Artist: The Lucky Ones, Album: The Booze Sessions, Song: Raise A Glass

The Lucky Ones are a punk rock band from St.Catharines, Ontario.  They are Steve Stumble, Chris Nowicki, Robbie Knuckles and Matt Murphy.  They are signed to indie label, Stumble Records, and released their debut EP, The Booze Sessions, in the fall of 2010.  Vocalist Steve Stumble was the front man for another nineties band called The Sick Boys.  They were a fixture on the punk rock scene in Southern Ontario for many years and opened for Rancid at one point.  Steve started his own label, Stumble Records, in 1998, and now dedicates much of his time to finding and developing other like minded musicians.  He has a strong roster of bands currently like the Matadors (see blog 9/1/10) and he's done some great work promoting music in the Niagara community over the years.  He also has some great videos up on You Tube of both the Lucky Ones and his former band, the Sick Boys.  After a decade away from the mic, Steve was lured back with an intent on having fun again and you kinda get a sense of that spirit on this track, Raise A Glass.  These guys are playing for the love of rock and roll and nothing else.  Straight ahead, kick your ass in, punk rock with a capital P.  The band is working on their sophomore release which should be a full length this time around.  You can keep tabs on them at or alternatively at  The debut EP, The Booze Sessions, can be purchased on Itunes.  You can hear the song, Raise A Glass, on You Tube (  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
