A Note From Katie:
I may manage the band but we work together, and it shows on stage. That is the main reason we call ourselves The Lucky Seven. It is rare to find the kind of united energy we bring to the table. We all feel truly Lucky to be here.
Having live, experienced musicians at your event or venue can create the mood that you are striving for. But, our talents aren't just musical. We can be as involved, or uninvolved, as you would like, from handling announcements to assisting early on with event planning, sound, lighting, you name it. We have marketing gurus and sound technicians in our ranks.
We want you to be able to relax and enjoy your event, and your guests to have as much fun as we do... and we do. This is our passion.

Katie Alosi - Lead Female and Backup Vocalist
Katie grew up in a house filled with music. In each room a different era could be heard. Everything from her father’s Big Band sounds, mom’s Country, 50’s Sock Hops, and 60’s Folk, brother’s Classic Rock and her radio playing Modern Pop. It was as if they needed music just to function. With both parents being musicians it was no surprise that Katie became a musician as well. Each night lullabies were sung together in rounds and harmonies.
Katie started performing in public, in church, at around three or four years old in Susanville, CA. From there she participated in church and community events as a soloist, within choral groups, worship teams, competitions, and in musical theater. “There is an immense amount of musical talent in Lassen County. I am
so thankful that they shared their knowledge with me.”
After a move to Sacramento she was the front woman for the Drum & Base/ Trance band, Dance The Moon. The Bassist from that band, Jim Sandelius, was instrumental in inspiring Katie to release an album of her originals. As a team they assembled some amazing recording artists to create the Adult Contemporary album, I Wonder If I’ll Die Here, currently available at KatieAlosi.com and YouTube. After Jim’s untimely passing, Katie wanted to try something completely different and she became the front woman for the 90’s Rock cover band, Idle Aegis.
In 2011 her brother was asked to assemble one of his older music projects to play
at a high school reunion. With few of the original members available, a new Hard Rock group, Blackbane, was assembled with Katie included. The group decided to progress and soon expanded into two bands The Lucky Seven being one of them. “I love these people and this music.” says Katie of the new line up and their Modern Dance, Pop, Rock style, “This is definitely where I belong.” Katie is one of the vocalists for The Lucky Seven and also manages the band. She would be happy to answer any questions you might have.
