Every U.S. city is chock-full of cover bands, all of which specialize in a specific genre, decade, style, etc. But when was the last time you went to hear a cover band that didn’t include “Don’t Stop Believin'”, “Brown Eyed Girl”, and “Uptown Funk” in their setlist? You’d probably hard-pressed to find one. Enter, St. Louis, Missouri’s Proud Larry. Proud Larry consists of a group of experienced musicians whose goal is to play music that people can not only dance to and enjoy, but that they don’t hear every other cover band in town performing.


Proud Larry incorporates into their playlist a wide variety of music from the past to present, with a focus on ’90s alternative hits that your mind may have otherwise put on the back burner. Longtime friends and colleagues Brian Schaeffer, Jeff Nations, Brad Wood, and Chuck Williams pride themselves on an upbeat, nostalgic songlist that is guaranteed to put feet on the dance floor and hearken listeners back to the days of their favorite tunes of the last four decades. Dust off your CDs, cassettes and vinyl, and get ready for your new favorite cover band: Proud Larry.
