Dejehan “Luckystickz” Hamilton is an accomplished entertainer, drummer, and one of the premier steelpan-ists in Canada. Luckystickz is of Jamaican and Trinidadian decent, born in Hamilton, Ontario. A steelpan player for nine years, he began his musical journey while playing with the Hamilton Youth Steel Orchestra.  He has had the opportunity to perform internationally and with music legends such as Harry Belafonte.

Music has given him the opportunity to travel to Trinidad & Tobago, Jamaica, Barbados, Puerto Rico, Singapore, the United States, and different parts of Canada. When Luckystickz is not performing he uses motivational speaking as an outreach vehicle to engage youth in a proactive manner.

Luckystickz is currently enrolled at Berklee College of Music. He has been a pioneer for Canadian steelpan artists by being the first Canadian on scholarship to attend Berklee for steel pan.
