Lucky and Tamara Peterson at the Adriatic Thursday, December 20th!

Lucky Peterson returns to the Adriatic for a great show Thursday night at 8:30 PM.  His lovely and talented wife will join him on stage.  She is a superb vocalist!

As most fans know, Lucky was child prodigy who played his first proefessinal engagement at age 3. His first recording was at age 5 (produced by noneother than Willie Dixon) and then went on to be featured on The Ed Sullivan Show and The Tonight Show by the time he was age 6.

 $10 at the door is a steal for this great artist!  Come out and support live music!
