From The Fringe: Late Night Phantasmagoria with Jack Lukeman

Late Night

Each day this month we are looking at some of the shows, performers and events being championed at the Edinburgh Festival this year by our sister magazine ThreeWeeks.

Today the ‘Late Night Phantasmagoria with Jack Lukeman’ at The Famous Spiegeltent, which is running each night until the end of the month. “It’s difficult for a musician to take me (and the rest of this small, tired crowd) from ready for bed to up and dancing along” notes our reviewer, “but Jack Lukeman has the great voice, high energy, and above all, the stage presence to really warm up an audience”

She goes on: “‘Late Night Phantasmagoria’ is a combination of high-energy blues and soft lullabies, appealing to both the possibilities of an 11pm audience: tipsy and fun, or tired and floppy. He has the versatility for both and makes great song choices, though if pressed I might say that while the more rock-based songs were his natural element, I generally preferred the quieter numbers. But however your evening has gone, Jack Lukeman will provide the perfect nightcap”.
