Larry Crowley’s musical roots began in his living room in Maine, rehearsing with his father’s country bands. When he landed his first professional gig, he was only 9 years old. Standing on a milk crate, he belted out “Folsom Prison Blues”. Before Crowley got out of highschool he formed a band that over the years would know no boundaries. Larry and his band would make their way into the top spot in 3 states, and share the stage with The Outlaws and Chubby Checker. It was then that he was first called Larry “Rock-n-Roll” Crowley. It would not be the last.
Yes, Larry "Rock-n-Roll" Crowley would find himself playing guitar for Jimmie Rodgers (Honeycomb, Kisses Sweeter Than Wine)a number one song on all charts.
Then as bandleader for country music’s “21st Century Marty Robbins," Royal Wade Kimes, he has shared a lot of big stages with the likes of Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood, Little Big Town, Deana Carter, The Bellamy Brothers, and Ted Nugent. Being able to span both worlds of country and rock gives you the idea this cat is capable of doing anything, and do it well. You can also find Larry’s distinctive rhythms behind Garth Brooks and Danny Davis on selected Royal Wade Kimes CDs. He’s even made an appearance on the Grand Ole Opry stage with gospel legends Legacy Five.
The second song he wrote with Kimes charted Billboard. Then he had a European Top-5, then another that climbed all the way up to # 4 in the Netherlands.
Crowley has worked and played with the biggest and best in the business, and from Beal Street in Memphis to the Blowout in Cadot, WI. LC is given respect when he is about to bend the strings on a bright lit stage.
