When a like-minded attachment of musical aficionados’ grace the stage the result speaks for itself. To encapsulate a genre of music that appeals to all generations is a winning formula effortlessly perfected by the band ‘Lucky Seven’.
What started as a predominantly swing band doing Sinatra, Crosby, Martin and Prima standard tunes or the more contemporary Neo Swing, Royal Crown Review, they were quick to expand their repertoire with strains of jazz, roots rock n’ roll and rockabilly. Their wide appeal is evident and Lucky Seven have all ages and any joint jumping.
A driving rhythm section coupled with hostile horns blend together suitably with full-size vocals. Comprising vocals, drums, upright bass, guitar, trumpet, alto saxophone, tenor saxophone and baritone saxophone. Singularly they are accomplished musicians but together they are a force to be reckoned with.
But what’s more is their appearance. Complimentary to the music is their garb ‘a la gangster’. Just like Elliot Ness in looks, musically these cats are untouchable, right down to the bullet holes in the bass, bearing no criticism of musicianship, more-so vending sly hootch and dancing girls perchance?
Lucky Seven’s first performance saw support for Adelaide rockabilly outfit ‘The Saucermen’ at the ‘Jade Monkey’ nightclub in 2004. This historic venue was the site of the first Balfours bakery. The punters stood in awe and treated to a polished performance by this new swing outfit, dare I say, far from half-baked.
In 2005 the guys won a band competition held by the Adelaide Casino which saw them perform in Darwin in 2006. A regular weekly gig at Adelaide Casino has confirmed them as the longest performing resident band there. Drawing a healthy crowd in the Thursday Swing Lounge. The swingsters recorded a live album there in 2007 with artwork by close friend and tattoo artist, Gen Stanfield.
After mastering the swing standards the boys put pen to paper and the result is original tunes reminiscent of the genre. A testament of their abilities and eagerly received by their disciples.
Having conquered the nightspots of North Terrace Adelaide, they set their sights on the rest of Australia. Now in 2013, Lucky Seven are seasoned travelers interstate and abroad.
So as these swingin’ hip cats grab hold of the musical pendulum and swing with it, you can be assured of an entertaining evening with ‘Lucky Seven’.
