Looking for BLUES HISTORY?


Thursday, October 27, 2011

Maybe one of the coolest country crooners to come along in a long time...

You need to watch this guy... Actually you need to listen to him first, then run go snatch up his music, while you can... he's going to be hhhhhhhot.

The Charlie Lucas Band. That's Charlie on the right...

It took me awhile to peg this group... you know that's what music writers do; compare, analyze, dissect. Lucas' voice is a leaner version of Mac Powell's, the Grammy Award winning lead singer for the Christian rock group Third Day. He has been one of my favorite vocalists of all time. The Charlie Lucas Band is a full blown semi metal-rock group, and they could cover ZZ Top or Guns and Roses or Billy Idol, no sweat. The songs, some of them original, are thoughtful, classic, and thank goodness, not all about boozing and chasing booty. But what sets Lucas apart is his amazing countenance.. a confident, friendly smile. When he is on stage, he looks... IS... very comfortable and just damn happy, as he smiles at the audience, at his musicians, at the folks walking by. And soon the people feel themselves smiling back. It's that smile that will take him all the way to the top.

Here just a couple of them entertain the lunch crowd at the Corner Cafe in Navasota.
