Jesse Luke’s extensive musical experience and training sets him on a pedestal of global proportions that is both heard and felt when his fingers touch the keys of a piano.
Jesse carries with him over thirty five years’ experience in professional entertainment in the US, Canada, Europe, and Asia; having performed for all ages, various Heads of State, and two US Presidents.
His classical training includes six years under Professor Florence Place, of Juliard School of Music; the Chicago Symphony; and graduate of USASOM, the US Army School of Music.
Much of his professional experience stems from having performed with numerous groups and associations, including: pianist in a house band in South Korea for one year; as Piano Bar Pianist, Band Leader, and Entertainment Director in Virginia for two years; as pianist in the US Army Band in Chicago, Virginia, and Korea for four years; and as producer, musician, and magician for ‘The Jesse Luke Show’ for Elder Care Facilities for eighteen years.

In addition to being musically gifted, Jesse Luke is a master magician. He can ‘wow’ any crowd with his interactive trickery and sleight of hand. Having apprenticed for five years with ‘The Great Turbini,’ Jesse now delivers a show perfect for any kind of gathering.
