CD release party at Club Fox for The Lucky Losers new Greaseland produced album “Blind Spot.” Special guests include Laura Chavez (listed as Guitar Player Magazine’s “Top 50 Sensational Female Guitarists”) and 2016 “Keeping the Blues Alive” award winner Kid Andersen. “Blind Spot” is an all original album that crosses genres from roots and blues to R&B and soul. Their signature sound is based on gorgeous vocal harmonies, stellar harmonica playing, and funky rhythms. The Lucky Losers, San Francisco’s finest male/female duet fronted six-piece band, deliver an inventive, hypnotic spin on 60’s blues and roots music. Cathy Lemons and Phil Berkowitz breathe new life into American songwriting tradition and the vanishing art of duet singing. The stark contrast between Lemons’ velvet voice with a gritty edge and Berkowitz’ elegant tenor makes for an electrifying performance. Their first album, “A Winning Hand” received national attention from critics and made The Roots Music Report’s “Top 50 Blues Albums of 2015.” Their second album, “In Any Town,” made Making a Scene’s “Top Independent Blues Albums of 2016” list plus the indie king nominated them for two Independent Blues Awards. They have been nominated for “Best Traditional Album / 2015,” “Best Contemporary Album /2016” and “Best Harmonica Player/ 2016” by Blues 411. Critics from Rolling Stone to Living Blues have given these two veterans a huge thumbs up. The Lucky Losers are: Cathy Lemons/vocals, Phil Berkowitz, vocals/harmonica, Ian Lamson/guitar, Chris Burns/ keys, Endre Tarczy/bass, and Robi Bean/drums.
