THE LUCKY EEJITS was founded in 2007, originated as a 5 piece Irish Punk rock act but after losing multiple members to college and other things the band stripped down to a 3 piece. The band was set on making 3 piece punk music a strong force, which they did for years. Tragically, a huge hit was taken by the band when bass player EMILIO NEVAREZ was shot and killed by a stray bullet in Oakland CA after playing a birthday party/show. At that point the band almost decided to call it quits with the emotional impact it caused. Due to all the messages and kind words from people, the band believed that continuing EMILIO’S strong dream was the right thing to do despite what anyone thought. A close friend to the band, and EMILIO, stepped in and became the new full time bassist for THE LUCKY EEJITS. In honor of and in dedication to EMILIO, their new 10 inch “For Life” was born. Punk rock will never die, senseless violence can’t hold you back, and no matter what, EMILIO will live on forever in his music!!!!
