www.lukehendonmusic.com
Audiences love our gypsy jazz-infused energy, technical prowess and exciting improvisation. The all-acoustic instrumentation is reminiscent of Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club Bands of the 30's and 40's, but don't try to peg this band as as Gypsy Jazz cover band! The Luke Hendon Acoustic Combo rings fresh with a unique, soulful vibrance. Luke's compositions and arrangements mix his passion for Django Reinhardt and gypsy jazz with basically... EVERYTHING ELSE! Luke already has a lifetime of achievement... riling crowds of thousands into a funk frenzy, putting the frosting on hip hop tracks, touring with authentic west african, folk, rock, jazz and pop bands, and even donning a mandatory cowboy hat down in Texas for some country gigs. That's a lot of stuff to have in your back pocket!

The Newark-born/South Philly-residing vocalist/multi-instrumentalist laughs easily about being one of few black guys in a primarily Caucasian scene. His brand new debut solo jawn, the sweet-spirited Access Card, is his most dramatic stuff yet: sample-heavy punk and dub, with spacey soul elements. Add in his angelic voice and poignant lyrical sensibility and the results are akin to Gnarls Barkley meeting Big Audio Dynamite.

www.jacobvarmus.com
Jacob Varmus left his hometown, San Francisco, in 1991 to go to the University of Iowa. Like many before him, he had high hopes of coming of age as a poet while cruising the vast American heartland. He saw language and experience as the tools to probe the deepest layers of the human psyche. In his first year he was admitted to the undergraduate writers' workshop where he studied with Jorie Graham. As he produced poems unremittingly and charted the labyrinthine maze of academic life as an English major, he also played trumpet devotedly, getting a good classical foundation with David Greenhoe. Although not set on a career in music he was nonetheless engrossed in the music of the great jazz trumpeters, Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis, to name a few. Chet Baker and Woody Shaw were also early favorites and of special import to his trumpet sound then and now.
