Lucky Peterson
Born Judge Kenneth Peterson in Buffalo, NY, Lucky was literally birthed and raised in blues clubs. His father, blues vocalist/guitarist James Peterson, owned, operated and lived atop the Governor's Inn, a then popular blues nightclub. At age 3, Lucky learned to play drums. He was also taught some techniques on Hammond B-3 organ from the incomparable Jimmy Smith. He acquired piano and guitar from his father's band. By age 5, Lucky was nationally recognized as a child prodigy of music. Immortal bluesman Willie Dixon took young Peterson under his tutelage and produced an album and had a hit single, "1, 2, 3, 4". At this tender age, he made television appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show, The Tonight Show, The David Frost Show and What's My Line.

Currently signed to Verve Records, Peterson's latest release LIFE TIME is his greatest to date.
