Exceptional piano and keyboard skills, with a wonderfully rich voice. Solo piano with voice, solo piano, or multiple band options available. Able to perform a variety of musical styles: jazz, classical, country, RnB, and popular music on the piano for any occasion, including weddings, private parties, restaurants, clubs, bars, senior homes, etc. Alternately, I recently have released an album of original upbeat, funky, pop music and have a new band ready to go! Whether it's a solo act, a male/female vocal duo (with piano), my original dance funk pop band, a classic rock band, or jazz combo, I can help you to put together the appropriate combination for your event, and make it a success!
Everybody loved the type an quality of music performed. Lucas was very accommodating and gentlemanly.
Firstly-Polite and efficient setup and getting started for event. Lucas arrived on time and was flexible to allow the previous act to complete their set since the previous group arrived and started late.
Secondly- Cooperative and helpful in having our own guests sing along on a number.
THIRDLY: VERY VERY positive reviews from many guests. It was like having the "ANIMALS" from House of the Rising SUN fame playing at your own event
SINGER was first rate; Drummer was excellent and Lucas made the ivories bounce!
Our venue was indoors; the band was located on a stage; The facility was still under construction but usable. There were no complaints from the band about having to use extension cords for power or for subdued lighting on the dance floor!
Selection of music was such that people could dance or listen and enjoy a PRIVATE concert!
This is a JAZZ band with a raspy edge!
Would I book them again .... WITHOUT A DOUBT!!!!
Response from Lucas Hunter:
Thanks so much Joe, we enjoyed ourselves too
Lucas did a great job for our wedding at the Walper! Everyone loved his voice and piano playing.
A fantastic event ... at our request he played various Elton John tunes. He also jammed with one of the guests who played clarinet - a couple of pieces from Porgy and Bess and many others. Lucas was comfortable with the guests and accommodating to young children in attendance who wanted to watch him play .... all the best Lucas ....
My wife and i hired Lucas for our wedding. We requested for him to play and sing for a portion of the night to add another dimension to our wedding day. Lucas filled the bill perfectly, his performance was very professional and of a high quality. Lucas put in the time and effort to learn new songs specifically for our wedding. I would certainly recommend Lucas for any function looking for a talented pianist and singer.
Thank you Lucas.
Great pianist ... made the evening unbelievable! Thank you!!!
Lucas Hunter did a wonderful job playing at our Speakeasy party. He was on time, professional throughout, and well prepared for the event. The guests really enjoyed his music, and he did a great job with the Speakeasy sound we wanted. We would have him back any time.
I recently got married an hired Lucas to play piano for the reception which I had at my home. Lucas was amazing! He has such a great range of musical talent. He played jazz, pop, classical, everything my guests requested and more! It was such a pleasure to have you. My guests were all so impressed they want to hire Lucas for their own events. Thank you Lucas, you really did a fantastic job and I will definitely be hiring you again in the future.
Lucas Hunter accompanied my Grade 8 students on piano while they sang the final song of our school graduation ceremony. Mr. Hunter had only a few days to learn the Phil Collin's song, and he was able to do so easily. He was punctual, professional and played beautifully. We highly recommend him.
