Gary Lazer Eyes
Although currently based out of Orlando, Gary Lazer Eyes was founded by three Melbourne, FL natives. Since their not-so-serious formation in 2015, this eclectic band has grown in sound and reach. After being voted Orlando’s “Best Rock Act” in Best of Orlando 2016, GLE released High On Lies. On this EP, they explore a more alternative territory, while still managing to reflect their reggae & blues rock roots.
To support the release of this project, Gary Lazer Eyes embarked on a cross country, DIY tour. Upon returning home and playing a few “welcome back to Florida” shows, the boys received a warm reception (literally- Florida boys should stay in FL during the winter). Since then, the consistent regional touring and release of new content hasn’t stopped, quickly earning GLE a reputation in the Central FL community and beyond.
For Gary Lazer Eyes, community is an essential part of their journey. The threesome (now five) solidified while collaborating on Do-It-Yourself events featuring live music, local visual artists, and fashion vendors/brands. It was out of these collaborations that GLE was born. Leaning on the idea that music is an interdependent relationship (i.e. a song is not done until some one else hears it), the goal of their musical endeavors is not simply to create, but to connect with the people around them. All this, while still managing to have an awesome time – embracing debauchery.
