Live Reviews

Do any readers have reviews of Luke at live performances. We’d be keen to read them.

Luke is relatively unknown “up North” and might be good to give everyone a flavour of what his concerts are like.

Here are a couple of examples we came across just recently. Thanks Kay who wrote about a concert on April 24, 2008

from Luke Hurley
Went to see at Backstage last night. Unfortunately we didn’t stay until the end as I had an early start for work the next morning. He threatened to keep singing until 1.00 a.m. … I wonder if he did.

He seems to have boundless energy and an amusing unpretentiousness (“This is a song I wrote outside Arthur Barnett’s”) which is reflected in his music.

I guess his music fits into the folk-rock bracket – however, it is also a fairly organic style, so has the potential to bound away from any attempt to label.

Or this mention from fellow musician Dave Alley at D. Parker & Luke Hurley… noice gig…

“…then Luke comes on to a hushed crowd of committed, and soon to be, fans.

dude plays an immaculate set and regales the gathered throughout with tales of the life of a true troubador.

as a guitarist i sit and marvel, as a songwriter i’m gob-smacked..

as a punter (and sound guy in this case) i simply enjoy…”

Thanks again Kay and Dave.

Write in with a comment or any live concert stories of your own, we’d love to hear them. More news very soon.
