Watch a performance from the horn-driven Huntertones tomorrow
The Performing Arts Series continues its 25th anniversary with the Huntertones at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 8, in the A. F. Siebert Chapel.
The Huntertones use their instruments to bring people together with fun, imaginative, and fearless music. Using high-energy sounds, the band integrates their style into different genres of music, creating new and unconventional pieces. The band performs mashups of musical pieces from many different artists, including Stevie Wonder, Queen, and Michael Jackson. The Huntertones are highly skilled in many musical instruments, allowing them to shift from a lively six-piece ensemble to a trio featuring a sousaphone, saxophone, and beat-boxing during their performances. After a decade of performing, the Huntertones have toured in over 20 countries worldwide and continue to tour the US and abroad, astounding their audiences and inspiring artists wherever they go.
Dan White (saxophone), Jon Lampley (trumpet), Chris Ott (trombone), Adam DeAscentis (bass), John Hubbell (drums), Josh Hill (guitar), and Justin Stanton (keys) created the Huntertones in Columbus, Ohio and are currently based in Brooklyn, N.Y. The Huntertones’ latest release, “Time to Play,” is a must-hear for all music enjoyers. Each song on the album is explosive and soulful, convincing their listeners to smile and dance along with the beat.
The band has collaborated with many artists over the years, including Cory Wong, Louis Cato, and Melissa McMillan. Despite producing music and touring internationally, the band still finds time to share music and teach students of all ages, giving over 200 master classes around the world over the past seven years. Their programs vary from elementary school to college, focusing on creative process, teamwork, and discipline, teaching these skills for lifelong learning while also making students feel more comfortable with the performing arts and the spotlights that follow.
