Now venues are calling us to open for Los Lonely Boys, Jefferson Starship, Ozomatli, Robby Krieger, and artists that I love. It's truly a blessing.
We've toured all over California, Hawaii, completed the #RoadToTheRecords U.S. solo tour in May 2018 to Vegas, Chicago, Memphis, St. Louis, Denver and more.
I also have a passion for using my music to positively impact the world. I've got my eye on organizations who combat cancer, human trafficking, pollution, poverty, and toxins in our food supply.
I dedicated my 30-day Pacific Coast #RoadToTheRun tour to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and we plan to take on the globe in 2019!
"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).”
Comprised 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.
With seven studio albums and three full-length performance DVDs, the award-winning Travis Larson Band is firmly rooted as one of instrumental music’s premiere acts, having worked on record with Steve Lukather (Toto), Victor Wooten (Bela Fleck), Dave LaRue (Joe Satriani, John Petrucci, Dixie Dregs), Vinx (Sting, Herbie Hancock).
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.
Travis 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.
