Luke Hendon draws from the tradition of the legendary gypsy guitar of Django Reinhardt and comes out swinging, soulful, funky, fresh, and innovative with his own project. In this stripped down acoustic setting, Luke's guitar takes center stage.
Luke has been a session guitar player doing pop, funk, blues, folk, rock, jazz, and world music in a plethora of settings. He has opened for legendary acts such as Al Green, Sun Ra, and Los Lobos, performed on Broadway, composed and recorded for television and film, worked with dance ensembles, cruise ships, theatre companies, and bands. Recently he became obsessed with the music of the great Django Reinhardt and started playing around the NYC area with Gypsy Jazz groups as a sideman. His Acoustic Combo takes a step into the present drawing on these rich traditions while infusing his own voice and influences of today.
