A Tribute to Peter Tosh

Park Place Theatre at the Mady

   Juno Award winner/Top Reggae Performer Lazo exudes a “feel-good” vibe through his combination of reggae riddims, beautiful melodies, conscious lyrics, and his uncanny ability to connect with his audience.  Lazo writes songs informed by his studies in history and political science (he holds a degree in Political Science from the University of Toronto), and his deep empathy for the human condition.

Lazarus J. Finn (Lazo) began his music career at 15 years of age with a band called Black Blood, whose very first album charted #2 and received extensive airplay in the Caribbean. Soon after immigrating to Canada, Lazo formed his own band, Unity, to showcase his original compositions. Upon relocating to Toronto, he created The Lazo Band, and released the well-received recording, “Satisfaction Guaranteed”. Lazo subsequently produced two solo CDs: “Something Real” (nominated for a Juno Award in 1995) and “Impetus”, for Washington D.C. based RAS records (Lazo was the first Canadian artist signed to that label).

In 2010, Lazo toured the United States and South America as a member of the world renowned Wailers, (Bob Marley’s original backup band featuring Aston “Family-Man” Barrett on bass, and the legendary Keith Sterling on keys.) The South American leg of the tour included African Reggae Star, Alpha Blondie.

In addition, Lazo fronts for Craig Martin’s Classic Albums Live: Bob Marley – Legend performing at venues such as Hard Rock CafeHouse of Blues, and theatres across the US and Canada. Craig recently commented to a fan, ” Lazo has always been an exception to the rule- I can’t control him, and yet I can’t see me doing the show without him.”
