Things to do
Think B.B. King sharing a scotch with Booker T at the Crossroads after midnight. With more awards than you can poke a mojo hand at, what started out as a hair brained idea between two friends medicating their way through jazz school over a bottle of red has taken them on an adventure that spans the globe. Multiple gongs in fact suggest Lazy Eye delivers some of the best original blues Australia has to offer.
Not all smooth sailing however, it was while broken down on the side of the highway in their well worn tour van that Lazy Eye learned they had been named Group Of The Year at the 2015 Australian Blues Music Awards where they were to appear.
Delighting audiences throughout their homeland and from the U.S. to Japan, Evan Whetter’s vocals are gritty with a velvety smack of soul, wielding his weather beaten Hammond with style as he leads an all killer no filler line up featuring rising star of the guitar Erica Graf and the supremely talented Mario Marino on drums. Lazy Eye’s latest offering Black Hill perfectly captures the band in their native environment, live in concert and catapulted the band again to “Group Of The Year at the 2019 Australian Blues Music Awards as well as earning a finalist nomination for “Song Of The Year”. This time you bet they didn’t break down and miss all the fun!
“Powerfully fuelled by the soaring sound of Whetter’s B3, Graf’s fretwork is neatly crafted, pushing through the roaring organ sound when needed. Vocals are mostly shared between the members and show a clear grasp of the fundamentals of gritty, gripping delivery and soulful blues demands. This is a band that has quality and purpose at its core.” - Elmore Magazine (USA)
“Fine album from a band that I'd soon want to see play on the European stage.” - Rudolf's Music (Netherlands)
“Un petit tour en Australie pour découvrir un trio remarquable... A remarkable trio” - Blues Again (France)
“That these funky greens are being produced by the Australian band Lazy Eye somewhere in the southern Australian climes is just the international gravy made by the music” - All About Jazz (USA)
“The experience acquired in such a short time of life is expressed in "Lazy Eye"... interweaving the present and future of the blues, showing the strength and passion of the trio” - Stories Of The Blues (Spain)
