Eve’s Band Makes Noise in New Orleans

A New Orleans-based group, Eve’s Lucky Planet (also known as the Lucky Planet Band) is one that displays all the characteristics of Crescent City.

With riff-based rhythms and mixed major and minor tonalities, Eve’s Lucky Planet band is hard to place under one genre of music. The band focuses on writing original music blending African, Latin and Reggae rhythms with the acoustic sound of Folk and Country music seasoned with Jazz piano, guitar, banjo and some “sultry” trumpet.

With a female vocalist and three musicians a part of the supporting cast, the Eve’s Lucky Planet performs upbeat songs such as “Rumba in A” along with tame and powerfully written songs such as “Children”. The band seems influenced by an array of timeless artists such as John Coltrane and Santana while also including reggae beats similar to Bob Marley.

This past Christmas, as six Cabrini students visited New Orleans to participate in a project for the Habitat for Humanity, they were lucky enough to see Eve’s Lucky Planet Band play at a local bar and meet one of the band members, Oliver. “They were awesome and so friendly,” Ashley Cook, junior English and communications major, said.

With original and unique music, Eve’s Lucky Planet Band accomplishes great melodies while sending powerful messages in each of their songs. The band says, “we try to write songs that reflect or question ordinary human experiences and celebrate life on earth”.

Eve’s Lucky Planet will next perform at the Apple Barrel Bar, Thursday, Feb. 7, 2008 at 10:30 p.m. They can be reached at (504) 949-9399. They are also scheduled to perform at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival on Friday, May 2. To learn more, visit luckyplanetband.com, where you can also sample some of their music.
