Little Lazy Band July 28 Facebook.com/LittleLazyBand
Little Lazy is truly a sight for sore eyes. With Brendan Pafford on vocals and guitar and Kevin Cook on drums, the Orlando rock duo has been carefully crafting their distinct and eccentric style with artists such as The Black Keys, The Strokes and Arctic Monkeys in mind. Forming in early 2019, Little Lazy has since released their debut single, "Daytime Shakes", and have been working on more singles to release throughout this year - most recently, "Menace". When seen live, their tunes and energy will have you clapping your hands and stomping your feet from start to finish. If you like what you hear, make sure to give them a 'Follow' on Facebook and Instagram to be in the loop for upcoming shows and new music. And as always, don't ever forget to stay L@ZY.
