The Lucky Losers at Redwood Cafe

Fri, September 7, 2018, 8:30 pm - 11:30 pm

Danger meets sophistication in the soulful music of The Lucky Losers, San Francisco’s premiere male/female duet fronted band. Accompanied by a dynamic four-piece ensemble, veteran Bay Area blues singer Cathy Lemons and top-flight harmonica player/vocalist Phil Berkowitz deliver a truly signature sound, layering elements of Stax/Volt styled R&B, electric Americana, and psychedelic rock atop a Chicago blues foundation. Cathy Lemons and Phil Berkowitz breathe new life into American songwriting tradition and the vanishing art of duet singing. The Lucky Losers May, 2018 release “Blind Spot” has been on the Roots Music Report’s “Top 50 Blues Album Chart” for 17 weeks (4 weeks/ Top 10), and the RMR “Contemporary Blues Album Chart” for 18 weeks (13 weeks/ Top 10). They were nominated for “Best Blues/Soul Artist of 2018,” “Best Blues/Soul Album of 2018,” and “Best Blues/Soul/R&B Song of 2018” by The Independent Blues Awards. Critics from all over the world have hailed “Blind Spot” as a great album. In the Fall of 2018, The Lucky Losers embark on their 6th national tour.

Also featuring guitarist Ian Lamson (Elvin Bishop), veteran drummer, Gary Silva (Volker Strifler), and bassist Endre Tarczy (Anthony Paule Soul Orchestra).

“California’s Cathy Lemons sounds genuinely wise, gritty, tender, wounded, and flirtatious, sometimes all at once. Fortunate to have harmonica champ as her partner in songwriting and singing … a program of smart, likeable originals, that sport winning riffs. Refreshingly mixing rock, blues, R&B, soul, and a dash of country, The Losers lean on technique and spirit equally.”
