I am Larry McGahey and lately have been doing instrumentals that feature the electric guitar backed by the Bugs or Snow Band. In the past I have played in a variety of bands, duos etc. including Renaissance Fair. If you have ever heard 'In Wyrd' that is my Gibson SG the first time I played it.

Why this name?
I didn't choose my name. I have never liked my name but can't think of a name I would like so I have never thought of changing it. Well actually I did think of changing it but couldn't come up with anything. This name thing has been a problem that has hounded me my whole life so thanks a lot for bringing it up. The last name is fine but how to pronounce it, like they do in Ireland, England, or Michigan? My kids pronounce it differently than I do!
Do you play live?
I played live for years all over da UP and the US mid-west now I would rather stay home and look for change in my couch. After the kids have been here I look there for the remotes as well. The special moments would be the times we were paid the amount we originally agreed upon.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
The internet gives me an outlet for the music I create so that's cool. Now if I would just do something new.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Not this week, or next week, or... This has never been a problem for me to contend with.
Band History:
I wished I had a guitar when I was 8 years old so a very nice man named Ernie Messer let me borrow one of his Gibsons. Then my mother took me to Atkinson's Music Store to see if my fingers were long enough for lessons and my Mom and Dad got me a 3/4 size Harmony. When I never practiced my lessons my Father told my Mother not to take me to have my toes measured for dancing lessons.
Your influences?
Paul Desmond (my favorite musician), Johnny Winter, Van Morrison, Robin Trower, Stephane Grappelli, Lee Ritenour, Rick Haynes, Carlos Santana, Eric Clapton, John Coltrane, Jackson Browne, David Lindley, John Mayall, John Prine, Hank Williams Sr., Homer and Jethro, Robben Ford, Gordon Lightfoot, Ray Price, Bob Dylan. I can't play, sing or write like any of these people but they are a few of the artists I have listened to over the years. There isn't enough room to really make this list for me.
Favorite spot?
Kalamazoo/Germfask (home) and the Seney National Wildlife Refuge. (outdoor home)
Equipment used:
Variax 700 Blue hard tail, POD X3 Live, Line6 M13, Orion Platinum, Sonar Producer, Sound Forge, Gibson SG, Fender Stratocaster, Fender Telecaster, Yamaha flattop with Tim Shaw pickup, J-Station, custom computer with t.c. electronic konnekt 24D.

Anything else...?
I would like to thank Laura for making my life possible and complete. Shazam!
