Saturday I finished work and got invited to the Saskatoon Symphony Pops concert with Ms. Nikki Yanofsky. Combining Jazz and Classical sounded great and Tommy Banks was conducting so I jumped on it!
First off Tommy Banks has chops like I’ve never imagined on the piano, speaks super well (he was or maybe still is a Senator in Canadian Parliament) and has a general charm.
That charm is overshadowed by Nikki Yanofsky. Holly cats on fire in a bag at the bottom of the underpass! She is 15 and sings like a goddess. I wasn’t in love with her original songs but her covers were superb.
p.s. Nikki, you can come sing on our next 3p forsho!
