South African psych-rock band The Tazers has its roots stuck in the ‘70s while incorporating modern sounds and structures. This trio packs a high-energy performance that captivates their audience with fuzz tones, vocal harmonies, and powerful drum rolls. You can expect fans to dance, jump, shove, sing and even start a mosh during a live performance. The Tazers know how to entertain.
The Tazers include members Jethro Lock (guitar, vocals), Tim Edwards (drums, vocals) and Guido Assmann (bass, vocals). The band was formed in 2013 when frontman Jethro wanted to channel ‘electric’ energy into his song-writing. In 2015 the band needed a bassist when a friend of Jethro recommended that Guido fill the role. The band asked Guido to join a practice and the rest is history. The current trio has played an instrumental part of the bands’ direction and achievements thus far.
The Tazers have been extremely active over the past 5 years. They have released 3 EP’s and a full-length album, which has led them to become one of SA’s leading psych-rock bands. The band has played all the biggest music festivals and venues South Africa has to offer. The Tazers were nominated for ‘Best Rock Album’ at the 2020 South African Music Awards (SAMAs) and received multiple film accolades & nominations for their music video ‘Plastic Kids’.
Although this three-piece fuzz band has accomplished a lot over the years, the truth is… The Tazers have only just begun.
