The newly formed Larry Amos Band consists of three core members (Larry, Bruce and Malcolm) who have a colourful history of working together in various forms during the past forty years. With the addition of David Goldberg as a 'guest' this four piece promises to to 'shake up' the SA music scene.

LARRY AMOS
Songwriter, singer, guitarist, music producer, South African “Legend”
A unique and highly versatile talent – Larry Amos is held in highest regard by his faithful fans and fellow musicians, and best explained by them...
"The finest blues guitarist, vocalist and composer in South Africa... a national treasure!" - George Worthmore, owner of the Blues Room, Johannesburg.
Larry Amos has been playing guitar almost all his life and his love and gift of music is evident in the wide range of industry experience that he has gathered over the years. Just one of his most notable projects was Baxtop, formed in Johannesburg with Larry, Tim Parr, Fuzzy Marcus and Bruce Williams. Baxtop was billed as 'the best blues-rock-boogie band and "Work it out" – their debut album - is rated as one of the Top Ten Albums of South Africa.
After Baxtop, Larry formed the Larry Amos Blues Project followed by "Larry Amos and the Naughty Boys". In 1994 he released R.A.W.; a self-published co-operative effort with Bruce Williams. A 1995 highlight was opening for "Crosby, Stills and Nash", with Tim Parr. Amos was personally complimented by Stills and Crosby for his song, "Let the Sun".
There are so many notable career highlights, too many to mention here. Larry has performed at virtually every music venue in every major centre across South Africal. During 2001, Amos headlined at "Blues in the Berg" and performed at The South African Music Week. He also ran the King Prawn from 2001 to 2005, a restaurant and music venue on the KZN South Coast. During 2002 Larry was one of the opening acts for "Saffire - the Uppity Blues Women" from the USA at the Oude Libertas theatre in Stellenbosch.
His solo album, “Versatility” was launched in 2008 and other career highlights were composing and guitar, in conjunction with Louis van Rensburg, for the soundtrack of SABC TV’s “It’s Raining” as well as his music featuring regularly on their series “Going Nowhere Slowly”.
Amos says, “Now I’m in a place where I want to reinvent myself, do another album and make some videos to put on YouTube. My fans are always asking for those! And I want to tour with a show.”
Clearly Larry Amos endures as one of the most exciting musicians and veteran performers South Africa has ever produced. Having busied himself exclusively with music for more than half a century it’s safe to say a “national treasure”, indeed.

BRUCE WILLIAMS
Bruce is an accomplished musician, sound engineer and producer who enjoys the combination of working in his studio recording bands and performing at live gigs.
He began his musical journey at the age of four studying classical piano under Isadore Epstein in Johannesburg. At the age of thirteen he discovered Led Zeppelin and Rock and Roll and found himself naturally drawn to playing the drums.
During compulsory army training Bruce auditioned on piano and was accepted into the Entertainment Group to complete his service. It was there that he began to take drumming more seriously and on completion of his service bought himself his first (Ludwig Octa-plus) drum kit.
In 1978 Bruce became the drummer for the ‘number one blues rock band in South Africa’, Baxtop, alongside Larry Amos, Bernhard Marcus and Tim Parr. Baxtop produced hits such as Jo Bangles and Night Time Train.
In 1982 he joined the band Tribe After Tribe with Larry’s brother (Robbi Robb). Tribe performed live in South Africa and penned a number one radio hit with a cover of Bob Dylan’s (As I Went Out One Morning). The band was signed to EMI and in 1986 went to Los Angeles where they performed at many of the legendary venues such as Whiskey a Go Go and Madame Wongs.
Bruce returned to South Africa in 1991 and in 1992 joined Larry Amos once more to produce the album R.A.W for BMG. During the following ten years Bruce worked at Shandel Music until he managed to acquire his own studio equipment and designed and built his own professional recording studio in Johannesburg.
He formed Mighty Music Productions and recorded and or produced many of SA’s top artists such as Gang Of Instrumentals, Lebo Mathosa, Mandoza, Rebecca Malope, Brenda Fassie and Marc Alex to name a few. He also composed and produced music for television for which he received SAFTA awards for two years in a row.
In 2012 he joined The Vans playing drums with Steve Van, Peter Stein and Tim Parr. He also produced and recorded their debut album. In 2013 he relocated to Cape Town where he was recruited by Jackenory to play drums on their debut album ‘Story Time”.
Bruce has been endorsed by a number of South Africa’s music distributors as a reseller and product specialist for music software and hardware.
Since moving to Cape Town in 2013, Bruce has enjoyed being part of the live music scene and has played for The Vans, Jackanory, Tim Parr’s Greenworld Kollective and David Goldberg, as well as recording and producing much of their material.
He recently recorded and produced an album for the Cape Town based rock band Crooked.

MALCOLM ABERDEIN
“Mally” is a Bass Guitarist/ Percussionist, originally from Johannesburg, now based in Cape town. He has been playing Bass for most of his life. In the ‘80s in Johannesburg he played in “Original” bands with Larry Amos, Wendy Oldfield and The Spectres. Relocated to Cape Town in ’91 and performed with N’Goi, an Afro Funk Fusion band, who were active on the national festival circuit. At this time he was also busy with Ronnie Domp’s Swing the Cat and various other cover bands on the local scene. Malcolm also ventured into the world of Live and Studio sound engineering, mixing many live gigs and producing albums and Radio/TV commercials.

DAVID GOLDBERG
David has been playing piano/keyboards and singing professionally for the last 15 years.
Born in JHB he grew up in Rockey Street (Cutting his musical teeth)
As always his career started on the original scene, playing for various bands.
He has played on numerous albums and produced some of them . https://soundcloud.com/dawie-goldberg
David currently performs every Friday in Long Street at Kennedy’s Cigar bar (the Dubliner). He also performs with various other artists depending on the requirements of the gig. So quite often he guests with The Larry Amos Band. His repertoire consists of many different styles and genres but is always vibrant intimate and filled with soul. He was the keyboardist for the original outfit THE Black Bear Band, Ellamental and currently Tim Parr's Band (Greenworld Kollective). David will take you on a musical journey featuring much of his original work and some awesome adaptions of cover songs to which he adds his own special flavour.
