"The soulful fury of this talented three-piece, the Travis Larson Band, washes the stink of the recording industry’s lame offerings out into the gutters while unleashing it’s unique brand of instrumental rock fusion (think of a musical stew mixing a thick brown Rush gravy with big hearty chunks of Steve Morse and a dash of Jeff Beck).”
of Travis Larson (guitar), Jennifer Young (bass), and Dale Moon
(drums), TLB’s complicated phrasing, impossible timing, and
seamless flow cause some to suspect that the band must surely operate
from only one, albeit enormous, brain.
Years of ambitious touring and shared live billing with notables such as Ted Nugent, UFO, Steve Morse (Deep Purple, Dixie Dregs), The Aristocrats, has established the band’s reputation for live performances that masterfully deliver full throttle rock-fusion.
Larson Band's 2011 studio release Soundmind earned accolades as
Guitar Player Magazine Editor's Top Three. Endorsement relationships
include Ernie Ball/MusicMan, Electro-Voice, Digitech, Markbass,
DV Mark,Gretsch, and Sabian.
