Lefty Lucie began in a fortunate twist of fate, rising from the ashes of another local band. Seeking to expand and experiment with new ideas, drummer Mike Nasti and acoustic guitarist Russell Gazzana set off in a fresh new direction.

Lefty Lucie was born. To complete the lineup, the band drew another name from their hat of old friends and musicians.

venues from St. Augustine to Miami, and beyond … what have you been
