Larry Lagge ~ Vocals & Lead Guitar
Larry Lagge will be warbling the words and pickin’ the strings. Larry’s fascination with country music came very early in life. At the tender age of 6, Larry’s mother, Laura started, ran and became president of Charley Pride’s first fan club. One of Larry’s prize possessions is a picture of him at 6 yrs old in his living room, watching intently as Charley Pride sat on his sofa playing and singing. With Leona Williams, mom’s best friends, it was inevitable that Larry become a county music sensation. After meeting Merle, Buck Owens & Mel Street at such a young age, Larry has always been so comfortable with the “big stars”. After finishing second at a talent contest at the age of 12, where else could he go but up. Larry was performing on stage at 13 years old. Moving to Texas during high school only strengthened his country music base. While performing under the band name Legend, Larry won the Montana State True Value Championship in in 1989. He has been a professional musician since then.
Bobby Swank ~ Drummer
Bobby Swank will be kickin’ the skins as Alibi’s percussionist extraordinaire. Bobby started drumming when he was just 16. Although he has been with blues and a littlejazz, he has returned to his roots with country. While playing for Marty Haggard, Merle Haggard’s son, he opened for Pure Prairie League, among others. When Bobby moved to Belgium he passed down his sticks to his son, who continues the drumming tradition. Even with frequent trips to Amsterdam, Roberto missed the states, moving back in 1996.
Shorty Spang ~ Bass
Shorty Spang will be slappin the bass and harmonizing with backup vocals. Shorty started his musical career while just in his teens. Shorty is one of those musicians that all bands love, being proficient on both the bass & drums, while being able to pick a little on guitar also. Makes you wonder why he has anyone else with him, well it does get lonely on stage by yourself. While playing with the Gairretts he performed on Hee Haw & Nashville Now to a national television audience. That lead to many studio sessions including playing with Montana’s own songwriter Kostas.
