Special Recording Session with Quincy Jones in Los Angeles.
Lucy and Nick were called to L.A. to record their own original song, "Even When You Forget" with Quincy Jones.  Their song, written for the Keep Memory Alive Foundation for Alzheimer's Research, is a powerfully touching and emotional story of a child and a father.  Quincy is an amazingly accomplished musician and producer who is the most Grammy-nominated artist in history, with 79 nominations and 27 wins.  In addition to his own musical career and producing smashes like 'We Are the World,' he has produced artists such as Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, and Diana Ross, just to name a few.

The song was arranged by musical genius, Mervyn Warren.  Warren, a 5-time Grammy Award winner and 10-time Grammy Award nominee, is a highly accomplished film composer, record producer, lyricist, songwriter, arranger, pianist and vocalist. He was an original member of Take 6, the a-capella sextet. An amazing talent!

The recording session was held at the iconic Capitol Studios in Studio A.  Quincy brought in one of his new groups, Blush, a 5-girl Asian singing group, to sing the background vocals and harmonies.  Lucy then took to the recording booth to sing her part. Canadian vocal powerhouse, Nikki Yanofsky, is slated to sing the lead.  She is a quadruple platinum selling artist who, at the young age of 16, opened the Olympics when they were in Canada in 2010.  She will be releasing her first US Album this year.

Lucy and Nick are very excited about having had the opportunity to work with Quincy, Mervyn, Nikki, and Blush!

Exclusive: Toby Keith explains rebel label and vows to stay ‘captain of his ship’

Country superstar Toby Keith wears many hats: singer, songwriter, producer, actor and restaurateur -- and now he’s launched his own fashion line! Toby was in Las Vegas last week for the biannual MAGIC Marketplace, and before unveiling the TK Steelman clothes at a concert fashion show, I sat down and talked with him one-on-one.

Toby was nursing a bad cold with whiskey and water, and he didn’t want to go onstage to sing for the crowd who’d come to see the clothes. I told him if it meant him humming or doing a soft-shoe shuffle, he had to put on some kind of a performance! He gave in to the pleas and went onstage with local band Lefty Lucy in his I Love This Bar & Grill inside Harrah’s.

Toby wowed the fans with his songs and the fashions! His empire continues to expand, and last year Forbes named him the top-earning male musician at $48 million. He’s sold 25 million albums since 2000, and he’s selling out stadiums on his tour dates across America. He’s about to start filming Provinces of Night with Hilary Duff, and he’ll be back in town in April nominated as Male Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of Country Music.

After an exciting Finals competition at the Hard Rock, Lefty Lucy was named the winner of Kenny Chesney's "Next Big Star" Competition.  Only hours later they found themselves on the MGM Grand stage playing for a sold out crowd of 17,000 people.  Starting with a catchy original tune called, "On My Way," the crowd was singing along by the end of the song.  And the audience response was overwhelming, and absolute thrill!  Next to take the stage was Leann Rimes who sang beautifully.  Once Kenny took the stage, the crowd was deafening and he put on one heck of an exciting show.  Uncle Cracker even joined him for a couple tunes, including their smash hit, "When the Sun Goes Down."  After the concert was over, all met back in the Corona Tour Bus to rehash the big night.

LEFTY LUCY plays with Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Flynnville Train & Trailer Choir.  Sept 2007
In back to back weekends starting in Lake Tahoe then continuing in Las Vegas, Lefty Lucy played host to some great major Country recording artists.  In Lake Tahoe, LL was playing in the Cabo Wabo Cantina when after just finishing a concert show outside, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Flynnville Train, and Trailer Choir were all escorted into the VIP Red Rocker Room.  The place immediately amped up, and you could feel the energy in the air.  Members of each of the bands got up to play.  It was so crowded that they even had trouble getting to the stage.  One of the funny highlights of the night was Miranda entering the stage through a little cut out box in the wall, climbing through, knocking over beer bottles and eventually making a graceful jump onto the stage.  She and Lucy sang Kerosene while Lucy ripped out the solos on the harmonica.  the place went nuts.



