Welcome! So happy you found me here where you can find ALL things LUCIE........with an IE!
Sometimes NY just rocks!!!!!!! Three days before Easter and NY is 37 degrees. Strutting up Madison Avenue on brisk and sunny Morn wearing every piece of clothing I brought with me from Palm Springs knowing I got a rave in The Times and that Rex Reed loved my show.
Now performing in NYC!
A little about the show:
Lucie Arnaz: SPRING IS HERE! is a show about the arc of love in all it's glory. The fallout from cupid's arrows. The finding. The falling. The fantasies. The foul ups. (All the F words).
With songs from Sammy Cahn, Jimmy Van Heusen, Jule Styne, Cy Coleman, Carolyn Leigh, Johnny Mercer, David Zippel, Marilyn & Alan Bergman, Johnny Mandel, Harold Arlen, Ira Gershwin, Yip Harburg, Cole Porter, David Friedman, Craig Carnelia, Ron Abel, Chuck Steffan, Madeline Stone and Lucie Arnaz! Arranged by some of the best in the music business (including Marvin Hamlisch, Billy Stritch, Tedd Firth, Cy Coleman, and Ron Abel).
Musical Director: Ron Abel (Bass: Tom Hubbard, Drums: Ray Marchica)
Don't forget Lucie has two CDs available now too: JUST IN TIME (Concord Jazz 1993) and LATIN ROOTS (LML Music 2010).
I am also booking my LATIN ROOTS big band show. Check my calendar page for dates (Laguna, Arizona, etc.) And I hope to bring that big show into Las Vegas soon, too.
It's a story I've been longing to tell, the genesis of my love affair with music and a tribute to the man who introduced it to me.
Here's a taste:
Meantime, from my merchandise dept. let me tell you, if you haven’t already, checked out my LATIN ROOTS CD, please do. I am so darn proud of this one, and I think there will be many songs you will want to listen to again and again.
Also, I am proud to announce all six seasons of HERE’S LUCY (the series I co-starred in with my mother, Lucille Ball, and my brother, Desi Arnaz, Jr.), are now available on DVD courtesy of MPI. The wrap around commentaries on these are priceless.
In Family News:
My son, Joe Luckinbill, is still promoting his newest CD (artwork above, left), "Lugenbühl" and I think it is even better than the first. Some excellent writing and production on these new songs. I hope you will check it out. And his music has also been used in films and television now,too. Most exciting, Joe relocated and started his own recording studio in Los Angeles canvassing other new talent to produce. Check him out at joeluckinbill.com, on Facebook and on MySpace. You go, Joe!!!
My multi talented daughter, Katharine Luckinbill, enjoys her busy life in the advertising world and also continues to post an online advice column on KATE-BOOK.com that is not only entertaining, but full of some solid tips on so many topics about which I had no clue she was so savvy. She is a heck of a good writer that girl.
And, my üüüüber talented partner in crime and passion (and the father of all these brilliant babes), Laurence Luckinbill, has a fantastic website now complete with hours of performance videos (welcome to the 21st Century, Lar!!) created by our multi-talented son / stepson, Ben Luckinbill.
Let's not forget the first Luckinbill brother, Nick. He is a composer and music producer and recently had one of his tracks featured in a commercial during the Olympics!
What a fabulous bunch of talented artists are these children we made. Better than that, they are ALL great people trying to do something to enrich the happiness quotient on the planet.
Safe and Happy Holidays Everyone!
