THELUGKNUCKLES is a dirty funk band based in the San Francisco Bay Area and is the brainchild of bassist/bandleader, CHRIS LUJAN (that's me). I've been working as a sideman in countless bands throughout the Bay Area. THELUGKNUCKLES is a name I've used whenever I've decided to step into the spotlight to do exactly the kind of music that I wanna do. This also allows me to pull in whichever musicians I feel would best fit whatever project I have in mind at any given time.
This time around, THELUGKNUCKLES are:
Rob Dehlinger - Trumpet
Erik Mekkelson - Tenor Sax
Paul Crespo - Guitar
John Baker - Guitar
Vince Voelz - Hammond Organ, Rhodes
Chris Lujan - Fender Bass
Brandon Etzler - Drums
We've already been in the studio working on getting this thing together. Side A and Side B of THELUGKNUCKLES first 45rpm record are all mixed and ready to go. I've already covered the cost on getting this portion of the project done.
The money raised by this KICKSTARTER campaign will be used to fund the pressing of the physical 45rpm vinyl record.
That's where you come in! Watch the video. Take a listen to the tunes. Check out the rewards.
Get it on the ground floor and let's get thing going together!
This record by THELUGKNUCKLES will be the first record for the LUGNUT BRAND label. Three follow-up records, each by different bands, are already in the works.
No need to fret if you don't have a turntable. The songs will also be available on iTunes.
