I am Larry Cohen and these are the road bands I traveled with from 1970 till 1981. To me this was a profession not a hobby. I worked 6 years 5 hours a night 6 nights a week 50 weeks a year. Then took a couple of years off and returned for a few more years.  There were two other bands I traveled with, during this time, but they were temporary for a few months each.

“By Appointment Only” with a few member changes became “Florida”  in 1980.

I went as far East as Cape Cod and Long Island, West as far as Phoenix, North as far as Granby, Que, and South to Puerto Rico.

I played drums local with several bands before and after the road bands and was on call by the local Musicians Union.
