One of the band’s Boomers, Larry played with his first band--The Swingin’ Knights, a grade school swing band--while in third-grade. He played his first professional gig at the age of 14 in a club combo with an older group of musicians.

In the late ’70s and into the ’80s, Larry formed Mystic then Special FX both of which that specialized in Top 40 contemporary music. After a brief hiatus, Larry joined Blues Lifters, which later became the nucleus for the popular Fertile Soil, which played numerous wineries and outdoor events throughout southern Illinois and southeast Missouri.

“I love most kinds of music, but my biggest influences are the Beach Boys for their harmonies, Buddy Rich for his incredible drumming style, drummer Hal Blaine, who performed on practically every pop song I learned while growing up, and Richard Ward, my school band teacher who got me started on this road.

“David, Kenny, and Bailey are a lot of fun to work with because we are all on the same page and share the same goal--keeping our audience entertained.”
