Celebrate 50 years of funky Lucky blues!

Legendary American Bluesman Lucky Peterson, master of the blues guitar and the Hammond B3, celebrates his 50th Anniversary of performing professionally this year. He was born in Buffalo, NY in 1964, the son of James Peterson, a renowned blues guitarist and owner of The Governor’s Inn, a popular roadhouse club in the city and regular stop for some of the most famous bluesmen of the day. With all of the incredible talent and music going through the club, Little Lucky Peterson, as they called him then, learned very early in his life that his true calling was music, and in particular the Blues!

By the age of three, Little Lucky Peterson gave his first concert and, instead of going out and playing with the other children, was hanging around the club learning from and starting to play with the numerous artists that passed through. One of the top artists of the day – Willie Dixon recognised his talent and produced Lucky’s first album when he was only five years old. “Our Future” released on the label “Today/Perception Records”.

Invitations immediately started to pour in for him to perform live on national TV from such major television programmes such as: “The Ed Sullivan Show”, “The Tonight show” and “What’s my line” With this first album Little Lucky managed to reach out and grab the attention of the whole country with a hit song written for him by his father “1-2-3-4” a cover version of James Browne’s big hit “Please, Please, Please”. The rest, as they say, is history!

In his teenage years Lucky played guitar and keyboards, touring and recording with such notable artists as: Etta James, Bobby “Blue” Bland, Little Milton, Otis Rush, Kenny Neil and others. He has always been a big hit with audiences even when

In the early 90s, Lucky started to record his own albums on such prestigious labels as; Alligator Records, Verve, Gitane, Universal, Dreyfus, JSP Records, and others and has since spent his years touring extensively – worldwide – with his group – The Organization – playing his own original style of contemporary blues, fusing soul, R&B, gospel and rock and roll.

In March 2018, Lucky Peterson was nominated alongside, Taj Mahal, Keb Mo and Robert Cray, by JAZZ FM in the UK for the year’s “Best Blues Act” award.

This latest show features a talented singer from Texas, who is also Lucky Peterson’s wife, – Tamara Tramell – she performs a fascinating mix of southern soul and modern R&B which manages to also combine both tough bluesy edges and a pop sassiness – a truly unique artist!
