Known for their high energy, horn-driven sound that melds jazz, funk, rock, and soul, Huntertones add depth and contrast to their live sets by shifting from a dynamic six-piece ensemble to a trio featuring saxophone, sousaphone, and beat-boxing, keeping their listeners’ eyes and ears open at every turn.
Huntertones formed in Columbus, Ohio at The Ohio State University and hosted their first shows at a house on Hunter Avenue. Their first Midwest tour was sponsored by the Jazz Arts Group. Since relocating to New York City, Huntertones have released two albums, and toured North and South America, Europe and Africa. Individually, members of Huntertones have compiled a diverse resume of collaborations with top artists in pop, jazz, soul, and musical theater. This includes work with Jon Batiste and Stay Human, O.A.R., Snarky Puppy, Stevie Wonder, Andy Grammer, Ed Sheeran, Allen Stone, Gary Clark Jr., Phillip Phillips, We Banjo 3, Umphrey’s McGee, Vulfpeck, and others. They return to where it all started, with an extended residency, arranged by the Jazz Arts Group, in Columbus area schools culminating in a performance at the Lincoln Theatre.
This presentation is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment for the arts, with additional contributions from the Ohio Arts Council and the Crane Group.