TOBY KEITH joins LEFTY LUCY for the second year in a row at his "I Love this Bar and Grill" in Las Vegas.    May 14, 2007

With the ACM Awards being held in Las Vegas on Tuesday May 15, Toby was in Sin City and made his annual appearance at his bar the night before the awards.  Toby introduced Flynnville Train, an act on his label, 'Show Dog Nashville,' and they put on a great set when they opened up for Lefty Lucy.  Great guys and great energy!  Once Lefty Lucy took to the stage, the crowd was ready to go.  The bar was filled to capacity and everyone was there to have a great time... and possibly hear a few songs from their hero.  After Lucy belted out some powerful tunes, the time was right and he was good and ready, Toby entered the stage to screaming fans.  He was only supposed to sing one song, but was having such a great time, he kept asking to sing more!  The fans were going nuts.  In all, he sang about 4 songs, "I Love this Bar" of course, followed by 'Get Drunk and Be Somebody," "Whiskey Girl," and finally, "Little Less Talk."  Toby really took the time to talk to the crowd, did his famous lyric substitutions to fit the room and really connected with his loyal fans.  Flashbulbs were popping, people were jumping and Toby was loving every minute of it.  Toby was very impressed with the Lefty Lucy band for backing him up flawlessly, singing great harmonies, and graciously encouraging him to stay up until he had had his fill.  Lefty Lucy closed out the night to a packed house.  Definitely a memorable night for all!

NEAL SCHON from Journey and Lefty Lucy out for Thanksgiving, November 2006.

What a thankful evening in Las Vegas!  Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and Journey! Lefty Lucy shared a Thanksgiving meal with Journey's lead guitar player, Neal Schon.  The fixin's were great, as expected, but the after dinner entertainment was off the hook.  Once the guitar came out, the songs started flowing.  Lucy belted out some of Journey's favorites like, "Don't Stop Believing," "Stone in Love," and "Faithfully" to name a few.  Neal couldn't keep his hands off the guitar, and was loving every minute of it.  After the last strum of the six string, the party then moved on to Toby Keith's "I Love this Bar and Grill" at Harrah's Casino.  They had the VIP room all ready for the grand arrival and the rock star stories flowed like wine.  Must be rough to be one of the best guitar players in the world!

Las Vegas was crawling with Country Music's best last night, as The Academy of Country Music Awards were held at the MGM Grand on May 23, 2006.  After attending the ACM Awards presentation and enjoying live performances by Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley and Toby Keith, to mention a few... Lucy and Nick returned to Harrah's and prepared to play with the Lefty Lucy band at Toby's "I Love this Bar and Grill."  The curtains were drawn in Toby's VIP room and the rumors swirled that the big boss man was inside.  Moments before taking the stage Lucy was secretly ushered into the VIP room to meet with Toby and Harrah's president, Don Marrandino.  It was decided that Marrandino would join the band for a couple tunes, one of which was Toby's own "Stays in Mexico."  Lucy riled everyone up when she sang Janis Joplin on top of the bar.  Lefty Lucy killed the set and the crowd was electric!  After a brief break, Lefty Lucy took the stage for the second set.  The crowd was rocking' and after only a few songs, the word was given that there was to be a special guest on stage... Toby Keith, himself!  Toby was ushered onto the stage and the place erupted!  Toby sang his bar's namesake, "I Love this Bar," and then continued with his newest hit, "Get Drunk and Be Somebody."  When he finished, he graciously thanked everyone and said that he had to go catch a flight to the Middle East.  Toby was given a boisterous farewell and Lefty Lucy kept the show rocking until the wee hours.  What a night for all!  Best of luck to Toby on his tour.  We'll keep a good watch on your bar while you're away.
