Just back from an amazing vacation in Italy! My first visit to Europe starting in Rome then to Naples, to the Amalfi Coast - Positano, Sorrento, Amalfi, then to the city of Pompay and a week in Sicily where the pic above was taken next to an ancient outdoor stadium. All in all an amazing trip. It stirred up my Italian heritage a bit and may generate some future songs. If you want to see some pics of my travels, check out my facebook page here and scroll down until you find them. Oh, and don't forget to friend me while you are there! The next few months I'll be performing some of my regular favorite venues as well as some new ones including the Rockfish Restaurant in Anacortes, WA. Wishing you a haunting Halloween and a very thankful Thanksgiving! Hope to see you sometime in the coming weeks. Larry :) Please vote for my band "Second Wind Band" in King 5's Best of The Northwest Contest. We came in first last year thanks to your votes and hope to land in the top three again this year. Second Wind is another musical project that I've been involved with since 1986. We play as a ten piece band (with a five piece horn section) as well as a six piece band and specialize in weddings and corporate events. We've played for governors, Husky football coaches, the richest man in the world and the Goodwill Games. I sing lead and rhythm electric guitar. Just go here and hit the vote button and thanks in advance!!

Greetings! Ah yes, Summer is here! Finally! This July and August are the busiest I've ever had with a wide variety of shows all around Washington State. Big thanks to all who came out to the Bruce Cockburn Tribute at Egan's on June 28th. We had so much fun that we are going to perform the whole show at the Antique Sandwich in Tacoma on July 27th. Proceeds will go to my friend Chris Anderson who is suffering from chronic health issues and cannot perform as much as he would like. He will hopefully be playing a song, or two at the show. Some new shows and several old haunts in the line up in the coming weeks. I hope you can make it out to a show, or two. Hope all is well in your world. Keep smiling! Larry
