Enter Blues and Lasers...electric sonic brainchild of Scott Tournet, guitarist/vocalist/songwriter, impassioned by big beat, guitar-heavy, swampy, reverbadelic walls of sound that focus on present time chaos. On break from touring with Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Tournet pulled together four players who not only assist in completing this vision, but morph it into a larger, if not more poignant entity. Mastering the elusive low end pulse is John Rogone (aka, Johnny Solid), a finger bass guitarist, backing vocalist and java hustler. Driving and grounding the rhythm section are drummers Steve Sharon, (aka, VC Steve) & fellow Grace Potter and the Nocturnals mustached drummer, Matt Burr (aka, Croache). Contributing songs, vocals, and guitar is Ben Yurco, a sorcerer of electric tree and dimed out fender amplifiers. Together, these five players create a thick rogue wave of sound that can knock you on your ass...or carry you away on an unwavering unicorn of majestic light.
Whichever you prefer.
