After two years of playing weekly blues jams in local clubs, Alan Spilkin assembled a group of musicians which eventually became the band Lucy’s Bones. The original concept of the band was based on all original music, spanning genres of classic rock, blues, funk and country. The ambition to share lyrical messages and entertain audiences soon brought Lucy’s Bones out of the rehearsal studio and into the local music scene in late 2005. After four years of consistent monthly performances of original music, the band retooled and made a conscious decision to reach a broader audience by adding a mix of familiar cover tunes to the large repertoire of original music. As well, the collective experience of the band members includes hundreds of performances in the Northern California region spanning from the 1980s.
Lucy’s Bones is not just a collection of talented ambitious musicians, but brings a skill set that spans beyond music. All band members have successful careers in the community and pride themselves in their ability to behave in a professional manner. Our desire to be “people pleasers” has ensured that our private and public performances deliver good spirits and a worry free entertainment venue.
As professionals, we promise to provide great entertainment and are willing to fine tune, within our musical skill set, our product to our customer. In return, we expect to be compensated fairly and are always willing to work with our clients to ensure a mutually satisfactory outcome.
Whether you have a sound system or need complete sound reinforcement, we have the means to accommodate small or large venues.
Thank you for considering Lucy’s Bones as a compliment to your entertainment needs.
Lucy is an Australopithecus found by Donald Johanson and Tom Gray in Ethiopia in 1974. Celebrating their find later that night, the Beatles’ song “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds” gave them the inspiration for Lucy’s name. There’s more about the original Lucy at the Human Origin website.
So why “Lucy’s Bones”? Perhaps our name is a metaphorical homage to the longevity and social ramifications that all forms of music have on our current culture and throughout the ages. Perhaps Lucy inspires us to get back to our roots. Maybe we think skeletons are really cool…
