THIS A LIVE MUSICAL EVENT AT “THE MUSIC LOUNGE”.642 Pittwater Rd, Brookvale NSW 2100
Bookings Essential…Doors open at 7pm … show starts at 8pm..
Luke Escombe has been a crowd favourite at the Music Lounge for many years. The UK-born Northern Beaches resident grew up around rock and roll music, seeing acts like Bruce Springsteen, Prince and The Rolling Stones many times when he was just a boy. Trouble with chronic illness in his teens drew him to the blues, where he found inspiration in the grooves and stories of the great storytellers like John Lee Hooker and Lightning Hopkins. To these musical influences he brings a sharp, poetic wit and wicked sense of humour that has seen him win awards at comedy and fringe festivals around the country. Add to that his extraordinarily deep voice, once voted “Sydney’s sexiest man voice” on a popular radio station, and you have one fascinating, frequently hilarious and fantastically entertaining package. Put simply, there’s no-one else like him. Luke will be accompanied by bassist Nick Hoorweg and sax player Ross Harrington, two highly talented sidemen who first joined Luke at last year’s Vivid Festival. If you haven’t had the pleasure of seeing Luke perform, mark this date on your calendar as a MUST. I promise you will not be disappointed. ‘Luke Escombe is a rock-soul singer, raconteur, blistering blues guitarist, comedian and songwriter, and is very good at them all. His commanding voice carries echoes of Dr John, Bruce Springsteen, Nick Cave and Jim Morrison’ – John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald
