Tom Marker (Blues Breakers - WXRT Radio) - "The Lucky Three Blues Band is made up of three veteran Chicago musicians who found the pull of the blues irresistible, and have now made their own irresistible blues. And the best blues video I've seen in a long time."
Lin Brehmer (WXRT Chicago) - “The deep down dirty blues from 3 guys who have been around the block. A real dirty block.”
Johnny Mars (WXRT Radio) - "This will have you staggering for more; a rollicking blast from some grizzled Chicago music veterans. Love it !"
Nicholas Tremulis - “Went to see The Lucky 3 tonight. Guitar wiz Jay O'Rourke, Frank Raven on harp and the always captivating Jim Desmond on vocal. DEEP blues stuff with archaic drum machine sounds. I know where I'll be on mondays at 8 from now on...”
Simon Dickinson (Rock & Roll Chef) - "Its hard to describe how cool this trio is in a few words, to say they have their act together is an under statement. If you see the name, run and get tickets, they bring it and DIM SUM !!!!!."
Anna Fermin - "The Lucky 3's unique edge, yet simple approach paired with their diverse influences create the perfect musical storm…"
Robbie Fulks - "Jay O'Rourke makes everything he touches turn to a good sound......Of all the music on youtube, Jay's new project Lucky 3 Blues Band is one of the goodest...... Instead of doing the things the Lucky 3 Blues Band sings about, and dying, just listen, and live a little."
Mark Panick (Razorhouse) - “Cool ass nice & dirty...like Texas blues meets Captain Beefheart...”
