Lucero has long been admired in their hometown of Memphis, where they have hosted The Lucero Family Block Party every spring for a number of years. At the 2018 Block Party they celebrated their 20th anniversary as a band, with the city’s Mayor Jim Strickland officially declaring it ‘Lucero Day.’
The group found their name in a Spanish/English dictionary. Lucero is variously translated as bright star or morning star. None of them can speak Spanish.
