Other Music Records in New York calls his set “a sweaty, mega-mix crash course in the hard and nasty sound of the ‘Nolia (New Orleans). Rusty Lazer ain’t for the prudes, but it’s some of the most infectious dance music you’ll ever hear if you’re not familiar.”
Rusty Lazer is a DJ from New Orleans that specializes in the street music of his adopted home town and has been touring with BIG FREEDIA the past several years. Following in the tradition of the second line parades and block parties that make New Orleans famous, Rusty Lazer spins songs from the three hundred year old repertoire of street music this decadent city has to offer. In a single set, dancers are likely to hear the hypnotic beat of the Mardi Gras Indians, Hot Jazz from the early 20th century, Twists from the 50’s, Soul and R&B from the 1960’s and 70’s, Brass Band jams stretching across all of these eras and even the modern block party sounds of Hip Hop and Bounce Music along with mash-ups of all of the above created by Rusty Lazer himself.
