An Evening of Pink Floyd
& Other Work Songs
Classic's Restaurant & Lounge • Shawano, WI • Saturday, April 26 • Music @ 9
We recently played the illustrious Classic's Restaurant & Lounge up in Shawano, WI and were treated to one of the sweetest venues we've ever had the good fortune to play! Owner Mel and the entire staff were gracious, fun and accomodating, the crowd was into the music, and we enjoyed the terriffic house sound and of course, the hip dance floor and hallway. Amazing place, guys...
Well, to make a short story longer, Mel asked us to put together a Floyd set, and we've jumped headlong to the task. We'll have about 1:30 of solid Floyd from Obscured By Clouds, Meddle, Animals, Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here and The Wall, featuring early Syd Barrett and of course Roger Water's stunning rock epic.
We'll round out the show with our album cuts and some tasty covers thrown in for good measure. So put on (and in) your BEST psychedelia, and be transported to the Floyd's quirky tales of war, madness, laundry nikkers and other fun hobbies! Kazoos and LED finger lights available at the show!!
Your presence is, of course, mandatory.

BREAKOUT MAGAZINE from Germany reviews "Eyeblinder"
Full interview coming soon!
January/February CD Review (translated from German):
"More than two decades have passed from the first steps in the late 80s, including some lineup changes until now’s release "Eyeblinder". But here we are, and The Lizardz present their debut "Eyeblinder" which is released as cd and vinyl also. Attention please: This isn’t the Southern group Lizard from Germany or the US band The Lizards. If you have a look on The Lizardz’s homepage they declare their style with many influences from The Kinks, The Who, Grateful Dead, Tom Petty or The Allman Brothers Band. This is true, and so we find on "Eyeblinder" a colorful musical journey with stops in different areas. If you listen to the album the first time this might be a little bit confusing, but the more often you listen to it, you get a great view into the Lizardz’s sound cosmos. By the way: the record was mastered at the legendary Abbey Road studios in London. There are some musical guests performing for The Lizardz: Donald "Buck Dharma" Roeser and Richie Castellano from Blue Öyster Cult, and Buck co-produced two tracks also. All in all "Eyeblinder" is a fine debut with a lot to discover." - Breakout Magazine, February 2014 issue
March/April Vinyl Review (translated from German):
"Wow, wow and again wow: an unknown band with an independent record company, but the vinyl is 180 grams. Amazing. Remember: the cd was reviewed the last issue (imports), but this high quality pressing vinyl makes it much more fun, as you you can hear now everything in the versatile Lizardz style. The groove factor is awesome, just listen to the bass. There is so much you don’t hear on the cd. Vinyl quality is perfect, no scratches between the songs and a clean middle hole. All in all the best example of how lps have to be. So I only miss one thing to be in vinyl heaven: an antistatic inner sleeve, but I don’t want to claim such a high standard because everybody who is into vinyl owns such sleeves. "Newcastle" and "Utah Moon" – such a warm sound that you have to get on analog feeling. Thanks a lot for this great musical feeling." - Breakout Magazine March 2014 issue
