Artist Bio

Lucky May are an Auckland-based acoustic duo / trio / quartet, performing a wide range of classic covers with their own distinctive soul-pop twist. They offer a variety of music vibes from easy-listening jazzy background sounds to high-energy dance floor bangers; catering for intimate or large-scale events including weddings, corporate functions, parties, festivals, bar gigs and cruise work. Equipped with 2 guitars, a stomp box & vocals, Lucky May can create a surprisingly full sound. Add the double -bass and / or drums to the mix and things get even tastier! This funky acoustic cover band are a great addition to any live event.

L.M. started as a duo but can expand to a trio, quartet and add more players depending on the brief. Members consist of Ema Barton: Vocals/Guitar and Windon Bradfield: Guitar/Percussion/BV’s… along with Eamon Edmundson: Double Bass or Electric Bass / BV’s and / or Jess Hix: Drums/Percussion/BV’s.

Ema and Windon decided to join forces in 2016 after falling in love as like-minded musicians sometimes do. Eamon joined the band after some successful trips cruising around the Pacific and Jess can really bring the party. Whilst dabbling in many genres from jazz, rock, soul, folk to current top 40s, the band have a special passion for the MoTown sound. Make sure to also check out their acoustic Duo for intimate occasions and smaller events.
