Take the country-blues of Hank Williams and mix in the harmonies of the Everly Brothers. Then add a blend of the Americana sound of the Band and John Prine, combined with the original tunes of frontman Thomas Oliver, and you have the Lazaretto Creek Band.
A mix of folk and country, blues and swing. Original and classic.
Even when performing well-known covers, the Lazaretto Creek Band brings its own soulful interpretations. This isn’t a cover band, mimicking another’s sound.
Known for tight three-part harmonies, the Lazaretto Creek Band also spotlights multi-instrumentalists Chip Zulliger (lead guitar, resonator, bass, banjo and keyboards) and Craig Anderson (lead guitar, bass, mandolin).LazarettoCreekBandLogo_Patch
Thomas’ songwriting has been described by Connect Savannah as “pure left of center Americana.”
The Savannah Morning News wrote: “…singer-songwriter Oliver knows how to hook you with a punchy line.”
Red Line Roots, in a highly favorable review, wrote: “…in a world of people trying to make country music and falling short, [Thomas Oliver] soars high above the competition.”
