Redlight Sessions, is a six piece band playing compositions inspired by pop music arrangements, Oakland funk, New Orleans feel, and avant-garde innovations.

Redlight Sessions (b. 2005) is a project created by Jakub Zapotoczny and Jeff Luciani. Initially starting off as an organ and drums duo, RLS quickly evolved into a sextet after Jakub and Jeff started hearing wider tonal and arrangement possibilities within their compositions. The band’s debut show at the 2005 SCENE Music Festival in St. Catharines was an immense success but Redlight Sessions had to take a backseat while Jakub and Jeff pursued other projects.

In April 2015, Redlight Sessions was revived with new compositions and a trio of Hamilton’s top horn players to perform at the In The Soil Arts Festival in St. Catharines, Ontario.
