"Lazer Dad a Finalist for Best Vermont Cover Band"

Lazer Dad voted a finalist for Best Cover Band in the 2019 Seven Days 'Seven Daysies' - Seven Days

"Saved By the 90s"

The band's mission of reviving classic cuts by artists ranging from Nirvana to Third Eye Blind to the Backstreet Boys certainly spoke to me. But what really caught my eye was the website's kitschy 8-bit video game aesthetic and the band's running "dad" theme — though none of the fellas in the group is currently a dad. Each member has a defined persona, à la the Spice Girls: Lead guitarist Andy Kuzmin is the "cool" dad; bassist Axel Handy is the "smooth" dad; drummer Tanner Acebo is the "bad" dad; lead vocalist Alex Koch is the "weird" dad; rhythm guitarist Dante Rossi is the "mystery" dad; and keyboardist Erick Lattrell is the "electric" dad, rounding out the group.

Read their hilarious full bios on the band's Facebook page. Hi-C Ecto Coolers, Beanie Babies and Blues Traveler all receive shout-outs.

In an email to Seven Days, Kuzmin notes his group's goal is to amass enough material to host an evening of exclusively '90s live-band karaoke. But until then, fans of "the last great decade" — as the National Geographic channel called the '90s in a 2014 docu-series — should be stoked to simply pump up the jams and get jiggy. Also, you get bonus point for dressing in Hypercolor, Z. Cavaricci jeans, Umbro shorts, or whatever fine '90s fashions you can pick up at a thrift store or dig out of the closet. - Seven Days


Still working on that hot first release.



Formed by six nerdy Nineties kids who grew up to be musicians, LAZER DAD is a heat-seeking missile of fun that’ll blast you out of your seat and onto the dance floor. Together, they bring to life the deep cuts and hottest hits that defined the 1990s; from the grunge stylings of Nirvana to the pop appeal of Third Eye Blind, to the funk metal fury of Rage Against the Machine to the sultry croons of Alanis Morissette and all the pop/rock hits in-between, LAZER DAD is guaranteed to make you stand up and shout, “oh, hot damn, this is my jam!”

Put your Tamagotchi to bed, frost your tips, slap on a neon windbreaker and get ready to spend a night in the Nineties with LAZER DAD!
