Assembled June 2017 in Raleigh NC, this pack of cosmic large dogs known as Lazaris Pit bring together 3 individuals of diverse musical backgrounds to create a sound that cannot be accurately described in words but must be experienced live.
Consisting of Ely "Salted Sweet Cream" Yarbrough on guitar and lead vocals, Cameron "Sugarfoot" Preston on bass, and Jon "Dok Tok" Castro on drums, Lazaris Pit freely improvises a dreamy blend of punk, funk, soul, psychedlia, reggae, jazz, noise, and ambience into a one-of-a-kind dance party that will leave the people asking when "this band" is coming back to town!
Having played shows up and down the east coast from Philly to Atlanta, we are looking to bring our unique brand of rock-n-roll nationwide. Given that our sounds have resonated from large festival fields, through historic college campuses, to the most intimate of dive bars and clubs, we have the skill and catalogue to craft a set for any occasion. When music lovers leave a Lazaris Pit show, they haven't just heard a standard night of music, they have experienced a mind meld of musical tapestries that take us all on an emotional journey through not only time and space but ideally ourselves in the process. In summary...its a hoot!
