Larry Evans at nine years old begged his mother, a piano teacher herself, to learn the piano and has never stopped since. At 18 he was already playing for large crowds at the Elks Club in Michigan where he grew up. He played Friday nights with a repetoire of 52 songs memorized. At 19 Larry went to audition to accompany for a full musical production of "Carnival" The director, who was new that night, thought that Larry was the regular pianist and said "okay everyone,let's run the entire show!" Larry, being young and not knowing what an audition entailed, SIGHT READ AND PERFORMED THE ENTIRE 1 & 1/2 hour SHOW ON THE SPOT! Then when someone said to the director, "Larry just came tonight to audition," The director said "You got the job!"
At 23 Larry put himself through MSU School of Music by by playing at an upscale resaurants and piano bars on the weekends after having increased his repetoire to 220 songs.
