Hard-driving classic R&B tunes and golden oldies are on the menu when Victoria trombonist Nick La Riviere brings Soul Source, his 19-piece community rhythm-and-blues band, to Pat’s House of Jazz at the Crofton Hotel’s Osborne Bay Pub on Sunday, Dec. 10.

The band includes a bevy of vocalists, saxes and brass and a five-piece rhythm section.

La Riviere is much in demand. He plays regularly with the international touring band The Paperboys and with Michael Kaeshammer, Pretzel Logic and the Timebenders.

The show, the final one of the year, is part of the weekly jazz series at the pub, at 1534 Joan Ave. in Crofton, Sundays at 2 p.m. Now in its fifth year, the series resumes after the holidays on Jan. 14, 2018 with Afro-Cuban pianist Pablo Cardenas.

The series is presented by the Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society. Admission is $15. For information, phone 250-324-2245 or visit http://osbornebaypub.com.
