Spoon Too Soon

Acoustic trio of Bob & Lenore Yocum and myself.  Hardly acoustic with drums, bass, and guitar! Since 2012 the three have been playing a unique blend of Americana, roots, country, folk, as well as original compositions by Bob Yocum that are quite good.

Larry Kadlub

Since 1998, Larry Kadlub still sings and plays acoustic rock; classic rock, variations of soft, country, alternative, and contemporary rock cover songs.  "Everything is live - there's no pre-recorded accompaniment.  And still fun after all these years."

Always involved with different projects, at different times, but currently playing bass and singing with "Spoon Too Soon".  "Those Guys" is an acoustic duo, featuring great songs with lots of vocals.  I also do fill-ins for other bands.

Those Guys

Acoustic duo of Armand Cadieux & myself.  Classic & contemporary rock, but acoustic orientated.  Our regular venues are in Mentor, Painesville & Geneva.  The duo features strong harmonies, tight acoustic guitars & cool hats.

What's New

The Abbey Rodeo project is finally drawing to a close.  Friday, Sept 15 will be my last night.  Since February of 2015, I've been playing bass with the band.  The original intent was to fill in for my very good friend Fred Grupe.  During that time Fred had a series of setbacks followed by brief periods of recovery.  He's a fighter.  I was hoping that he would eventually make a full recovery and resume his position with the band.  But he ended up having only brief recoveries.  In 2017 he decided that he would not make it back to a full time position.  I became the bass player by default.

I had a great time with the band.  It was a lot of work, but lot's of fun.  But it's time to move on.  Good luck to Abbey Rodeo.
