Bio: We started playing music together in November of 2010, with 6 members. We then recorded our 4 track EP "By The Way Your Shadow Looks" in January of 2011 and started performing live in February of 2011. We spent all of 2011 solidifying our line-up, we lost some members, met some people, made some friends, and found new members. In 2011 we played shows non-stop to promote ourselves. As 2012 came around the corner, we established ourselves as an 8-piece band, and then entered Warming Room Studios to record our full length debut album, which is to be released in the Spring of 2012, and it will be titled "Pretty Well Damned". So far, our journey has been very fun, and one day, the world will be saved by The Lucky Jukebox Brigade.


“(On the band's name): Deanna DeLuke, vocalist, ukulele player: "While The Lucky Jukebox Brigade formed in October 2010, the band name was in the works for about a decade. Growing up, I made collages on my bedroom walls, and I used to cut out interesting words from magazines and put them together. I pieced out the phrase 'The Jukebox Rebirth' when I was maybe 14 and just starting guitar lessons, thinking it would make a cool band name someday. "During the summer of 2010 when I was putting up Craigslist ads searching for band mates, I realized that I wasn't just looking for a band, I was looking for an orchestra/brigade, and would be extremely lucky to find the special bunch of people I was hoping was out there. The name then evolved into The Lucky Jukebox Brigade, and we all agreed on it, so it stuck." Tom Keyser - Times Union  Read more:

“With a band that includes multiple vocalists, guitar, bass, banjo, accordion, drum kit, percussion, violin, saw and an array of horns, The Lucky Jukebox Brigade’s scene has been described as a troubadour-led folk circus on a pirate ship raided by gypsies. If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if a bell-voiced Siren of the Tyrrhenian Sea and her admiring, chipped-tooth ancient sailors could—for one modern evening—suspend expected outcomes and gather round in revelry, this is what it would look like. Was I a skeptic at first? For sure. But now I’m fully convinced. I’ve done it, folks. I’ve joined the Brigade. Mishel Filisha - The Examiner  Read the whole article here:
