At the Latin GRAMMYs last fall, Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band became the first North Americans ever to win in the children's album category. CNN en Español featured the band on "Showbiz," and the host remarked, "You are going to instill a desire to hear music in Spanish in children and adolescents who live in this country." The husband-wife duo of Lucky Diaz and Alisha Gaddis also released Lishy Lou and Lucky Too in 2013, an album and PBS TV musical variety show series airing on the Emmy Award winning "Friday Zone." National Public Radio's "All Things Considered" noted, with this project, they "demonstrated they're not afraid to reinvent their sound." Lucky and Alisha (an author and comedienne) have also been featured guests on Sprout TV, Univision and E! TV. A nationally touring band with critical acclaim from People and USA Today and regular play on SiriusXM Satellite Radio, Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band will appear in more than 50 all-ages concerts this spring and summer.
