On the first day of Larry Miller picking up a guitar, he wrote his first ever song. Larry says "I just knew immediately this was what I was put on the planet for" and he firmly believed his future was going to be in Rock music after hearing some of the guitar greats - Jimi Hendrix, Rory Gallagher, Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Gary Moore.
“For me, my moment of inspiration was seeing Rory Gallagher live. I had never experienced anything like it. So loud, so gloriously on the edge of total mayhem, yet Rory was still totally in control. How could I not do this too! Like Rory I’d work under my own name, with a band. I’d do all the writing, singing, producing, playing and leading.”
Very quickly, Larry found his own Blues/Rock style, and has been constantly refining it. He is a guitarist, singer, songwriter, with a love for his music which is simply infectious.
Larry Miller plays Gibson Les Paul, Fender Stratocaster and Telecaster guitars through Marshall amplification. Larry says “Like many guitar greats, I have used Marshall for years as it gives me exactly what I need for my live shows and I am proud to be supported by Marshall.”

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!!
