Israel’s King Of The Blues Lazer Lloyd Lands on The Lakeshore!
This edition of “Midwest BEAT with Tom Lounges” originally aired on June 10, 2014.
The musical guest is guitarist/vocalist/songwriter LAZER LLOYD, hailed worldwide as “Israel’s King of the Blues.”
After meeting a homeless man in Central Park while living in the U.S., Lloyd walked away from an Atlantic Records deal and production opportunity with an E-Street member to chase his muse to the Middle East.
American born-and-raised Lloyd shared the story of his colorful career during a call to Tom Lounges from Israel, telling of his incredible musical journey, one that took him to Israel where he has spent over 20 years helping develop a blues scene in the Middle East. Hear as he talks about how B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan and George Harrison has impacted on his own music.
This radio show features both acoustic and electric blues from Lloyd’s catalog, including selections from his newest album, “Lost On The Highway,” a 13-song set of original acoustic blues. Backed by The Chicago Blues Kings, Lloyd performs live June 22 at The Northwest Indiana Jewish Federation in Munster and June 24 at Rosa’s Lounge in Chicago. More: www.LazerLloyd.com.
