About


A GOLDEN VOICE AND A NICE HAT:
– LUCKY MULLIGAN – MUSIC & COMEDY –

Words that have been used to describe Lucky: cheeky, sweet, clever (disputed), friendly, and fun!

With a vintage musical sense and a spiffy wardrobe, Lucky treats audiences to easy listening, and a collection of songs that make you smile.

Vintage music with a fresh attitude: Lucky’s eclectic repertoire is very fun, indeed! Jazz from the twenties to fifties, rock’n’roll from the sixties and seventies, the occasional TV theme, and odd songs from many eras. Lighthearted, and witty for a nitwit, Lucky is sure to keep the feeling in the room nostalgic and amused. It’s difficult not to smile with Lucky playing. 

Lucky Mulligan has a collection of outfits from every era; he’ll fit to your theme. 

GET LUCKY EVERY LAST SATURDAY OF THE MONTH, at the Pour House, across from the Holbrooke, Grass Valley, 8-10PM!

First Place: July 4th Parade

The Grass Valley Downtown Association awarded Lucky Mulligan first place in the the Individual Entry category in the 2019 July 4th parade! Lucky rode through town on his inflatable dinosaur steed whilst wearing a ten gallon hat, and shredding on the ukulele. The kids loved it, and the parents loved the kids loving it!

The Music

Lucky studied the vocal arts for seven years, and has a golden voice. Don Baggett, Sr. was a great mentor to him. One day he was inspired to pick up a stringed instrument to accompany himself, and never looked back! He practices every day with great dedication.

Lucky Mulligan plays a Kala cedar topped, acacia paneled, mahogany necked, concert ukulele with inset pegs, and a very warm tone… and is definitely not being paid by Kala (based in Petaluma, CA) to advertise their extremely high quality ukuleles (but has availability as a brand ambassador).

Common Example Set Descriptions

Joyful Songs and Romantic Jazz – A favorite at restaurants and weddings, Lucky Mulligan sings classics like “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” “Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” “What a Wonderful World,” “Sunny Side of the Street,” and “Enjoy Yourself.” 

Irish Folk and Naughty Songs – A favorite at tasting rooms and taphouses,  Lucky reveals his comedy skills as he cracks wise, plays tributes to Ireland, sings drinking songs, and amuses with lyrics a little too much for a vanilla audience, such as “Whiskey in the Jar,” “Tribute” by Tenacious D, “The Pussy Cat Song” by Connie Vannett, “The Window Cleaner” by George Formby, and “Labia Limbo” by the Wet Spots.

Family Pop and Silly Songs – A favorite at street fairs and park stages, Lucky selects from novelty songs, children’s favorites and TV anthems, and other fun curiosities, peppering them with comic impressions of familiar voices, such as, “The Scooby Doo Theme,” “The F.U.N. Song” from Spongebob Squarepants, “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” theme from Toy Story, and “Baby Shark.”

Ukulele Jam – BYOU (Bring Your Own Ukulele) as Lucky Mulligan leads the crowd with everybody banging out chords, together! (Song chord packets available, suggested donation $5.) It’s a raucous good time, that goes over very well in bars with a little stage.
