It takes just a few musicians and their instruments to start a reggae band. But to successfully bring that breezy island sound to a landlocked city such as Dallas, Texas requires something exceptional.

Bum Lucky was born out of the desire to cultivate a distinguished reggae music scene in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. Being located far from the beaches and pot-friendly atmospheres where the genre thrives forced the four-piece to dig deeper in its songwriting and sound — a welcome challenge that thrust the music new heights and enticed bands such as Fortune Youth and Tribal Seeds to play alongside Bum Lucky in their hometown.

The band’s latest EP, Show Some Love, is founded in roots-rock reggae and dub, and tinged with elements from southern rock and blues. The result is a collection of songs as gritty as they are seductive — the music embodies a rebellious spirit that serves as both a call to action and remedy on the dancefloor.

This fresh approach has rewarded Bum Lucky opportunities to share the stage with bands such as the Original Wailers, Lee Scratch Perry, Katchafire, Groundation, the Expendables, the Movement, Sensamotion, Mishka, Tribal Seeds and Fortunate Youth, among others. They’ve been guests at esteemed festivals throughout the Southwest while touring on a rigorous schedule the last several years to spread the gospel of good tunes.

The band plans to release a new single, called “Steven Avery,” in summer 2017 and follow up with a righteous North American tour you don’t want to miss. Hustle is the name of their game — one they expect to play all year long.


Bum Lucky is:
Mike Richardson – Lead Vocals, Guitar
Kyle Atkinson – Bass, Backup Vocals
John Rivera – Keys, Melodica
Colton Crews - Drums

Roots Rock Reggae band from Arlington Texas! Bringing all the Reggae Hits. Smooth Harmonies, Heart-Stoppin Bass, that Dub Stylee and Wailing Guitar riffs to melt your face off! Guaranteed to make you shake it and leave you smiling! "When Idol's on the Job, it goes hard like cement."

idoljob started out as a passion project for lead vocalist Michael Peace in 2006 with a cast of rotating players and became a highly sought after party band for the Dallas/Fort Worth area, playing all kinds of venues.

After taking some time off for family and other music endeavors, Michael (formerly of Champa) and lead guitarist Terry Davis (formerly of Egress & 40 oz to Freedom) started to jam together again and sparked the idea of making idoljob a full time band.

To fill out the band Michael asked his sister Angela Peace to join the band for backup vocals/effects and Terry asked Bobby Liszewski (formerly of Egress) to join on bass. Then the pursuit of the drummer began, finally resting with Jay "J-Bird" Wilson (formerly of Blood Stain Carpet and current project Lost Art Legacy-hip-hop duo). Combining all their backgrounds of reggae, rock, funk, roots, soul, jazz, metal, pop, hip-hop and rap - they plan on kicking up the volume a few notches in the reggae scene!

2017 - idoljob is currently working on originals to be released soon!
