What to Expect
Robert Larrabee is a comedic, audience interactive, full costume, tribute artist, with a big big voice! He loves people and people have been loving him for over 25 years!
When singer songwriter, and entertainer Robert Larrabee came into the world at St Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver B.C. he was born with yellow jaundice, bronchitis, pneumonia, a sty in his right eye and spent a lot of time in an oxygen tent.
But Robert overcame early adversity and left those difficulties behind to walk a country road that would pass through many towns before it brought him to a career in music.
Not that the final destination was a surprise – music has always been an important part of Robert’s life:
“It was my escape when I was small. I was the outsider, always the new kid at school – my mom was a waitress and we moved around a lot. We were never in the same town for more than a year. “But we had a record player; one of those old ones that looked like a suitcase, when you opened it up there was a turntable inside! “that's when I heard Elvis,The Beatles, Willy Nelson I would buy an album and run home to play it on the record player“ Of course there was also the radio where great artists like Roy Orbison, to Queen made an impact on me and that’s when I decided I wanted to sing.” But it would be another ten years before Robert was literally pushed in to singing in public; his preparation for that as yet undiscovered talent would be to take himself away to his bedroom or somewhere safe and quiet to sing and act: “I would get lost in a tune – I had an Elvis record and loved to sing ‘Suspicious Minds’ – and in my mind I was on stage in front of a big audience!” A prophetic comment, as it would turn out. Robert’s traumatic start to life and constant movement did make for a troubled childhood however and he left home at the age of fifteen. Yet Robert still found peace within his ever-growing appreciation for music and his love of singing was something that came naturally to the teenager. Robert’s passion became his profession five years later. At the behest of his then girlfriend and her family, Robert started singing in hotel bars and at afternoon jams sessions in Edmonton, Alberta in the late 80's and 90's, where he was living. Those appearances led to two years of talent shows until one particular performance at The Rodeo Club saw the Fisher Music Agency approaching Robert to front a group. Robert was soon cutting his touring teeth travelling across Canada as well as performing in tribute shows, including his own one-man act An Evening With The Legends. The Legends show, a great mix of talent and humor, allowed Robert to make a name for himself as not just a singer but an entertainer.
Robert now brings you Larrabee Live! decades of experience wrapped up into one fantastic new show, featuring tributes to over twenty of the biggest legendary artists of all time, and also featuring songs Robert has written with Nashvilles Jess Cates a top 40 Billboard charting songwriter, from the cd "Middle of Something"
Robert Larrabee is most definitely in the Middle of Something.
And it’s something good.

Additional Booking Notes
Ultimately a 16 x 24 ft stage with a runway coming out from stage centre 8 x 16 is the best for my Vegas style show, but I've worked on every stage dimension you can imagine so I'm used to flying by the seat of my pants.
