Blue Lizard is made up of 2 cousins, Ryan Lamon and Mikey O’Connor, and two great friends, Josh Lang and Joey Wamsley. At the ages of just 10 and 7, Ryan and Mikey started playing guitar together. After years of jamming together- and both eventually learning the drums- they wanted to bring their love of music to a whole new level. Luckily, Ryan found Joey Wamsley. For about 3 years they did not have a singer and only jammed instrumentally- which is why they sound so tight in the rhythm section.
With the influences of STP, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Helmet, Alice in Chains, Sum41 and Incubus, the band really puts out a classic, in your face, type of sound. The vocals are raw, the guitar riffs are classic, and the drums are so naturally played with influences from Bonzo, Ward, and many other awesome jazz drummers.
Blue Lizard has been playing many gigs around New Jersey including spots like The Stone Pony, Mexicali Live, The Brooklyn Bar, Dingbatz, Lido Bar, and many other street gigs and parties. We are looking to get our music way past local venues and start getting gigs out of state. Our music brings back a 70’s meets 90’s/00’s feel and we think it doesn’t sound like any band before us but takes so many influences from all of the greats.
