Based in Portsmouth, Virginia, Lucky 757 are a modern surf band, paying homage to the pioneers of early rock and roll, and rockabilly from the 50s and 60s. They take their inspiration from the likes of Dick Dale, Carl Perkins, Chuck Berry, and Gene Vincent.
Forming in 2014, the core songwriting team comprises father/son duo, Danny and Cory, on rhythm guitar and backing vocals, and lead vocals and lead guitar respectively. The rest of the quartet is made up of Sam Haga on upright bass, electric bass, and backing vocals, and Ange Lopez on drums, percussion, and further backing vocals. Additionally Sam produces their music.
Lucky 757 (the number denotes the Portsmouth area code), have toured their high energy and feel good music all over Virginia and down the coast. Their latest track, ‘Spanish Shore’, from their latest album, ‘Lonesome Lagoon’, released July 27, reminds us of the likes of Jan and Dean, and The Surfaris, with its steel guitar rockabilly rhythms.
