TJ Lazer is a Funk/R&B band from greenville, sc. Heavily influenced by the funk and R&B party bands from the 60's to the present. A host of original material, combined with a power packed list of cover material, makes TJ Lazer a force to be reconned with on the greenville scene.
TJ Lazer is fronted by R&B singer Mike Carrol, formerly of Autumns's Jones. His raspy vocals and smooth falsetto transitions keep the listeners ears perked. TJ Lazer is led by percussionist/vocalist Derek "D-Rock" Landers, who's stage presence is second to none. His thunderous conga solos, and precise auxillery percussion are a fan favorite. The rythmn section is fueled by Powerhouse Drummer Blake Farmer, a full-sail graduate in audio engineering, and the fastest hands in the upstate. San Francisco Native, Douglas Knight rounds out the permanent lineup for the band. He's a 30 year veteran of the Jazz Fusion scene. He studied/performed with Karl Denson, and brings his own unique style to the table as TJ Lazer's Premiere Soloist. Other musicians are included, as needed for show size, including Pickens County Love Machine guitarist Travis Hanson, and Niles McCall and Josh Cato of Modern Day Slave.
