Having supported the old school likes of Alice Cooper and the up and coming Syd Arthur, six piece Lapis Lazuli are about to embark on a UK headline tour of their own, taking in venues up and down the country.
The tour comes as a follow up to an innovative double album release and an 18 date European jaunt which saw them pick up some excellent live reviews on the continent and in the UK.
Their music has a jazz-funk basis that lends itself to diverse influences from the worlds of salsa, ska, blues, psychadelia and much, much more. With such a versatile approach their epic, sprawling tracks carry an energy that leaves rooms dancing and getting completely lost in the music.
Words don’t capture the whole story, but you can get an idea of their immense skill and musicianship at their Soundcloud page (https://soundcloud.com/lapis-lazuli-1) and if you like what you hear make sure you catch them at one of the venues below.
