LAZY EYE
CHRISTMAS PARTY THEME
FRIDAY | 21 December 

Think Booker T sharing a scotch with B.B. King at the crossroads after midnight.

“Guitar licks, picked over tremulous Hammond organ chords and shuffling blues beats are the core of this retro blues collection, which manages to emit authenticity despite the obvious legacy of its influences.” – The Sydney Morning Herald

With a sound that’s described as “B.B. King sharing a Scotch with Booker T”, what Evan Whetter & Erica Graf set out to create was a contemporary Australian act that was steeped in the blues, credible and relevant. Just a few short years later, with a swag of awards under their belt, a body of work that boasts four albums, an EP and numerous festival appearances around the country, although still emerging, they’re well on their way to achieving just that.

The critically acclaimed South Australian band Lazy Eye released their debut album in 2013. On the back of copious kilometres of regional touring they were proud to take home “Album Of The Year” at the SA Blues & Roots awards. Referred to as “blues but with a twist” by a prominent festival booker, what Lazy Eye offer is something out of the ordinary from other touring acts. “We definitely approach the music differently. Not just because of where we’re from geographically and in time, but because of our instrumentation”.
