Larry Miller is undeniably one of the must see blues/rock guitarists, bringing his unique showmanship to every performance. He is famous for his mesmerising guitar playing and high octane shows, wowing audiences in the UK and Europe.
One of the hardest working musicians on the live music scene, he was a regular headliner at The Marquee in London and produced a barnstorming set at the Reading Festival. He is now more popular than ever and holds the record for the most encores at the Cambridge Rock Festival. Reviewing the festival the Get Ready To Rock journalist said “Crowd reaction to his performance was ecstatic ...Joe Bonamassa watch out, there's another new blues hero snapping at your heels”.
In ‘Classic Rock Presents The Blues’ magazine readers’ poll, Larry Miller was voted number three, only to be beaten by Joe Bonamassa and Walter Trout, plus a five page article proclaimed Larry Miller was “Keeper of the British Blues Rock flame”.
If you like Rory Gallagher, Joe Bonamassa, Gary Moore, Walter Trout or Jimi Hendrix, you want to see Larry Miller. This is where blues meets rock.
They came to dance, blues, boogie and fill your hearts with riff driven stoner rock and jam filled inspiration. 5 years on they have established themselves as the most intense rock/blues power trio on the live circuit, taking their lead from Kossoff/Winwood and The GRATEFUL Deadand relocating their inspired grooves from the paddle steamers of New Orleans to the UK and on to another level. Probably the best underground band on the circuit bar none, the 5 years have gone in a flash, but quality music does that to you!!
