Hunter & the Gators formed in 1991. This group from Jackson, Mississippi, plays a wide variety of music ranging from the fifties to the present. They can perform from a trio to a 6-piece band, with instrumentation including keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, and saxophone, as well as a female vocalist.
Their show is made up of Rock, Pop, Soul, Motown, Alternative, Country, and Blues covers. The band’s strongest appeal is in its vocal presentation, with lots of rich harmony. In 2011, Hunter & the Gators received a Jackson Music Award for “Pop Group of the Year” and were finalists for BEST COVER BAND by “Best of Jackson” in 2013, 2016, and 2018.
The Gators’ show consists of an elaborate light show with multi-colored spots, smoke machines, and other effects. Also included in the show (if requested) are several costume changes, including Elvis, Mick Jagger, and an 80’s hair band costume. The Gators specialize in dance music and promise a very lively show, getting members of the audience involved and keeping them on their feet.
