The Mike Lucci Band would like to thank Cogan's Deli and Sports Pub for hosting us on Friday Night and Daddyo's Tavern for hosting us on Saturday Night.  

We had two great performances this weekend that had the dance floors filled.

Our performances included the outstanding talents of our friends who sat in with us during our shows.  The fine showmanship and harp playing from Bobby Blackhat, solid hair raising blues keyboard from Frank Brewer, and the sultry tones from saxophonist Chuck Maranzano.

A big shout out to all of our fans and patrons of these fine establishments.  Thank You for supporting live music in the Williamsburg area.   We appreciate all of your kinds words and enthusiasm for our style of the Blues and hope you enjoy the CD's that you all purchased.

Keep track of our future shows at www.mikelucciband.com.  Looking forward to seeing you all soon !

Cool temperatures and rainy conditions did not dampen the enthusiasm or the number of participants for the Connects Federal Credit Union Corporate 4 Miler held Thursday, June 4 in Innsbrook.

We had a great time playing a very upbeat set for all the runners.    It was so fantastic to watch them cheer for us as we played and cheered for them as they ran by.

Runners of all levels participated making for a constant flow of folks passing by our location.   There was no time for breaks as we forged ahead through our song selection and enjoyed watching everyone jog-dance past us.   Yes, Jog-dancing is a very real thing!

Many thanks to Sportsbackers RVA and Connects Federal Credit Union for including us in this year's event.    We'd come back and play for you anytime!

The latest event on our calendar brought us to Manhattan's Deli in Newport News to host a Brews and Blues jam.

There were lots of great musicians that brought in their instruments and their talents.

Old friends like Bobby Blackhat helped keep the action going.    Always nice to share the stage with him.

The crowd enthusiastically embraced and responded to our music.   The Mike Lucci Band was truly well received.   We'll look forward to a return engagement as soon as one can be arranged.

We want to thank everyone that came out and filled up Rose Marie Inn last night (Friday - Mar 6).   It was the first time we'd ever seen the room filled to capacity.    Standing Room Only!   

You guys coming out and supporting us like that is so very much appreciated.    It's what keeps us going and trying to be the most dynamic blues band in the Universe.....

Speaking of the Universe.... The best bar in the Universe (affectionately known to one and all as Rose Marie Inn) did a wonderful job of keeping the food coming out of the kitchen and the drinks coming across the bar.   Special thanks to Noelle for taking such great care of us and all of our friends last night!     Many thanks to Johnny and Mary Woedel for setting it all up.

Be sure to check back frequently on the Facebook page as well as our website (www.mikelucciband.com).   We'll be posting some pictures very soon.    It was such a fun evening we had to capture the action on film (disc).    Look closely.   You might even see yourself dancing to the music.

The Mike Lucci Band announces the retirement of guitarist, vocalist, and song writer Ron Winston.  Ron Winston has decided to retire as guitarist from The Mike Lucci Band as he nurtures a back ailment.  Ron has been an integral part of the band from its inception back in early 2008.  Over the past 7 years, styling on either his Gibson Custom Signature BB King Lucille, Gretsch 5422 or his Gibson SG Standard, Ron has guided us through over 150 gigs, 10 local IBC Competitions and two quarter final performances at the International Blues Competitions in Memphis, Tenn. (2011 and 2013).   Ron is known for his tasteful and powerful leads, flowing rhythms, and down right Chicago style feeling of the blues on guitar and through his voice.

This creativity especially shines in his two original songs featured on our album “All In Good Time”.  Ron is a co-founder of The Mike Lucci Band and has also co-founded Sugar Daddy and the Two Dollar Blues Band.  Ron has been performing on stage with Mike since 1999.   We will miss Ron onstage and all wish him a speedy recovery.

With Ron’s announcement, Mark Saurs has offered to take the permanent role as lead / rhythm guitarist and vocalist for The Mike Lucci Band.  We are honored to have Mark onboard as he has been sitting in with us since Aug 2014.  Mark is well known in the blues community all along the East Coast from north of D.C. to North Carolina.  Mark brings with him over 40 years of musical experience.  Mark was inducted into the Northern Virginia Blues Society Blues Hall Of Fame in 2012. Welcome Aboard Mark !
