Luke’s current band is Big Outside. They play all-original global groove music, rooted in reggae, afropop and funk. Their debut album, released in 2015, is called Planetary.
Happy Savage played in the Seattle area from 1996 to 2004, with funked-up blues, rock, reggae, and world beat dance grooves, and jams that boldly go where no jam has gone before. The Happy Savage album Treehugger was released in 2000.
