Lazy Fifty are a tight three piece band based in Tairāwhiti-Gisborne, Aotearoa Newzealand, with Adrian Athy on lead guitar/vocals, Ali Sochacki on drums and Ryan Ragget on bass guitar/vocals. Their music harks back to 70's classic rock and British blues enhanced with a healthy dose of funk, rocking rhythms and impressive guitar.
The name Lazy Fifty comes from the saying of an old friend. When he asked you for a 'lazy twenty' (dollars), you knew you'd never see the money again. That was a long time ago, and our friend is no longer with us. In memory of him, and allowing for inflation, we are now 'Lazy Fifty'.
