Paul Lundgren Bio

Paul Lundgren

Paul credits his musical abilities to his dad Jim Lundgren who was his mentor and inspiration for his love of  life and music.

Paul's father spent 30 years as our Nation's Chief Naval Band Master. He was also an accomplished jazz percussionist and after retirement spent 10 years with the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra.

Paul started singing and playing drums under his father's instruction at a very early age. He was encouraged to learn jazz as his foundation into rock 'n' roll and rhythm & blues and to always keep an open mind to all genres of music.

Paul and his brother Erik started their first band before they were even teenagers. They surround themselves with other highly skilled artists and offer a broad spectrum of music.

Great entertainment for all types of venues covering many styles of music ranging from smooth jazz, classic rock to today's adult contempory rock radio hits.

This band is perfectly suited for any & all occasions!
