Biography
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.
