In 2004 seven of the coolest cats in the music business banded together to form Lucky Seven. These seven misfits combine cool jazz licks with a raw rockabilly style rhythm you need to hear. A driving rhythm section coupled with hostile horns blend together suitably with full-size vocals. Comprising vocals, drums, double bass, guitar, trumpet, alto, tenor and baritone saxophone. Singularly they are accomplished muso's but together they are a force to be reckoned with. But what's more is their appearance. Complementary 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' 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. A weekly gig at Adelaide Casino confirmed them as the longest performing resident band there. Drawing a healthy crowd in the Balcony Bar of mostly non-gamblers. The swingsters recorded a live album there in 2007 with artwork by close friend and tattoo artist, Gen Stanfield. "The band line up has changed somewhat over the years but one thing for sure is every member has brought something unique to the group" says the boys. After mastering the swing standards the boys have put pen to paper and the result is original tunes that are reminiscent of the genre. A testament of their abilities and eagerly received by their disciples. Having conquered the nightspots of Adelaide they set their sites on Australia. In 2017 Lucky Seven are seasoned travellers, interstate and abroad, wowing crowds with their sound and stage presence. So as these swingin' hepcats grab hold of the musical pendulum and swing with it, you can be guaranteed of an entertaining experience with 'Lucky Seven'.

Reviews

Musically, it was all smooth sailing with the aforementioned 1970s TV show theme, brassy dashes of Hawaii Five-0, a bopping My Boy Lollipop (with scintillating sax solo), tap-dancing on Beyond the Sea and some disco to Rock the Boat … despite the looming threat of a Celine Dion number. Hans and Lucky Seven may just be two ships that passed in the night — but fortunately, everyone was on-board for this uproarious naval assault on the senses. Hans & Lucky Seven’s Loveboat!
