Charlotte’s Lucky Five is composed of Marques Nash on lead vocals and keys, Shago Elizondo on guitar and backing vocals, Jonny Fung on guitar, keys and backing vocals, Andy Morimoto on bass and Jesse Williams on drums… Lucky Five is about thought provoking, timely lyrics with “knock you on your ass vocals, blazing musicianship with intricate weavings and improvisation to create their original sound”. Added in the mix are interpretations of a couple of great covers to stretch and enrich your senses… you’ll find Lucky Fives’ sound to be an amalgam of rock, funk, pop, r&b, and blues. The band has earned high praise for their mind blowing live shows and tight grooves that reach across all social barriers without respect to labels, fads or tired ass categorizing. The band simply lives and loves to play music. They don’t conform or try and imitate what some say “sells” and they sure as fuck don’t compromise!
What people are saying :
"Don't let the boy band look fool you: Lucky Five from Charlotte, NC are a great live band. These kids rock with the honesty of the Busboys and intensity of Fishbone with riffs rivaling Carlos Santana making for an overwhelming wall of energetic sound. By combining funk, metal and prog rock, these youngsters got hooks for the girls and musicianship for the guys. A must see."

“Charlotte - area quintet, Lucky Five's soul licked blues takes cues from classic blues-rock of the late 60's along with jam sentiments of contemporary rockers. Although these youngsters play and sound as if they have been around a hell of a lot longer than a couple of years. With dual guitars, a bopping rhythm section and a thick- voiced singer/keyboardist, Lucky Five's got the chops and the moxie for the long haul”…
