The Hurricane Hunters are a New Orleans founded rock band by Tommy MacLuckie (vocal, guitar) in 1999 named after the Air Force Reserve 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, MS. MacLuckie joined Grayson Capps And The Stumpknockers and recorded on Grayson's first album in 2004. The Hurricane Hunters played gigs every few months between 2001 and 2005 in SE Louisiana, LA. The Hurricane Hunters were put on hold after Hurricane Katrina and while the Stumpknockers toured Europe and the US and recorded three more LPs. MacLuckie left the Stumpknockers in 2009.
In 2010 MacLuckie co-founded OzzyCash with Brian 'Bicycle' Jones and with Reid Cumberland (drums) and Jacob Taylor (bass), played shows in SE Louisiana and Mississippi and toured through Louisiana, Arkansas and Texas. They also recorded an album. In 2013 OzzyCash broke up. MacLuckie, Cumberland and Taylor got The Hurricane Hunters back up in late 2014. With family health issues taking priority they only played one show in 2014. In 2015 more family health issues took precedence after one show was played and a bunch of shows booked were cancelled. They played only 2 shows for the whole year. No gigs were played in 2016.
June of 2016 came the release of the EP, Storm Surge(Counter Clockwise Records), on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon and various streaming services (YouTube, Deezer, Spotify, Tidal, etc). December of 2016 they started working on songs for an LP as well as rehearsing. They've continued working on new songs throughout the spring of 2017 and have played 2 shows at The Beach House in Mandeville, LA in April and May but shut everything down. Tommy's wife died from breast cancer September 16. See About The Band for updates.
