ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If I were to describe the Charlie Lucas Band, I would have to start by saying it would be like pulling up to the Whataburger drive thru and saying, "Surprise me." I say this because you never know what you’re gonna get – plus, that "box of chocolates" thing was already taken. These boys do it all, from rockin it out, to slowing it down with a waltz that all the chicks seem to dig.

With their new album, Which Way To Turn, the Charlie Lucas Band aims to give you what you need. The title is an upbeat rockin song that makes you want to drive fast and open another beer. Then there's "Tonight," which is a slow waltz that makes you want to find the nearest member of the opposite sex and polish your buckle. Rounding out the sound are a few honkytonkers, an acoustic number that everyone can relate to, and several more tunes that are more of the rockin variety.

The boys of the Charlie Lucas Band are more than just bandmates – they are friends. This really helps the whole badass-music-making process, because this friendship allows musical direction and constructive criticism to be conveyed without feelings getting hurt. These guys are all about friends and family, which lends itself to them being grounded and humble. The underlying theme is "be laid back and just have fun with it."

When they hit the practice room, the only things guaranteed are that there will be cold beer and many different obvious musical influences floating around the room. When these boys "loosen up" as practice begins you might hear anything from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Stone Temple Pilots to Merle Haggard and even some Metallica riffs. If you listen closely to Which Way To Turn – which I highly recommend you do – you will hear all those influences.

Josh Kimich is the band's lead guitar player. He can hold his own against anyone in the industry (and surpass most). The bass player, Elvin "Pooky" Burnett, was a headbanger for 15 years, but has now found his way into the country rock arena. Pooky's long metal roots enhance and help define the Charlie Lucas Band's unique sound. The drummer, Ken Dimick, can do it all. He knows every song imaginable, from 80's rock to today's country to headbangin metal. Finally, we have Charlie Lucas, who is the adhesive that holds these free spirits together. The raspy delivery of his lyrical genius gives him a sound all his own. People ask me who he sounds like, and I always have to tell them, "Really, nobody." In this age of the Nashville dancin chickens or karaoke cowboys, Charlie's novel voice is quite refreshing.

If you take the freespiritedness, the diversity of their influences, and all the overall talent of these guys, and combine them in a #2 wash bucket, you get the Charlie Lucas Band--- a group of mofos that just want to play!!!

Oh, yeah, and then there's me – Chris DuFour. I am the agent-manager-booking agent-road manager-beer fetcher-babysitter and most importantly – fan. I love my job!!!!!
