Major contributors to the burgeoning Dallas reggae scene, Bum lucky brings together a diverse sound of instruments with gravel voiced songs of love, social commentary and justice, and a rhythm that forces the crowd to move.
A uniquely Texan band, Bum Lucky has never been content with lyrics from a bubble gum soaked 1950s jukebox to throw together ballads of forlorn obsession with past infatuations. Their identity as a reggae band goes far beyond a simple syncopated guitar riff.
While solidly within the reggae genre, Bum Lucky draws from punk, rock, blues, and a special blend of DUB with a strong dash of irreverence. Hard working, always performing Bum Lucky refuses to become stagnant. They are always evolving to make their music and their shows better, interacting with the audience to create an exhilarating experience.
Bum Lucky has Toured with Groundation, Katchafire, and Fortunate Youth just to name a few. They have also helped build the texas reggae scene playing with The Wailers, Tribal Seed, Seedless , Stick Figure, The Expendables, The Movement, New Kingston, Mishka, Natural Vibrations, The Green, and many other nationally touring acts.
Bum Luck anticipates releasing their second album in the spring of 2016.
