Luke Vajsar

Luke Vajsar was born in Prague, Czech Republic on May 17, 1979. In 1989 he immigrated to Hamilton, Canada with his brother and parents. When given the opportunity to play music at the age of 10 in elementary school, he immediately became interested. Even though he selected bass as his instrument he was given the trombone by his teacher and developed his skills on the instrument to a level where he was an important part in the best of big bands in his city and neighboring regions; winning national and provincial awards through to 1999. Also, he began playing guitar at this time and kept playing till finally he got his hands on a bass at the age of 13

“This guy’s a nose-to-the-grindstone, eyes-to-the-sky kind of musician. The sounds he makes on his lone instrument are astoundingly unique. With one bass, he’s able to compound a musical quality akin to an entire orchestra.” Caitlin Hoffman - www.biggerthanbeyonce.com
