2BLU and The Lucky Stiffs-Interview


2BLU and The Lucky Stiffs-Interview


Alabama Music Office.com goes through the door into our studio to interview 2BLU and The Lucky Stiffs. They were in town as headliners for Alabama Blues Project's 6th Annual Evening of Art & Blues. John Scalici sat in for James Dudley on the drum kit that night. In the title I listed a song "Walk In Peace." That song is not included in this video. Scroll down to the previous post. I posted "Walk In Peace" as it was performed at the Alabama Blues Project's 6th Annual Evening of Art & Blues. Enjoy and listen to the song's message.

From a former interview:
What's The Music Like In General?
"We call it a premium blend of blues, rock, funk and gospel. In the context of a show, we perform in three formats. Acoustic duo or trio, unplugged four piece and five piece electric band. When performing acoustically, the tunes are closer to a Delta Blues style with original twists added.
When performing "electrified" we produce a blend of blues, funk and rock. We consider ourselves influenced by many artists. To name a few; Little Feat, Stevie Ray, reverend Gary Davis, Elmore Jones, Lowell Fulson and of course Ray Charles. Our tunes are mostly original with some adaptations and covers of our liking thrown in."
