The Lucky Doggs

A "kick-ass" Southern blues band with shades and colors of an era gone by. The music is diverse and powerful, fueled by screaming twin guitars, gutsy vocals, and all riding on a velvet blanket of an R&B rhythm section.

The original music ranges from Louisiana rockin' blues, to hard driving Southern Rock, laced with storytelling ballads, and lined with the funk.  Packed full of new music, Johnny and The Band are headed to the studio for a new record.  The New Record will lean further to the Blues side as did the first record " Louisiana Boggie" . Johnny has written quite a bit of Material since " No Pain , No Gain " , and will be cutting at least Two CDs this year . One being Titled , " If You Wanna See A Rainbow , Got To Have a Little Rain" and then the other " Hard Times" , something Johnny is very familiar with.  Don't miss a chance to catch a show!  This is going to be an exciting year , and a long overdue opportunity to record with longtime partner ," Luther Wamble" again , as well as the Enginering expertice of New Keyboardist," Keith Lee" .
