Live from the cozy confines of the Metro in ever-resurging downtown Birmingham,
and podcasting straight to your earbuds, it's Lucky Man Presents...!
Lucky Man Presents... is a throwback to old variety shows, where entertainers from all over the spectrum of the arts come to perform. LMP's focus will be mainly on local and regional musicians, comedians, poets, performance artists, and hopefully, much more. In addition to the various performances, the artists will be interviewed by host, J David Black. This is one of the things that will make LMP stand out. Interviews with the performers will help bridge the gap between audience and artist and bring a deeper appreciation of the performance. LMP will also feature an audio podcast of the show, available soon after. J David Black is the Lucky Man. He is one-half of the duo that has brought us Friday on My Mind, a member of Red Mountain Family Band, and the host of Lucky Man Presents. David got the idea for LMP while watching a DVD of the Johnny Cash Show. The interview portions of the show were just as important to the audience, and artist, as the actual performance.
Poets, Artists, Comedians, Musicians of all genres, and Interesting People f rom All Walks of Life will be sharing the stage!!
