PumpHouse is a regional touring band based in Richmond, Virginia, that, since 2012, has performed in clubs and musical festivals from Virginia to California, offering soulful originals and its own creative spin on Traditional and Chicago Jump/Swing Blues, R&B mixed with Rock and Roll and beyond.  A diverse and thoroughly entertaining group of 7 experienced musicians devoted to their music, their friendship, and their fans, PumpHouse is fronted by Lutha Lucas, whose musical style has been described as a fusion of Lou Rawls & James Brown. Though he came from a background of singing in a church choir for much of his adult life with no experience in a band, he has become a phenomenal frontman who interacts with the crowds and belts out PumpHouse songs like a blues man or rocker who’s been doing it his entire life.
