Band: The Lucky Losers
Date: Friday, Nov. 6 at 9 p.m.
Venue: The Blues Tavern, 2818 Government Blvd.www.bluestavern.com
The Lucky Losers is a veritable blues supergroup. San Francisco blues notables Cathy Lemons and Phil Berkowitz serve as the band’s foundation. Lemons has been likened to a female Howlin’ Wolf. This blues diva has lent her chops to legends such as Stevie Ray Vaughn and John Lee Hooker. For almost two decades, Berkowitz has spread his versatile harmonica throughout the blues world. Bluesmen such as Sean Carney and Duke Roubillard have recruited him.
The Lucky Losers will perform music from their latest release, “A Winning Hand.” The band accompanied blues guitarist Kid Andersen (Charlie Musselwhite) into his Greaseland Studios, where Andersen added his skilled chops to the mix. The Lucky Losers explore the breadth of the genre on the album, from the grooving “Change of Heart” to bouncing “Baby You Got What It Takes.
