Kayt Lucas is a poet and singer in Toronto. While "popular music" describes the band's playlist, the tracks allude to rock, blues, folk, and sometimes country. Kayt plays mandolin and octave mandolin.
The Kayt Lucas Band came together in early 2012. They have developed an exhilarating performance experience that is diverse in style and cohesive in sound. The instrumentation has stylistic flexibility and virtuosity.
Members of Kayt Lucas Band:
Roy Buna plays electric guitar, bringing classical, flamenco, jazz and popular music to the mix. His lyrical style shines in this arrangement. Roy is an heart-stirring singer and songwriter as well.
Bill Galloway, a kit-drummer at heart, plays acoustic guitar for this project, with the fervour and rhythmic approach of a percussionist. Bill brings strategy to the process and tends to the arrangements in cooperation with Kayt.
Michael Menegon is a conga-kit player and percussionist with a special ability to describe musical environments in a visceral way. Michael regularly plays for dance classes and has an integrated musical relationship to movement. Look for Michael's brilliant work as a singer/songwriter as well!
Harriet Hume plays a mean bass, keeping KLB grounded and grooving. She is a multi-instrumentalist who has delved into pop and contemporary music as well as her own compositions in electronica.
Guests have included Joel Merzetti, Paul Kehayas, Mark Galloway, Keary Scanlon and others.
John Preketes is KLB's technical producer, owner/operator of JPC Post Productions in Toronto.
