|Lazlo Hollyfeld formed in the winter of 2001 in a small room in the heart of downtown Buffalo, NY. Bassist Chris Gangarossa and keyboardist Scott Molloy began it all by trying to focus on creating a purely instrumental sound based on the ideas of simplicity, improvisation, and dominant rhythms and textures. After several months of writing new original material, guitarist Jeff McLeod was added to the mix. And, drummer, Matt Felski. The result was the creation of a new original instrumental quartet rooted in the ideals of post-rock, breakbeat, ambience, and free improvisation.
Since the begining of 2003, Lazlo Hollyfeld has performed hundreds of shows, expanding its repoitoire of original music and constantly creating new sounds in the live atmosphere. This year Lazlo has shared the stage with DJ Logic, Arrested Development, The Slip, Mogwai, Project Object, John Brown's Body, Schleigho, the Twinemen, Mecca Bodega, Ulu and The Rapture, to name a few. The goal continues to be creating new sounds and ideas on stage as well as in the studio. With the first studio release 'Our Universe is Feeding' the band expanded it's creative outlets offering music to a wider audience. Lazlo Hollyfeld continues to push the musical boundaries of their creations while continuously generating new ideas, sounds, and experiences for anyone who takes the time to listen.
