For the past 6 years a cat named KC Turner has been presenting his outdoor cookout concert series up in Marin, and this year’s events have been as popular as ever. I attended one this past weekend featuring Chuck Prophet and The Sam Chase opening.

Just before the show, none other than Commander Cody guitar player Bill Kirchen, no slouch in the string slingin’ department, deemed  “The Titan of The Telecaster” by Guitar Player magazine, gave Chuck & Steph’s live set a ringing endorsement as one of “the most enjoyable R’n’ R shows” he’d ever seen.

Here’s Chuck doing his song “Wish Me Luck” backed by his wife Stephanie Finch, drummer Vicente Rodriguez and bassist Steve Rue Adams (who is also in Animal Liberation Orchestra, and previously played with Chuck & Charlie Sexton doing a Rolling Stones’ Some Girls tribute tour in Spain circa 2018)

“Wish Me Luck’ is from Chuck Prophet’s album “Night Surfer” that was released in 2014 on Yep Roc Records

My life is an experiment

that doesn’t prove a thing


I wake up every morning

wondering

what the day will bring…


Then I throw open the windows
I fill up both my lungs
And I shout “Look out all you losers here I come”
So wish me luck
Even if you don’t mean it
Wish me luck
If it’s not too much to ask
Wish me luck
It’s not like I really need it
It just feels so good to hear it anyway

Now I’ve harvested your cannabis
Down the Yucatan
In fact I slept beside a Catholic priest one time
In Henry Rollins’ van

I’ve marched in your parades
And I’ve fought your late night wars
But in my father’s house there are no doors
So wish me luck
Even though I don’t need it
Wish me luck
If it’s not too much to ask

Wish me luck
It’s not like I really need it
It just feels so good to hear it anyway
Now watch me dance upon a wire
Watch me dangle from a string
Shining like a diamond in the sun
Shining like a diamond
Shining like a diamond
Shining like a diamond in the sun
Wish me luck
Even if you don’t mean it
Wish me luck
If it’s not too much to ask
Wish me luck
It’s not like I really need it
It just feels so good to hear it anyway
Come on now
How hard can it be?
Wish me luck
You can do it
Come on now

Songwriters: Chuck Prophet / Kurt Lipschutz / James Deprato
