Time for something a little different.
For years Ruari Lazers has been working his magic behind the scenes with PK Sound, making our festivals and many local events sound phenominal, humbly working hard well before and after the shows. But he's also a phenominal drummer, and has a unique and mesmerizing
live performance using effects, loops, beatboxing and drumming and more, all on the fly.
Curious? You should be, and this is your chance to see it first hand.

A high energy and dynamic combination of live drumming, beat boxing, banjo playing, flute blowing, cow bell ringing and midi controlling LAZERS is reshaping the landscape of live electronic performances.
LAZERS brings a fresh approach to the laptop saturated scene of today’s electronic market. LAZERS performs on an acoustic drum kit with a loop pedal while beat boxing into a distortion-laden microphone as he manipulates the sounds with a touchpad midi controller called a Kaoss Pad. No pre-recorded material is used, and everything is created live and in real time in front of the audience, who he takes on a mind-bending journey from dumbstruck to dancing and back again.
The man behind the live electronic madness that is LAZERS is constantly evolving his one-man, live performance setup in order to challenge himself and create a truly live—and unpredictable—acoustic-electronic experience.
