Luigi LaCross is an alluring new man about town.....make that, an alluring new band. In November, 2012, Steve Luceno brought together a small group of musicians with the goal of learning each other’s original music. The quartet “clicked” from the first rehearsal, and enjoyed a sold out debut concert at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts Black Box Theater in January, 2013. Perhaps you were there, in which case, you'd like another helping, if not come on down to the Royal and get served.
Luigi LaCross features John Croarkin (flutes, saxophones, harmonica), Drew Gibbs (piano, flute, percussion), Phil Lawson (classical guitar) and Steve Luceno (string bass, percussion, steel string guitar).
The new band performs original pieces by all four members, and has been including pieces by Brazilian composers Hermeto Pascoul and Jovina Santos Neto in their repertoire. The band is in its planning and rehearsing phase of releasing a new CD sometime in 2013.
