1/28/15: Larry Miller: Larry Miller started his hobby as a musician as a Folk Singer/guitarist in the early sixties. In the mid-sixties he formed a Rock band while a student at Hanover College. In 1975 he'd was a founder member of the Rhein Valley Brass at Germania Maennerchor where he still sings in the choir and performs on Euphonium. In 1984, with his friend, Gina Moore, he launched the Brown Sisters Soul Band. On December 8, 2,000, with his rock band, Electric Larry and the Current he performed a tribute to one of his musical heroes, John Lennon on the 20th anniversary of his death. This became an annual event, which is sponsored by the local chapter of Veterans For Peace.
He took up accordion more recently and occasionally plays in downtown restaurants such as Madelein's and Angelo's. And for the last several years he has put together an accordion swing band and an annual Cabaret Show. Miller will be performing music from the 20s, 30s and 40s on accordion and singing in German and English at January’s final performance.
