Throughout George's career, he has performed with world-renowned artists such as John Lee Hooker Jr. and shared the stage with household names like Lenny Kravitz and Z.Z. Top. He has also achieved recording credits on a Grammy nominated album. The George Lacson Project entices listeners’ ears with powerful, inspired music that’s built around a backbone of strong musicianship.
"Funky describes the beat, tastefully contrapuntal, blending the hot/innovative rhythms of St. Louis Bassplayer George Lacson...The crowd, a true eclectic San Francisco mix, collectively moved to the ever changing rhythms...the tunes were well constructed, a sign of musicianship not always found in a funk band. The show was over too soon." - SF Bay Times
