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.

During the acoustic numbers, Nichols pairs his Martin flattop with a Fishman Loudbox Artist combo. He admits that he’ll use the onboard reverb during the set and may try out the chorus or phaser after a few barley pops.

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.
