 LUCKY PETERSON with special electric solo set by Carlos Guitarlos

 A very special thank you to two very inspiring artists who gave our SoCal Blues fans a fantastic night of Blues.

   Lucky Peterson played his first gig at age three.  By the time he was five, he had already recorded his first single, produced by none other than the legendary Willie Dixon.  Before Lucky turned six, his career had been propelled into the national spotlight with television appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show, The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and even What's My Line?





As a child prodigy, Lucky was somewhat of a novelty act.  Now he is a true blues veteran.  over the last three decades, Lucky has played to audiences all over the world, dazzling both fans and critics with his multi-instrumental talents (he plays keyboards, guitar, bass, drums and trumpet), his soulful vocal style and his youthful approach to the blues.

Showcasing Carlos's stinging, fluid fretwork, live-in vocals, and uncanny ability to write original songs in a wide variety of classic styles, the album made Rolling Stone Magazine's "Top Albums of 2003" and it was swiftly picked up for national distribution, a fact that was covered by Billboard Magazine, who described his re-emergence as "one of the most surprising music stories of the year."
