The Nick Moss Band returns to the Hook & Ladder to celebrate the release of their new Alligator Records album Lucky Guy!. Special guest, Texas guitar legend Anson Funderburgh will also be in town to join in with Nick and bandmates on the festivities.
Lucky Guy! is the rough & ready new release from one of today’s most celebrated blues ensembles, The Nick Moss Band. Lucky Guy! comes out charging with a head full of creative steam and house-rockin’ abandon; delivering hard-hitting heaps of Louisiana swamp-pop, West Coast blues, New Orleans funk and electrifying proto-rock’n’roll with equal parts: authority and class. Special guest, Texas guitar legend Anson Funderburgh.
Chicago blues guitar hero and vocalist Nick Moss forms the nucleus of one of today’s most celebrated blues bands. Propelled by the band’s telepathic rhythm section, driving keyboards and its Blues Music Award-winning leader, Lucky Guy! comes out charging with a head full of creative steam, intensity and houserockin’ abandon. Featuring their own fresh spin on the classic Chicago blues sound, Lucky Guy! also finds the band mixing in helpings of Louisiana swamp pop, West Coast blues, New Orleans funk and energized proto-rock and roll with equal authority and style.
With 14 new originals and one cover, Lucky Guy! moves effortlessly from the rollicking title track to the potent shout-out to Chicago, 312 Blood, to the truth-telling slow blues, Sanctified, Holy And Hateful (featuring some of Moss’ most expressive vocals and extraordinary, every-note-matters guitar work). The album closes with The Comet, an emotional tribute to their close friend, bluesman Mike Ledbetter with “Monster” Mike Welch guesting on guitar.
