The Lazaretto Creek Band is a country-blues, Americana band based around the songs of Thomas Oliver.
Mixing in well-known covers from Hank Williams Sr., the Everly Brothers, the Band and John Prine, the Lazaretto Creek Band also highlights masterpieces from important songwriters like Townes Van Zandt, Tom Waits and John Hiatt.
But even when performing covers, the Lazaretto Creek Band brings its own soulful interpretations. This isn’t a cover band, mimicking another’s sound.
Known for tight three-part harmonies, the Lazaretto Creek Band also spotlights multi-instrumentalists Chip Zulliger (lead guitar, resonator, bass, banjo and keyboards) and Craig Anderson (lead guitar, bass, mandolin).
Thomas’ songwriting has been described by Connect Savannah as “pure left of center Americana.”
The Savannah Morning News wrote: “…singer-songwriter Oliver knows how to hook you with a punchy line.”
Red Line Roots, in a highly favorable review, wrote: “…in a world of people trying to make country music and falling short, [Thomas Oliver] soars high above the competition.”
