The Virginia Gentlemen consists of a few members of The Candy Snatcher family. They each moved to New York in separate years but all grew up in Virginia Beach, Virginia. We originally started just jamming around and switching instruments but quickly realized that Larry had a really cool left handed style of playing drums. He was already doing vocals in a couple of bands so he strayed away from taking on that duty. We did a bunch of shows in New York City and along the East Coast. The band recorded a self titled record and a full length LP.

Usually the band is too drunk to play by the time of their set, so the sets were quite short. Larry isn’t well suited in bringing drum gear and all the members have other music engagements so we don’t play many shows.
