Rig Rundown: Lucero

The country-punkers out of Memphis share the roadworthy gear that allows them to seamlessly blend neo-Stax soul and barroom rock 'n' roll.

Since Lucero is playing two sets on this fall tour, Venable opted to bring a second amp on the road with him so he can have a quiet tone and a loud tone. His lower-volume amp is a Fender ’68 Custom Princeton Reverb that he uses for the softer songs that they start with each night.

PG’s Chris Kies catches up with Lucero’s Brian Venable, Ben Nichols, and John C. Stubblefield before the band’s first tour date in support of All a Man Should Do at Nashville’s Cannery Ballroom.
