Larry Raspberry And The Highsteppers says
Larry Raspberry was born and spent most of his life in Memphis. The music of that city which influenced the world also influenced Larry.

In 1965 Larry was the leader and lead singer on the #4 hit record record KEEP ON DANCIN' by The Gentrys on MGM Records.

Larry was on the first white rock acts on Memphis-based STAX record in the 1970s and went on to release an LP on Mercury Phonogram in 1980. Since that time he has had 4 more LP releases on Intense Records and Tapes and an archival LP release and The Gentrys.

Larrys write most of his own songs and has has his matieral recorded by Carly Simon, The Everly Brothers, Jimmy Buffett, and Carl Perkins.

Larry's live show is of such high energy and quality that on two past New Year's Eves he has been the entertainment for John Cougar Mellencamp and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers's private parties. Larry still tours all over the US.

Larry is a rare authentic representation of the Memphis Rock-N-Roll music maker. His style combines the fundmental fire of Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard, and the subtle sounds of Memphis R&B. With a band of some of the most adept and talented musicians available, Larry's sound and material and his live show remain uniquely current and energy laiden.
