Event Notes

× Two Different Concerts with Andrew Homzy’s NOLA Nighthawks Saturday May 18th @ 7:30pm & Sunday May 19th @ 2:30pm - Each performance fetaures different songs. AT THESE INFORMATIVE AND INTER-ACTIVE CONCERTS, YOU WILL LEARN THE STORY ABOUT HOW NEW ORLEANS MUSIC RELATES TO MANY OF THE SONGS YOU LOVE. ANDREW HOMZY | DIRECTOR/PIANO Website: FaceBook: HomzyMusic Andrew Homzy has an international reputation as a Musician - composer/scholar/producer. Since moving from Montréal to Nanaimo (2009) he decided to return to what brought him into music - traditional jazz and the total spectrumof New Orleans music. In 2018, he began researching and studying how the Beatles interacted with various musical influences and discovered remarkable associations with jazz, which had become a mainstream popular music in England from 1945 to 1963. Andrew then began crafting arrangements of various Beatles tunes which present a compendium of NOLA* styles - bringing the audience into a creative imaginary alternate reality. Channeling the spirit of legendary and innovative NOLA musicians such as Louis Armstrong, Fats Domino, Allen Toussaint, the Neville Brothers, Dr. John, and many others, each arrangement recasts beloved Beatles songs in different styles, but always keeps the melodies foremost.
