Feeling a bit camera shy


What happens when a lil' ol' boy from Memphis grows up on rock radio, melts his mind, travels the world, and bumps into his Buddha nature? Lonnie Lazar.

With a combination of solid songwriting and adventurous jamming Lonnie has lately performed fun, high-energy gigs at Ashkenaz, the Sweetwater Saloon, and the High Sierra Music Festival in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Lonnie first caught the rock 'n roll bug in 1985, and spent the next two years on stage with bar-bands all across Europe and Asia. Landing back in hometown Memphis, Lonnie spent 1988-89 screaming white boy blues and fishing songs from Beale Street to the North Point as the front-man for Live Bait, a serious contender on the southern blues/rock circuit at the time. From 1989-92, Lonnie took it up a notch with The Mules, cult favorites of the Memphis bar scene, whose live recordings still circulate among the faithful.

In 1992, Lonnie got bit by another bug – a love affair with California. Moving west to San Francisco inspired a new devotion to songwriting, and he road-tested his craft in local clubs throughout the rest of the decade. The result was his first cd – Save Yourself – produced by Nashville veteran, Rusty McFarland in 2000.

That led to even more time honing his stage work and his storytelling skills, stints with three different bands, the birth of his first child, and work with reknowned Bay Area vocal coach, Sharon Pucci.

Coming off a two year run with electric jam rockers The Vaporizers, Lonnie has a cache of new songs and a compelling stage presence that puts him at the top of his game and puts audiences in his hand.
