Lazer Lloyd, Israel's King of Blues Rock, brings to Biscuits and Blues on Sunday Nov. 23th fresh sound, new songs, and deep roots with all-star backing from Felton Crews and Kenny Coleman, the world famous rhythm section of the Chicago Blues Kings. Lazer is an Israeli singer/songwriter and an international recording artist influenced by blues, gospel, southern rock, and the great guitar traditions of power and groove from Hendrix to Wes Montgomery. His music takes the audience into his world from the tender moments of a traveling musician in "By Your Side", to a man struggling with life "Talk", he opens hearts with "world soul groove" on "Way Down" and "Back Porch" and then rocks with intensity and joy on irresistible tunes like "Good Man Down", "Set My Soul Free", and "Rockin' in the Holy Land".
The Lazer Lloyd Band, which has successfully crossed over into the Israeli mainstream music scene, been featured playing live on Israeli Channel 8 TV’s “Guitar Heroes” hosted by Tal Friedman, Channel 10′s “London and Kirschenbaum”, 88FM with Gedi Livneh, as well as on Yoav Kutner’s Army Radio program. Kutner commented, “From the moment the sounds of his blues guitar reached the air it was completely clear that this is an international-level guitarist. His shows are worth every minute. One of the great musicians.”
Coming to San Francisco fresh from his second tour of Russia, Lazer has opened for such artists as Johnny Winter, Prince, Snowy White, and Olie Brown. Lazer Lloyd's singing and guitar playing has been honed to perfection by his constant touring in Israel and he takes it to the next level with the deep groove and power backing of Chicago stars bass player (Felton Crews) and drummer (Kenny Coleman). They will be playing a riveting set of songs previewing Lazer's upcoming 2015 album of new music and some of his greatest classic tunes.
