Still working on that hot first release.



"Larry" is Mat Poland, who plays guitar and sings. "Betty" is Joni Fox, who plays bass and sings. We play original rock music. Our primary influences are from the alternative / punk / new scene in New Haven, CT. of the late 70's and early 80's, which Mat was part of. It was a wonderful time of lots of different kinds of original music. 

Some of the original music that we play was written by Mat's best friend, Ron Hopkins, who passed away in 2005. A big part of the purpose of Larry and Betty is to keep Ron's music alive. His influence is reflected in some of Mat's music as they played together for over 30 years. Mat and Joni have played in working bands over the years but have decided to pursue original music because it's just more fun. 

We have primarily been playing the open mic circuit in Southern Maine and as time has passed, we are better and better known. It's kind of fun to walk in a club and hear someone we don't know holler "hey, it's Larry and Betty" or "Are you going to play Irena", which is one of our more popular songs. Our goal is to get gigs opening up for regional touring acts and / or having our original music published.
