Larry originally started out as background /lead singer with a high-school group called The Twisters, which then evolved into a group called The Catalinas. After winning the Battle of the Bands in Atlanta, GA, The Catalinas earned a recording and booking contract and recorded a song called “A Love Is But A Love”, which became very popular locally. The Catalinas played fraternity row at all the southern colleges. As the music scene changed, they introduced a horn section and evolved into the Easy Touch band whch entertained for over 20 years. After a seven-year retirement from the music world, Larry formed The Fabulous Boomers Band, a variety band which plays contemporary adult hits, oldies, beach, and progressive country.
Robin began playing for a small Southern church in 1974 after receiving bass guitar lessons from the Minister of Music. In that same year he was credited on his first album. This provided the impetus for continued pursuit of his craft. During his early years he performed with Southern gospel groups, including Gloryland Express and Soul Purpose. As a member of Mystery Road, Robin and his bandmates were featured entertainers for GABBAFEST for two consecutive years. While playing for various bands he opened for artists such as Marty Stuart, Dickey Betts, and Jimmy Hall. He credits James Jamerson of Motown, Randy Meisner of The Eagles and Mel Schracher of Grand Funk Railroad as his strongest musical influences. He enjoys nothing better than locking in the groove and going with the music.
Keyboard, Music Composition
I first had an interest in music at around age 12, when I taught myself “Silent Night” on an organ we had at home. I took formal piano lessons for about three years and played some at my church as a teenager. After many years of personal playing on and off I decided in my 40’s to accompany my son’s choir at our church in Macon, GA. The music director there heard one of the choir practices and asked me if I’d be interested in playing with the praise band for the contemporary service. That is when I got involved playing with various bands in the Macon area. My musical taste is varied. I tend to like individual songs even if I don’t like the group as a whole. Some of my favorite rock and pop groups are Dire Straits, Dan Fogelberg, The Beatles, The Eagles, Chicago and a bunch of other 60’s, 70’s, 80’s groups and songs. Also a bunch of the praise and worship music of the last 15 years.
Kristi has enjoyed music and singing since the age of five. Her mother calls her an “old soul” because she enjoys tunes from all the decades. At family gatherings she was part of a group of talented relatives who would be accompanied by her uncle Joe. As a student at Northside High school, she sang as part of performances in One Act, pageants, talent shows, and musicals. Her grandfather was a music minister and she has used her singing gifts to bless many people in church. She has sung at many local events, has been a worship leader as well as a member of the gospel quartet, One Voice. It is hard to pick just one favorite artist and song but one of her favorites is Reba McEntire.
