Late Night Phantasmagoria with Jack Lukeman

By | Published on Wednesday 26 August 2015


It’s difficult for a musician to take me (and the rest of this small, tired crowd) from ready for bed to up and dancing along. But Jack Lukeman has the great voice, high energy, and above all, the stage presence to really warm up an audience. ‘Late Night Phantasmagoria’ is a combination of high-energy blues and soft lullabies, appealing to both the possibilities of an 11pm audience: tipsy and fun, or tired and floppy. He has the versatility for both and makes great song choices, though if pressed I might say that while the more rock-based songs were his natural element, I generally preferred the quieter numbers. However your evening has gone, Jack Lukeman will provide the perfect nightcap.

The Famous Spiegeltent, until 31 Aug.
