Taylor Bays and the Laser Rays have been paying their dues with their eclectic signature brand of rock and roll since mid-2009. Already having gone through some line-up changes, the Laser Rays play songs that could easily have a multitude of arrangements and instrumentation. Frontman Taylor Bays, taking as much influence from cartoons and old-school video games as he does from other musicians, describes the band's sound as "weirdo rock". It's apparent, once you meet the guys in the band, that, far from upholding a rock star credo, the Laser Rays really are just a collection of amiable nerds. One of the band's standout qualities is the silent tributes that they give to their influences, which range from 70's classic and punk rock to 90's alternative rock. A true-blue collection of guys that are as hyped about the bands that influence them as they are their own. Known for their energetic live shows and occasional oddball covers, Taylor Bays and the Laser Rays have become a whole 'nother thang. Go see them live and you'll see for yourself.
