Huntertones
Huntertones
Huntertones is a high energy group founded in Columbus, OH and currently based in Brooklyn, NY. You can expect heavy horn-driven compositions that meld jazz, funk, soul, hip hop, gospel, R&B, and rock to produce a signature sound that resonates with all types of audiences. The band’s mission is simple: create live music on real instruments that will often make you think and always make you move. They met at The Ohio State University and got their start playing house shows at their Hunter Avenue apartment. In addition to covering a wide range of genres, they’re known for the ability to shift from a dynamic six-piece ensemble to an unconventional trio featuring saxophone, sousaphone, and beat-boxing.

The band started 2016 with a month-long tour of North America, South America, and Africa through the American Music Abroad program. They were selected by the U.S. Department of State and the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs to engage international audiences, students, and artists from around the globe. In September, Huntertones will release their second album, ‘Live.’ This record captures the band in it’s element, performing genre-bending music while feeding on the energy of a hometown crowd.
