Chicago’s Reader raved, "His musicianship is unassailable…a combination of sleek-handed dexterity and imagination…a happy marriage of blues authenticity and foot-pleasing danceability.

Lucky Peterson is one of the most dangerous triple threat working musicians of today’s blues circuit. Nobody would refute his reputation as one of the preeminent performers of the modern era. Being a searing lead guitarist, a fantastic organist, and a first-rate vocalist; it’s no wonder how he keeps wowing audiences around the world.

Lucky is considered to be in his prime-rich in roots but performing in the present. But that's just what one would expect from an artist with Peterson's resumé. Peterson’s career began when he was just a child. Peterson was exposed to music at a young age due impart to his father who ran one of the area’s most renowned blues clubs in Buffalo, NY, The Governor's Inn.

At the age of three, Lucky played his first ever concert and by the time he was five, Lucky was working with Willie Dixon. Dixon produced Peterson's first record, and the R&B hit "1-2-3-4." As a result of this musical pairing, television appearances were inevitable with appearances on The Tonight Show, The Ed Sullivan Show, and What's My Line.

As a teenager Lucky attended Buffalo Academy of Performing Arts before joining in the bands of Etta James and Otis Rush. One of the most versatile players working in the blues, Peterson has since performed with a long list of greats, including B.B. King and Albert Collins. His 1993 Verve debut I'm Ready announced the arrival of a new force in the blues, while his 1996 collaboration with the legendary Mavis Staples saw him displaying his gospel chops and influences.

His demeanor of giving his all and leaving nothing behind has been wowing audiences and gaining him recognition amongst some of the top blues performers of today.
