Born out of Grand Rapids, Michigan, The Luminous is a local favorite as well as a national touring band appearing at various festivals such as Big Ticket Festival, Dirt Fest, and Creation Fest. Bringing back the old-school sounds of punk with a flavor of raw grunge, The Luminous combines positive and purpose driven lyrics with gut punching musical energy.

This upcoming band consists of three young working class musicians with obscene hair dos: Jacob Ritchie on lead vocals and lead guitar; John Harag on bass guitar and backing vocals; and Dan Reitmeyer on drums and percussion.

The Luminous completed their first mastered and self recorded demo in May of 2008 which has been cleverly titled “The Luminous EP”. It consists of 5-tracks out of their catalog of original music and lyrics. While on the road, Jacob, Dan and John continuously collaborate to create new music for a full length album in the future. You can listen to their music on any of The Luminous sites.

The groups loves to hear what you think regardless of whether your opinion is good or bad. Constructive criticism is always appreciated.

The Luminous are musicians with a purpose: to show the people we meet that we care about them. They want to be a friend to you if you need a friend, an ear if you need someone to listen. They are currently working on starting an organization (A Loving Ear, A Subtle Voice) dedicated to helping, and showing love to those in need. Their goal is to listen (first and foremost), give advice if desired, and to have information and ways of contacting other organizations who can help you specifically. The band is looking into organizations who tackle issues such as... depression, teen pregnancy, substance abuse, hunger/poverty, domestic abuse, etc. They are Christians, but don’t let that scare you away. They want nothing more than to talk to you, and help you to the best of their ability. They just want to be your friend.
