LUCKY MILLINDER picture
Lucius Venable (Lucky) Millinder (August 8, 1900 – September 28, 1966) was an American rhythm and blues and swing bandleader and singer.

Millinder was born in Anniston, Alabama and was raised in Chicago, Illinois. Millinder worked in clubs, ballrooms, and theatres in the late 20s as a dancer and master of ceremonies. Although he could not read music, and did not play an instrument, his showmanship and musical taste made his bands successful.

In the 1930s, he took a band to Europe and on his return he was named the frontman to the Mills Blue Rhythm Band where he was a regular at The Cotton Club. Later in the 1930s, he formed a big band under his own name.

He was a bandleader from 1931 to 1952 and recorded under his own name from 1940 on.

His 1940s band included at various times Eddie (Lockjaw) Davis, Bill Doggett, Dizzy Gillespie,
