Guitar Lightnin’ Lee, a multi-talented rhythm and blues purist, has defied all rational logic by assembling his band with a bunch of veteran rock and rollers half his age. His talent, lyrics, powerful voice, and boisterous personality match perfectly with his backup band. Thus, creating a supercharged blown out style of New Orleans rock and roll and blues. The youthful exuberance from all members, especially Lightnin’, keeps the music exciting and gives it the vibrancy it had in it’s heyday.


Unfortunately, Guitar Lightnin' Lee is battling Lung Cancer and needs your help.  He is currently undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatment which is proving to be costly due to travel expenses,  excessive specialists visits, and medications.  Lightnin' has performed for many charitable events for others and understands the importance of selflessness. Guitar Lightnin' Lee's lung health is most important so that he may continue to amazingly entertain us with his powerful vocals and extraordinary talent of playing the harmonica, as well as the guitar.  Your donation would be most appreciated by Guitar Lightnin' Lee, as he is 100% committed to returning back to the stage in full swing for his fans.

Lightnin' saw the tornado face to face today before taking cover. Now we are without electricity for I don't know how long. We just cleaned out the refrigerator and freezer of all perishable foods.
Our neighborhood destroyed!

Lightnin' received his 5th round of chemo today. He has lost his appetite and nearly 30lbs and his doctors expressed concern. Even once he has completed all the radiation and chemotherapy treatments there will be a long road to recovery from this ordeal.

i love guitar Lightnin' so much. so many many stories. here's a good one. after katrina: standing on a pitch dark street with no one around for miles outside of the then dark and flooded saturn bar. piles of garbage everywhere. no lights. then i hear music in the distance. LITTLE RICHARD blasting. "the girl can't help it"---two head lights, coming closer. it's a white escalade. the window rolls down. it's guitar lightning. "MATTY!" he shouts. "what are you doing here?! you shouldn't be out here~ you need a ride? get in"
