Tyrant Lizard Tyrant Lizard

Tyrant Lizard is Ray Larsen (trumpet), Gregg Belisle- Chi (guitar), and Carmen Rothwell (bass). Having shared the bandstand in assorted ensembles over the years, the trio formed in early 2014 with a common interest in playing original compositions and American folk music. The band's name is a tribute to the reptilian creatures of the Cretaceous Period (circa 68-66 million years ago.)

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
