Hazer is a classic rock band that you can easily dance to and get every party started. We are a cover band that prides ourselves on the ability to play unique, popular songs, but also add our own "twist" to the songs to keep them fresh and fun. Hazer has been playing private functions and clubs in the Finger Lakes and Rochester area since 2000 to audiences of all ages with decent success!
Hazer was formed out of the now defunct Hayes Brothers Band formed in the late 70's. Lyle Boni and George Hayes founded the band and when George left about 10 years ago, Lyle forged on taking bassists Joe Sofia with him. Recent acquisitions of keyboardist Jason and Lyle's son Ian make Hazer a very talented and universal line-up. The current drummer was added 3 years ago.
