Friday, Nov. 27/15 – Blues & Boogie Woogie piano king returns to his roots…
When Michael Kaeshammer arrived in Victoria BC from Offenburg Germany in 1993 at age 16, he took this town by storm. He’d been playing piano for 10 years already. A friend encouraged me to get down to The Fernwood Inn and catch his Thursday night gig. Impressive would be an understatement.
After arriving in Canada, Michael set about building a career, and what a career it’s been. With 10 albums released to date, on Friday evening he kicks off a series of performances that take him from Fort Lauderdale to a performance at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa.
“He’s a showman. If you haven’t seen him live you haven’t really experienced him in his true element” – THE MONTREAL GAZETTE
As you can tell from watching this video we will be in for a treat on Friday evening during Michael’s performance at the McPherson Theatre in downtown Victoria.
