This week, Ira Sternberg spoke with saxophonist, recording artist, and composer Dee Lucas, performing in the Copa Room at the Bootlegger Italian Bistro October 20. In this episode of “The Talk About Las Vegas Podcast” Dee talks about his love of the saxophone along with his self-taught approach; how both saxophone giants and local musicians inspired his artistic spirit; why he believes in “protecting” the music; what he communicates when he plays; and why he is cited as “the hardest working indie artist in the music industry.”
National recording artist and saxophonist Dee Lucas has steadily grown his brand and fan base beginning with Remembrance in 2004. Thereafter, it has been a steady showcase of unique stylings with Something to Ride 2 (2007), Standing Room Only (2010), Rebirth of the Smooth (2012), The Smooth Factor (2014), Going Deeper (2016), The Sweet Spot (2017), Going Left (2018), the critically-acclaimed The Time Is Now (2020), and the current release of No Boundaries (2023). Over the years, he has either co-billed or headlined on an extensive number of concerts and festivals across the U.S.
