Larry Disalvi – Decades of Accomplishment and Still Going Strong 

larry dupreesMusician Larry Disalvi may be best known for his work with the Duprees a few decades ago, but this solid performer is still going strong.  While Larry Disalvi is justifiably proud of his work with the iconic doo-wop group, his true passion is finding new fans in unexpected places.  Larry has always been a consummate musician and stellar performer, and he really enjoys displaying his talents to new audiences night after night.  While he still enjoys singing a Duprees song from time to time, he prefers making his own new music and delighting fans from many different generations.

In fact, when Larry Disalvi performs he often sees a range of ages in the audiences.  It is not unusual for men and women who grew up bopping to the music of The Duprees to bring their grown children, and even their grandchildren, out to see the man who started it all.  That kind of atmosphere is always a delight for Larry, and he revels in the new fans he has found in his hometown and around the world.  One of the things that has always set Larry Disalvi from many of his peers is his huge musical range. Larry is no one-trick pony, and he is just as at home in a smoky bar as he is in a majestic old theatre.  No matter what the venue, Larry Disalvi is able to tailor his show to the place and the audience.  The famous track “Show Boat” of Duprees was a major hit which still rule many hearts.

On one night, one might see Larry Disalvi singing his favorite swing tunes at the oldest theatre in town.  The next night he might be reprising his work with The Duprees at a crowded bar or dance club.  Like many performers who are best known for their association with a famous band, Larry Disalvi has worried about being pigeonholed as a member of The Duprees.  Unlike some other performers, however, Larry has been able to move past that association and enjoy great success on his own terms.

In fact, many of Larry Disalvi’s most ardent fans remember dancing to the beautiful sound of “Magic Lady” at their own weddings.  Even all these years later, this iconic tune is still one of the most frequently requested tunes at his live performances.
