TVD Video Premiere: Lucky 757, “Memphis Sun”

Lucky 757 are the genuine article when in comes to modern-day rockabilly, tipping their hat to the past pioneers of the genre while pushing the retro sound forward with a combo of chops, passion, and innovation.

The band has maintained a relentless show schedule and consistent artistic output, becoming a prominent fixture and sought after live act around their home state of Virginia. But they journeyed away from their stomping grounds to record their latest record, making a pilgrimage to Sun Studios in Memphis in order to insure their tracks were bursting with that vintage rockabilly flavor.

Their insanely cool album cover shows the quintet in a moment of reprieve from what I can only imagine to be an all night session in the legendary cramped room that once housed the burgeoning talents of Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Roy Orbison.

What’s equally as cool, is that the core of the Lucky 757 is made up of a father/son duo who clearly vibe on the same kind of rhythms. The dad writes the cagey lyrics and the son belts them out in such a nonchalant fashion, it’s hard to believe he knew the tape was rolling, let alone the camera which captured the whole session. The joyful, rowdy, and downright delightful video is a perfect companion piece for the band’s new 3-song EP “Memphis Sun” which arrives in stores on May 4th.
