Davy or James Evans around town, Dom Pipkin always brings that bit of New Orleans/blues/grit to any musical situation.
