Americana group Lucero will take over the Backyard Stage at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre with special guest Jade Jackson on Wednesday, February 26, 2020.
It’s been two decades since original members Ben Nichols, Brian Venable, Roy Berry, and John C. Stubblefield (keyboardist Rick Steff joined in 2006) started playing shows in their hometown of Memphis. Their first show was April 13, 1998 at a warehouse space across the street from what is now the National Civil Rights Museum, the infamous Lorraine Motel where Martin Luther King Jr. was shot.
The band’s ninth studio album, “Among the Ghosts”, is their first for noted Nashville indie label Thirty Tigers. Recorded primarily live as a five-piece, “Among the Ghosts” eschews the Stax-inspired horns and Jerry Lee Lewis-style boogie piano featured on some of the band’s past recordings for a streamlined rock & roll sound that pays homage to their seminal influences as it seeks to push that legacy into the future. For a band who carried the torch of the alt-country movement back in the 90’s and helped pave the way for what is now called Americana, Lucero have re-discovered what inspired them in the first place.
