Lazy Ike & The Daredevils

Lazy Ike & The Daredevils

BandCountryRock

Original, rockabilly-fueled, high-octane, Outlaw Country -- imagine Dwight Yoakam's band fronted by Waylon Jennings. (We also have a mellow side which we reserve for for VFWs, Legions and community events -- lots of two-steps, waltzes and a polka or two!)

Biography

Somewhere between Memphis and Nashville is a fork in the road where country turned left and rock-n-roll turned right. Lazy Ike and the Daredevils, an original, rockabilly-fueled, high-octane, Outlaw Country band formed in 1999, rocks and twangs at that intersection. Offering an original blend of Outlaw Country, rockabilly, juke-jumpin’ honky tonk, and straight-up, four-on-the floor country rock, the group pleases both the dancing crowd and the barstool set. The band has been nominated four times for a Minnesota Music Award. Additional highlights include: opening for the legendary George Jones in June of 2005; playing every Wednesday night at Lee’s Liquor Lounge for two years; playing at world-famous First Avenue twice; playing for several thousand people at Stillwater’s Lumberjack Days; and recording a CD (“Someday”) at Sun Studio in Memphis, Tenn.

The band has played nightclubs, dive bars, private parties and weddings. They have more than four hours of material -- and once played six-and-a-half hours without repeating a song!

Pithier than pop country, but far from a nostalgic anachronism, Lazy Ike and the Daredevils will crowd dance floors as long as bartenders pour whiskey and men and women pine for lovers they’ll never win.

Somewhere up north, shimmering on the sylvan surface of one of 10,000 lakes, is a blue moon that keeps on shinin’. Lazy Ike and the Daredevils will take you there.
