As a virgin to Jack L’s music prior to this engagement I found myself
lured instantly by the charm of the occasion and this smooth charismatic
performer, supported by an equally compelling band. His voice and
alternative bluesy style offers a unique musical tool to revisit some of
the classics like The Port of Amsterdam, which he performed last night
to perfection to a captivated audience. Lukeman performed to an almost full crowd of movers and groovers, who all enjoyed a mixture of his original songs as well as soulful interpretations of tunes by musicians like Randy Newman.
For me the show climaxed in a moment of pure performance magic when the lights dimmed and Lukeman left the stage armed with only an accordion to serenade the audience. Another one of my favorites was his performance of Little Man, where his sing-a-long style injected the audience with fun and energy. The standing ovation he received was much deserved as he had the audience in the palm of his hand for over an hour. Defiantly worth a watch!
