The Lucky 5 is a hard-swinging jazz band that blends swing and Gypsy jazz to create a unique, foot-stomping blend of music that appeals to a wide range of music lovers. The Lucky 5 performs both original compositions, as well as putting a new spin on old jazz standards.

The band is comprised of highly seasoned touring musicians, having been part of the Hunger Mountain Boys, Lauren Ambrose & the Leisure Class, and traveled, performed and recorded with such diverse artists such as Peter Gabriel, Tony Bennett, Neko Case, Iris Dement, Bobby Previte, Del McCoury and Jim Lauderdale, just to name a few.
