Lucky Troubles – Blues during Caravaning Festival Warsaw

Lucky Troubles – Blues during Caravaning Festival Warsaw

The band Lucky Troubles from Poznań was founded in 2022. Founding fathers were three experienced musicians who appear almost daily on the music scene in Poznań and Bydgoszcz.

We were lucky enough to hear this band at the Camper Festival in Warsaw, to experience it live and also to talk to drummer Andrzej Kownacki, who by the way speaks good German.

lucky troubles 2The experience and creativity of these three musicians ensure that the music they often interpret sets new standards and invites the listener on a colorful journey of sound.

Both original compositions and live covers in the repertoire are often a starting point for artists to improvise, thanks to which their concerts are always interesting and full of emotions. The trio is working on the first album, which will feature compositions and lyrics by Jakub, Andrzej and Maciej.

The premiere of the album is planned for the summer of 2023.

Own compositions enrich the repertoire

lucky troubles 3The band on the song "Burning Tires": "The song is about a long-awaited moment to take a deep breath, a chance to leave everyday duties and worries behind for a while."

The world we live in is becoming more and more exciting and the number of everyday topics to be dealt with is increasing. The need for rest and relaxation becomes all the more important. And while everyone has their own way of "letting things go," paradoxically, this is getting faster and faster.

Acceleration, wind in your hair, favorite music from the car loudspeakers - this allows musicians to clear their heads and recharge their batteries. Could this also be your path? Jakub, Andrzej and Maciej encourage you to try it and invite you on a journey together.
