ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Music critics have had a field day trying to describe Lucky 7's music, dubbing it Cajun rockabilly, a Zydeco Rockpile, The Blasters with a squeezebox, and a New York mix of Zydeco and roadhouse rock with a Latino flavor. Just about the only certainty is that no two-or three-word label fully encompasses the range of the band's musical gumbo. By drawing from Elvis-era Rock’n’Roll, Cajun, Zydeco, delta blues, classic country, and even Latino salsa plus Tex-Mex, this New York based quintet has challenged the descriptive talents of the music press, while at the same time earning its praise.
Although Lucky 7 are Big Apple based, their music wins listeners across the heartland, as Austin American-Statesman critic Michael Point observed at a Texas show, “The group's seamless set was solid and substantial, full of prime party-time dance music underpinned by a resilient rhythmic thrust that pushed and pulled the music in consistently interesting directions."
Lucky 7's founder and leader is accordionist-keyboard player-singer- songwriter Kenny Margolis, www.kennymargolis.com, an ex-member of Mink Deville, who's also toured with and appeared on albums by Cracker, The Smithereens, Freedy Johnston, and The Silos among others. The Roues brothers, Billy (guitar/mandolin/vocals) and Steven (standup bass/harmonica) have brought their songwriting and experience producing, writing, playing and recording with roots artists as diverse as Jo-El Sonnier, John Lee Hooker, Carl Perkins, Lonnie Mack, Lenny Kaye, Wayne Kramer and Stax & Muscle Shoals soul greats Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham. Percussionist, Boris Kinberg has played with Mink DeVille and Robert Gordon. Rounding out the band is drummer Bill Rankin.
After honing its style in sweaty New York clubs, Lucky 7 won favor on a series of European and Canadian tours earning praise as "a heavenly party band" (Sweden's Expressen) and "pure fun!" (Germany's Musick Szene). Toronto's Now said, "No doubt about it, New York's Lucky 7 is among the most fun, freewheeling live acts going." An awesome show at the Montreal International Jazz Festival won over thousands of new fans.
Several songs from the band's repertoire have landed in feature films and also on compilation albums including the Margolis/Roues instrumental, "Holiday Depression” which was in the soundtrack to one of James Gandolfini's first movies, "Italian Movie". It was also released as part of a Swedish compilation called "Rockin' At The Barn" on Dusty Records (1999). Most recently their cover versions of Dave Alvin’s “So Long Baby Goodbye” and Bruce Springsteen’s “Valentine’s Day” were included on highly acclaimed tribute CD’s to their authors. (Blastered: A Tribute to The Blasters on Runwild Records and Light Of Day: A Tribute To Bruce Springsteen on Schoolhouse Records).
Lucky 7 is back with a vengeance, playing their greasy, Southern-fried-with a side of salsa music. Kenny Margolis says he doesn't mind the southern comparison. "A lot of our music does have roots in the South," he admits. "But growing up in New York City, we have interpreted it differently than a Southern band would. Sort of like the British Invasion bands of the Sixties like The Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds, and Cream interpreting Chicago blues."

What the critics say about Lucky 7’s recordings:
Rolling Stone's John Swenson gave their second album, "Feed The Snake," three and a half stars, and noted, "Though the group is made up of New York area musicians, its rhythmically diverse renditions of Gulf Coast roots rock are more appropriate to a Texas band."
Jon Pareles of The New York Times dubbed the debut Lucky 7 EP "a stomping hybrid of garage and Cajun dance tunes." The out of print vinyl fetches upwards of $100.00 on the Japanese collectors market.
CMJ New Music Report, reviewing the first Lucky 7 album, "Get Lucky," said, "By assimilating so many styles and tastefully handling all of them, "Get Lucky" makes for enjoyable listening, track for track and can rival any DJ who would have to use at least six different records to string together a set this good."
Kevin O’Hare’s online “Playback” review (8-31-03) of the Light of Day: Tribute to Bruce Springsteen CD says, “… some of the best moments on the set are those that key in on The Boss' lesser-known works.” Mentioning, “… the alt-country cover of "Valentine's Day," by Lucky 7, a New York based quintet that sounds like they spent plenty of time roaming the heartland.”
'One Way Track' by LUCKY 7 reviewed by Jamey Garner; “LUCKY 7 is a New York City-based band whose new album is deliciously steeped in a hillbilly-zydeco-country-rock-and-roll gumbo. With a sack full of original tunes and a couple covers, their newest release on Deluge Records, "One Way Track" is guaranteed to transport you to the bayou and back…… Do yourself a favor. Get a copy of this CD and play it at your next party. It is flat out awesome.”

These guys are the real deal!
There have been a number of lineup changes since this recording and if you see them live the guys are better than ever. This CD is a classic from the opening title track to the last notes of Tomorrow Night! Buy it today!!!!!

Who thought an accordion could rock? Anyone who's heard Cracker play in the last few years! Kenny Margolis, the lead singer & accordion player of Lucky 7, has provided amazing accordion & keyboards for Cracker as well. This Lucky 7 album is a great collection of rock-accordion music with a real "feel-good" sound reminiscent of some of the classic rock sounds of the 50s as well as a Cajun feel…a folksy, acoustic, yet rock flavor (with a full complement of rock band instruments--guitar, drums, keyboard, bass--but also horns!). Very happy music (some of the songs are also sly & slinky!). It reminds me of being at a summer park under a canopy, having a picnic while listening to great, groovin' music. I love this album!
