Cas Lucas is busting into the San Francisco blues scene with
gigs at the Mission District's Voodoo Lounge and SoMa's venerable Hotel Utah, among others. For Florida-born
Cas, "picking up the slide was a musical rebirth." He's
eager to please, wants you to come see him.
He's got a new blues trio...
the traditional delta roots of Johnson and House with modern
influences, Lucas's brand of blues is a hybrid of delta, funk,
rock, and soul music. Performing traditionals, original blues,
and slide guitar adaptations of songs by a diverse selection
of modern artists such as Paul Simon, Otis Redding, Jimi Hendrix,
and Sting, Lucas brings a lot to the table in his solo performances."

Delta blues slide and
play classic tunes by the likes or Robert Johnson and Son House,
and modern riffs from players like Ben Harper, Kelly Joe Phelps,
John Mooney, and Bonnie Raitt," says Cas. "My lessons
are fun, and entirely riff and feel based. No knowledge of theory
is required. My studio is in Berkeley and I do house calls all
around the Bay Area."
