Chris Hansen & The Lunch Box Legends

Lunch Box Legends

The Lunch Box Legends provide a great selection of music that has a wide appeal to audiences combining poignant lyrics, toe tapping grooves, and seasoned musicality. Ideal for a sunny festival afternoon, a private house concert, community event or just a feel good night out on the dance floor. You can have a listen here or see our recent video here.

Their album "Compassionate Visitor" released in 2018 features original song writing by Chris Hansen on rhythm guitar & vocals; Blaine Dunaway ( www.blainedunaway.com ) on violin, chin cello & flugelhorn; Steve Ruskin on keyboards and harmonica; Bruce Wing on bass, flute & vocals; Judy Wing vocals; ( www.judyandbruce.com ) and Jordan King on electronic drums.

Collectively the Legends are enjoying the moment and find themselves playing music and song that encompasses original roots, world melodic grooves that will keep your head bopping and toes tapping and classics that will get you on the dance floor. If you enjoy listening to a great mix of original roots, a little blues, zydeco, gypsy groove, latin and all that jazz you will enjoy this group.

What's With the Lunchbox? Each member of the Lunchbox Legends is bringing something a little different to the table. They each have their own influences, styles and abilities, but it's the synergy that gives the music it's distinct and unique musical flavour. The music has its roots in the songwriting of Chris Hansen (acoustic & electric guitar, vocals ) frayed on the edges with Judy Wing's soulful songwriting and vocals ( keyboard, guitar & vocals ) virtuoso Blaine Dunaway ( violin, chin cello, flugelhorn & trumpet ), the creative smooth bass lines of Bruce Wing ( bass, flute, vocals ) and Brian ( Fuzz ) Morisette on percussion. Their music has been described as having strong influences from world travels and life’s journey combined with compassionate honesty and positive messages. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
