Niall McGuinness and his New World Jazz Project perform at the Fresh Ketch every Friday starting at 6 PM.

The New World Jazz Project featuring Niall McGuinness is a hard-driving, diverse-sounding jazz ensemble that has been playing regularly on the Reno-Tahoe Jazz scene for many years. The quartet plays a distinct blend of soul, Latin, and Afro-jazz, to bebop and beyond. Niall is joined by Reno jazz stalwarts Eric Finklestein on drums, Kyle Rothchild on bass, and George Tavoularis on piano. The NWJP performs a coterie of both original music and freshly-arranged standards from the great American song book.

Niall McGuinness, saxophonist-flutist-percussionist and a second-grade teacher at Sierra House School, has brought together the most talented musicians in the region to create The New World Jazz Project to bring his passion for travel and world cultures to life. A musical performer for over 30 years, Niall’s roots are from Miami where he was turned onto jazz and Latin music, particularly salsa that allowed Niall to freely improvise and develop a style of hand percussion all his own.

His songs come alive with an injection of soulful percussions, sax, flute and piano that create an engaging mix of Latin, Soul and World Jazz music. While Niall may be the leader of the band, he definitely lets his individual band members shine. Soul, Latin, and Afro-jazz music is being played straight ahead and right down the middle, creating a fresh voice on the scene.

We live in a special place. A place so beautiful it nurtures the soul and creative spirit. A place so breathtaking it inspires conservation. A mountain culture that masters the fine art of living. Welcome to this place we call home. Welcome to Lake Tahoe. Meet the local artists, individuals, businesses and events that define our unique mountain culture and embody Tahoe's creative and entrepreneurial spirit.
