Larry is a life-long resident of the Main Line and has been performing professionally for the past 38 years, beginning with the band Open Road in the early 70’s along with bandmate Brian Bricklin. Open Road appeared on TV several times in their early teens and in 1976, the band played in Villanova Stadium for the Bicentennial celebration.
In 1976, Larry became the youngest performer to headline at the Main Point in Bryn Mawr, PA, a venue where many national stars like James Taylor and Bruce Springsteen got their starts. Larry’s band also opened for several prominent recording acts including the Ozark Mountain Daredevils and John Hammond.

Larry possesses a natural gift of helping young people to become involved with music early on, as he has personally experienced how music can both change and become an intricate part of someone’s entire lifetime if given the proper guidance.
