Lucero books Luke Hunsicker benefit show

Lucero frontman took some time yesterday afternoon to personally announce a benefit show in Little Rock to help raise money for American Princes bassist Luke Hunsicker’s medical expenses.

Hunsicker recently underwent surgery to remove a benign brain tumor but lacks health insurance.

“If you can come out to the Rev Room in Little Rock on January 9th, all the money we raise is going to help with his bills,” announced Nichols from the Lucero website. “We booked this show last minute due to the circumstances, so tell everyone you know and come out if you can.”

American Princes are a Fayetteville favorite and were scheduled to perform at Smoke and Barrel Tavern on December 19th but had to cancel due to a seizure that Hunsicker suffered earlier which was presumably a result of complications caused by the brain tumor.

If you can’t make it to the Rev Room on January 9th in support, Luke’s family has recently set up a donation webpage for anyone who wants to help out with the expenses.
