Larry La Vey started singing songs and playing guitar in his teens and really, just about most of his life.
Raised in Northern Virginia, he has played in Clubs in and around the Washington, D.C. area for years. He plays numerous instruments, but specializes in guitar and vocals. Larry has played all kinds of music but his loves are Rockabilly, Blues, Rhythm and Blues and of course, some Southern Rock too.
Rockabilly is what Larry really loves, but you would never know he has an original song in a prime time television movie. Larry's musical goal has always been to please the general public, rather than other musicians. He played and produced a couple of albums in his musical career, and in 2000 he released "DJ....Play Me Some Blues" on LP. Songs like "Put Your Shoes On Mama" is some jumpin' Rockabilly. Radio plays of songs on his other CD Album: "Rockin' 'Till The Break Of Dawn!" have been on Radio Stations in New York, Massachusetts, California, Michigan, Florida, Georgia, Connecticut, Alabama and Virgina--and the list goes on. France and Japan are playing the songs from Larry's CD album while his next Cd Album--an All-New, All-Original, All-BLUES CD album keeps the music going strong!
In short, this guy plays a really mean guitar and his vocals always relate to the working man. Maybe that's why this CD is making new friends and really "catching on!" Recorded at Masterworks Studios, Woodridge, Virginia.

Rick Bloyer is one of the smoothist seasoned Bass Players around....He grew up playing in some of the best clubs in the 60's - 90's making a name for himself. Today, although retired from the food and beverage industry, lives in a log cabin now and he still loves to play music, while jamming his with his band mates.....
Bentley Westfield is piano icon in the music industry....having been a professional pianist in many bands over the years past, banging the ivories night after night in the club scene of the 70's and 80's. In the words and verses of the Rolling Stones, "You can't alway get what you want, but if you try sometime, you get what you need." He always wanted to play in a four piece band.......you got what you wished for Bentley.
Tom Sapp grew up playing drums in various bands in London England and continued his musical direction when he moved back to the USA to Northern Virginia in 1977. "Having started playing drums many years ago with a couple of guys from my neighborhood, the focus was on old rock n roll and fast rockin' guitar blues," Tom said.
He formed his first band in London, England at the International school he attended. The band CAJUN MOON was performing a mix of rock and roll at the time in pubs around London. After returning to the USA in 1977, Tom worked as a Radio DJ in various stations around Washington DC. and jamming with other musicians and bands on drums too. As musicians came and went, Oldies, Rockabilly and the Classic Rock music list changed and the format evolved but the goal remained the same. Just play drums!!
He's a straight ahead, in the pocket drummer, who lives by the blues and rock beats . He has been a tour drum tech for many of the best drummers in the world, including Steve Gadd (Steely Dan), Alan White (Yes), Neil Peart (Rush) and many more from working as a stage hand. He knows how to get the best out of a kit and truly loves to play.
