PICTOU—Michael Kaeshammer opens the deCoste Centre fall season on Sept, 19 at 8 p.m.
The boogie-woogie pianist best known as a must-see live act reaffirms his true colours in concert: he loves R&B, particularly if there’s a New Orleans roll to the beat. Pop often takes the centre stage, while jazz rarely gets forgotten for long, but there’s joyous, authoritative swing to his work.
Kaeshammer’s performances, on record and on stage, are an invitation to join the party. He doesn’t play at you. He plays with you.
“For me the performance is as much about the energy coming off the stage as the energy coming from the audience. It’s about being myself, writing from the heart and showing my love for life. That’s what I want to convey. After the show, people ask me, ‘do you really have that much fun?’ And I say ‘you don’t know the half of it. It’s even more exhilarating than it looks’.”
Tickets for Michael Kaeshammer are on sale at the deCoste Centre box office, on line at www.decostecentre.ca and will be available at the door. Call 1-800-353-5338 for further information.
