The King of Israeli Blues, Lazer Lloyd will bring his electrifying lyrics and guitar riffs to the stage, with influence from blues, southern rock and gospel music.
Other acts hail from different parts of the U.S., Purdue Avenue of Brooklyn, an indie sensation, exploded onto the scene with their debut EP “Alone at the Bar” in 2011. Their music and stage presence has been compared to Sublime and a younger Weezer.
