I am Larry Cohen and these are the road bands I traveled with from 1970 till 1981. To me this was a job and a profession not a hobby. We worked 5 hours a night 6 nights a week 50 weeks a year, “By Appointment Only” with a few member changes became “Florida.” 

We 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. There were two other bands I traveled with but they were temporary for a few months each.

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