Luke Hendon Acoustic Combo

My group plays original compositions and jazz standards inspired by Gypsy jazz (Django Reinhardt) as well as modern music. We are accomplished musicians and we all play acoustic instruments.

Luke Hendon draws from the tradition of the legendary gypsy guitar of Django Reinhardt and comes out swinging with his own project. In this stripped down acoustic setting, Luke's guitar takes center stage. "I sort of got obsessed with learning a bunch of Django Reinhardt solos note for note-which took me several years-Now I try to take the technique I gained into creating my own music!" Bud Kopman of All about Jazz had this to say about the group. “Django's music always brings a smile to the lips and transports one back 1930s France … Hendon's music does the same, but also with a foot planted firmly in the here and now.”
