The South African psych-rock band The Tazers have their roots in the 70s and incorporate modern sounds and structures. This trio offers a high-energy performance that captivates their audience with fuzz sounds, vocal harmonies, and powerful drum rolls. The Tazers include Jethro Lock (guitar, vocals), Tim Edwards (drums, vocals), and Guido Assmann (bass, vocals). The band was formed in 2013 when frontman Lock wanted to incorporate "electric" energy into his songwriting. In 2015, the band needed a bassist when a friend of Lock’s recommended that Assmann take on the role. The band invited Assmann to a rehearsal, and the rest is history. The current trio has played a crucial role in the band's direction and successes to date.
Over the last 5 years, the Tazers have released 3 EPs and an album, making them one of the leading Psych-Rock bands in South Africa. They have played at every major music festival and venue South Africa has to offer, were nominated for Best Rock Album at the 2020 South African Music Awards, and received several film awards and nominations for their music video “Plastic Kids.” And they are just getting started…
Tickets are CHF 25 in advance and CHF 30 at the door.
