Gedeon Luke & The People

June 27, 2016 at 6pm


Vibrant soul music flows through Gedeon Luke’s veins.

Hailing from the streets of Memphis, Gedeon Luke conquered childhood poverty by focusing on music, family and faith. Growing up, Luke was weaned on the gospel-infused sounds of Sly Stone, Curtis Mayfield and Al Green and deeply inspired by the rock ‘n roll passion of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. Together with his nine-person band—The People—Luke brings immense energy and heart to every show, spreading a message of love, peace and soul with the world.

Gedeon Luke is perhaps best known for reaching American Idol semifinals in 2006—even winning over exacting judge Simon Cowell. The band’s latest album, Live Free and Love (2014), is a celebration of funk and positivity. Gedeon Luke & The People have energized audiences at Levitt SteelStacks (2015), Levitt Arlington (2014), and Levitt Shell (2014, 2015).
