Members Of Band

Larry Pless, Al Perrotta


The L.A. Experience uses powered PA speakers so that the mix can be run in stereo and each speaker can be EQed for the best sound. Al Perrotta plays a 5 string Rouge bass through a Acoustic amp head which is also ran through the PA. Larry Pless uses several different guitars on stage; Bread love Pro d-25 acoustic, Lag acoustic/electric, Alvarez 12 string, Alvarez classical guitar. A foot drum is incorporated into the mix and a special microphone allows the harmonica to stand out in the mix.
