PORTSMOUTH, N.H., June 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club Features GRAMMY® Award Nominee & 7x-Blues Music Award-Winning Keyboardist/Pianist and Vocalist VICTOR WAINWRIGHT & THE TRAIN on Saturday July 8 at 7 & 9:30 P.M. Victor Wainwright is a high-octane, dynamic performer with a large dose of soul. “Victor Wainwright is all about boogie woogie piano, deep soul, and a voice that recalls Dr. John at his best. He is a blues star, a tremendous player,” raves Chicago Blues Guide.
“Not only is Victor one of the greatest blues piano players in the business, he’s also a world class entertainer and vocalist.”
— BLUES REVUE MAGAZINE
“Wainwright serves as an electrifying guide to a good time…”
— LIVING BLUES MAGAZINE
“The musicianship is downright exquisite…”
— ROCK & BLUES MUSE
Though his career began over a decade ago with genuine rock n’ roll honky-tonk, Victor Wainwright has broadened his artistic scope over the years to include music representing virtually every corner of the roots music world. In 2016, Wainwright won the “B.B. King Entertainer of the Year” Award (the Blues Music Award given every year to the most outstanding live performer), and he and his band won “Band of the Year.”
In 2018, Wainwright and his band received a GRAMMY® Award Nomination for “Best Contemporary Blues Album” for their self-titled album, Victor Wainwright and The Train, which reached #1 on the Billboard Blues Album Chart. Wainwright was described by American Blues Scene as, “a force to be reckoned with on the piano. He IS honky-tonk and boogie, with a dose of rolling thunder.”
Victor Wainwright’s insatiable interest in music discovery and sheer love for entertaining have led him all around the world. The name of Victor Wainwright’s band, The Train, is also the most fitting of metaphors. In music folklore, the train might have associations with the freight-hopping bluesmen of yore, but with this restless boogie-woogie innovator stoking the furnace, Wainwright is a charging locomotive – surging forward, crashing through boundaries of genre, sweeping up fresh sounds and clattering headlong past the doubters.
