Billed as 'Willie Nelson meets Prairie Home Companion' - The Bad Larrys is (or 'are'?) a multi-talented duo featuring Jay Aiken on acoustic guitar and Chris Arndt on upright bass. This incomparable duo - from right here in Bigfork, MT - is sure to please. So, what do they play? Chris Arndt says it best: “We play mostly Americana music, you know, it's… a little bit of everything from Johnny Cash, to Beyoncé, and everything in between… Lyle Lovett, you name it… pretty much anything we can get away with…”
[cue their rendition of Beyoncé's Single Ladies]
