About Lazarus Johnston
Established in 2023 however, going a good 5 years back, Lazarus Johnston was discovered. Through the late poker nights on a mountain top in the Eastern Cape, Lance soon discovered Lazarus, a poker term used when having your last bet on the table and pulling a miraculous comeback and winning the pot. This term was often used for Lance, the youngest member at the table. However, the story doesn’t end there, with the copious amounts of crafted beer and blues rock playing in the background. Johnston strung a tune of its own. During those memorable nights, Lance would walk back through the forests to get home, soon discovering this strange entity. A strange shadowy female figure. This wasn’t the first or the last Lance would see this figure. Through the craftsmanship and experimentation, Lance endured through music, more and more did this entity join in. Sooner or later the music found its way and fellow musicians joined this style of music. The band was formed and she soon appeared. This mysterious entity guides and toys with the band, sometimes spoiling their practices or toying with her curiosity among the members. The band dubbed her Lazarus Johnston and is a proud East Rand band, their music flows from Acid rock, pirate shanties, and weird stories. The band’s concrete influences thrive from The Doors, Deep Purple, and Uriah Heep.
