Introducing The Luckys Formerly known as “Jill’s Knight Out”, long time friends and bandmates Jill Knight, Rob Strom, Pam Delgado and Jeri Jones were a Central Coast favorite for many years. Voted Best Band for 3 years running in the New Times Arts and Entertainment Magazine, the group played up and down the Central Coast of California and regularly at some of LA’s most famous venues. In the late nineties the four moved on with separate musical journeys. Pam and Jeri co-founded the popular Bay Area band “Blame Sally’ which later included Rob. Jill continued her solo songwriting career winning numerous awards and placing her music in film. The four remained friends and always enjoyed the opportunity to play together when paths would cross at various festivals and venues. They reunited for a show at Berkeley’s premier music hall, “The Freight and Salvage” in August of 2015 and had such overwhelming response that they knew they needed to take the next step and commit. Something unique and magical happens when these four energies coalesce that cannot be reproduced in any other way, shape or form. Songs, strings and voices soar, organic and true…like a homecoming, a soul circle now complete. The Luckys are lucky and can’t wait to share this ineffable magic with you! Press Quotes/The Luckys …It was clear that the ensemble had a great amount of fun playing with one another, and that they take the music seriously. Knight played with Delgado, {Strom} and Jones … well before Blame Sally went on to wide acclaim, and they seemed to have picked up where they left off. The chemistry and camaraderie between the artists was palpable. No Depression Magazine, show review (Freight and Salvage Berkeley, CA) August 2015 Press Quotes/Jill Knight: “Its hard to say which is better-the song or the way Jill Knight sings it.” Performing Songwriter Magazine. “Few songwriters seem to have the self-assurance that this singer possesses…Knight approaches her music with an unadorned intensity, her songs pack an emotional punch rich in the details of everyday experiences… this is first rate, high quality music” Dirty Linen. Press Quotes/Blame Sally: “Their live performances are more than just a musical journey, as they banter back and forth with each other in between songs as only true friends can do, making for a very entertaining evening.” Sacramento Press “The band’s heavy instrumentation has drawn comparisons to Fleetwood Mac, while the rich harmonies have been compared to everyone from the Indigo Girls to Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.” H-P Features “Blame Sally broke the mold. In a music scene where youth still rules even as record company budgets shrink, this California quartet of middle-aged female rockers landed a five-year, three-album contract…Boston Herald
