A special collaboration is being born between an extraordinary collection of potent musical forces. Israel's King of the Blues, singer/songwriter guitarist, Lazer Lloyd, will travel from Jerusalem to present a special evening of music with his spiritual blues brothers the amazing rhythm section of Kenny Coleman on drums and Felton Crews on bass.
The Washington Post called Lazer, "One of the most popular blues/rock singers and guitarists in Israel". The Nashville Blues Society on his 2013 album wrote, "Lloyd's guitar skills are impeccable, with a rich, deep vocal delivery that really unleashes the power of these songs. A consummate musician, writer, and storyteller".
Lazer has spread love of the blues/rock across Israel. Music writer, Ken Shankman in his new article on Lazer for the Toronto Blues Society explains that as a young man on the verge of a record deal with Atlantic, Lazer met Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach in New York City. Ken writes, "He was deeply moved and spiritually inspired by Carlebach and played live with him in Manhattan and resolved to move his career to Israel. Lazer was sure he had made the right decision and he decided to make Israel his home. He felt it was the best place to make music and to be at peace with himself."
Since then Lazer has opened for such artists as Johnny Winter, Prince, Snowy White, and Olie Brown as well as headlining weekly in clubs and major festivals in Israel. His live performances are a blend of a good old blues and rock and roll stomp, passionate ballads, virtuoso guitar solos, connection and laughs with the audience. Lazer's voice adds deep, intimate, inspiration and searing vocals to the bluesy bed laid down by his guitar that make for a night to remember.
