Gold Standard

If you've seen my schedule you know that I've been performing on occasions with the above trio that includes Larry Buck and Dave Gladding, also known as the "Gold Standard".

Larry Buck is a Blues singer from New Orleans. He plays piano with one hand and bass with the other. His smoky voice will remind you of Louie Armstrong. Especially on his New Orleans Medley which includes "What a Wonderful World" and "When the Saints go Marching in".
Dave Gladding is a drum teacher and has played in multiple bands including "The Larks" and "Dark Gold Jazz". The trio is performing a mix of Blues, and classic R&B (Stevie Wonder, Aretha, Beatles, Tina Turner, Billy Joel, Ray Charles) with Larry and Pam switching off on leads and harmonies.
