Larry Rossi: Home

 

 

Welcome!

"As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God." 1 Peter 4:10  

"Larry Rossi's career as a professional musician, music educator, and thought-provoking lyricist spans 41 years. He has performed for enthusiastic audiences large and small, ranging from college groups and church congregations to House Concerts, public gatherings, workshops, and service organizations. Larry’s unpretentious, easy-listening delivery, interspersed with wry observations, humorous insights, and lessons learned from a lifetime dedicated to teaching and music, appeals to listeners regardless of background or faith.

 

 

A simple and straightforward Christian message — of God’s unconditional love and of each individual’s God-given right to accept and share in that love — provides an uplifting thematic foundation for Larry’s songs. Many of his selections draw as much from his storytelling gifts as from his accomplished lyrical and musical presence. From such long-time favorites as "No Arguments, Please," "Fix One Thing" and "Grandma’s Recipe" (you can almost smell and hear the simmering spaghetti sauce) to witty, technically creative instrumental pieces like "Atonement" and "Cantaloupe Island," Larry’s stories and music weave a tapestry rich in slice-of-life insight, hope, and the real-world power of faith and commitment.

Throughout the course of his performance, Larry translates his personal experience and belief to construct a musical environment that is, at one and the same time, safe, reassuring, and fundamentally compelling. His lyrics are refreshingly free of judgment or accusation, and he never lectures. Instead, Larry speaks directly to the members of his audience as he conveys his own profound reliance on the spiritual bedrocks of family, friends, and values.

In a world that many perceive as increasingly unpredictable and insecure, Larry Rossi’s message of love, faith, and conviction is sure to bring inspiration and comfort."

LARRY ROSSI PERFORMS YEAR ROUND in different parts of the mid-west from his home in the Chicagoland area. Most sessions are solo in nature, (vocal and guitar) which makes planning for and arranging your event very easy. Since Larry is able to travel with his own PA system (if none is available), your requirements in hosting an event are very minimal.

 

 

"Can a musician bring smiles, laughter, and tears to his audience all in the same evening? Singer-songwriter Larry Rossi did... His songs were both entertaining and reflective. They touch his audience at all levels. For some, it’s pure entertainment; others, a fond memory; and still others, a connection with the divine. Whatever your response is, you will definitely walk away knowing Larry has a gift and a passion to share."
