Biography

Larry was born and raised in Beaumont, Texas. He began playing guitar at the age of 9. He wanted to be a country singer when he first started but that all changed when his older brother introduced him to the music of Jimi Hendrix and Beatles. He wanted to make those funny sounds and learn how to bend the strings like he heard on those mystical records. So he started to study the likes of Hendrix, B.B. King, Albert Collins, Lightning Hopkins, Freddie King and John Lee Hooker. During his school years, when people would ask him what he wanted to do, he said "I wanna be a traveling musician and live on the highway, playing my guitar all over the world." After high school, he bounced from band to band until settling for a while with Mike Buller's band. During this stint with Mike, Larry really had the opportunity to constantly work on his technique and tone.

Since then, he has put together a band of his own with James "Wham" Davis on bass and Larry Gregory on drums. The trio is really making a name for themselves around the Southeast Texas area playing at events like biker rallies, many area venues and two memorable performances at The Beaumont Blues Festival.

Larry has had the opportunity to play with and learn from local greats like Scott McGill and Kenny Wiebusch and many more. He recently opened for The Kentucky Headhunters.

When Larry plays, he puts his heart and soul on the line. As he says, "When I'm on stage, I give it 200%, I play like there's no tomorrow and play like it's my last time, every time." His stage persona is influnced by the great performances of Buddy Guy, Kiss, Garth Brooks, Jimi Hendrix, B.B. King and others.

Larry is well on his way to a promising career, don't miss a chance to see him live, you will not regret it. In addition to Southeast Texas venues, you can catch his show around Houston at The Big Easy, Cosmo's, The Hideaway, Shakespeare's Pub and Einstein's Pub.

Larry Tillery will also headlined the UBN/Beaumont Live Spring Music Festival March 31, 2007 @ Rocky's Roadhouse in Beaumont, TX as well as other scheduled events at The Vortex, Changing Times and The Logon Cafe.
