Dead Larry’s powerful blend of high energy rock, dance and funk shakes the foundation of modern music. From rock driven sea shanties to pulsating dance beats. From Beatle-esque harmonies to spine chilling screams. From shake-yo-booty funk jams to orchestral themes of space and time travel. Dead Larry is one thing: Original. The band was formed in a basement in high school, and after nearly 10 years of writing, touring, and chasing the dream Dead Larry has a grown to be one of the most prominent independent rock bands coming out of the Midwest.
A fusion of highly danceable rock, intricate song craftsmanship and psychedelic funk. Set out to make every show inspiring. Imagine going to a double matinee showing of Led Zeppelin & P-Funk at Dream Theater and then heading to an Amsterdam discotheque to dance until the sun came up. That's about as close as can be described without seeing Soap for yourself.
Shakedown City is a group of musicians playing a wide array of styles that interchange moment to moment throughout each song. Sonically you could describe them soulful, blues driven funk with elements of Roots Music, Jazz, R & B, and swamp boogie. A new earthy yet urbane set of sounds thats a breath of fresh air to music lovers who seek original rock n roll that teeters on expanding the genre itself.
