LuxDeluxe is a good-time rock&roll band of three cousins and two friends from Northampton, Massachusetts. The band grooves like the stones, they blow people away with their old-fashioned chops and get the crowd singing along to infectious hooks. Singer Ned King’s huge voice and Jagger-like appeal creates a spectacle rarely seen since the heyday of rock&roll.
They’ve shared the stage with Deer Tick, Rubblebucket, and NRBQ, warmed up a crowd of over 10,000 for Bernie Sanders, and been named a band to watch for by Pitchfork. The band released its second album, “It’s a Girl,” last year, with the song “So Far Away” being named as Song of the Year by tastemaker radio station The River 93.9. Most recently, LuxDeluxe released a one-shot visual EP, “Midnight Snack.” Their third full-length album, “Let’s Do Lunch,” which was recorded entirely on a four-track cassette machine, was released July 2017 on Old Flame Records.
