For more than two decades, award-winning Missoula-based guitarist, singer-songwriter and composer, John Floridis has been performing his unique mix of bluesy, folk-rock vocal tunes with adventurous solo acoustic guitar compositions. John is also producer and host of Montana Public Radio’s weekly feature Musician’s Spotlight.
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…”
