|Doreen "Dough" Artley|
Doreen "Dough" joined Lucky Afternoon in 2003 as a keyboardist and vocalist. She has been playing since she was 16yrs old and brings a new flavor of music to the band. "Dough" is an accomplished accordion player too! Her roots are country & square dance bands including the Square Dance band "Happy Times." She also is the choir director for her local church.
But now, Dough is forgetting what country music sounds like. Throw the golf clubs on a sheet of paper and Dough is at her best! She is in the financial business and is married to Roadie Steve. Dough appears to be the shy and quiet one...but she's not!

As a drummer, Schrampie has that special touch and is rock solid! He so good, he should be in an LA studio for the stars. Sometimes you can hear him humming the song "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Cell Mate" AND he'll usually be tripping over a wire... The Big Lemming!

"Thanks for the Lucky Afternoon Band members for welcoming me so graciously and for the warm welcome I continue to receive from the fans!" Lucky is happy to have you with us too!!!
|Sue aka "Squid or Inky" & Steve aka "Mr. Blue Snowcone"|
Lucky Afternoon would not be as successful as it is
today if it wasn't for the "behind-the-scenes heroes
and band members" "Squid"
and "Roadie, Light Man, and Bouncer Steeeeve"
Snell and Steve help us set up and tear down for just a
small handout (and sometimes for free beer and food).
Squid and Steve "slide us into a nice level."
Squid sings backup for a few songs too!
saves our backs, does repairs on the fly, sets up the lights, gophers for us, and is
just a great friend (and he's Dough's husband).
They really do a great job keeping us
looking and sounding good.
We don't always tell you, but we love and appreciate you morons!
