Larry Thompson 604-837-1538 “Willy and The Poor Boys” A TRIBUTE TO CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL You'd never know the difference when you see this band. Come relive the magic of the 60's and early 70's with the ultimate tribute to one of the most influential and popular bands of all time, Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR). Larry Thompson has drawn on a variety of influences to forge his compelling vocal style and solid bass playing. From CCR to James Brown to George Jones, Larry has done it all. He has been heard playing with Bryan Adams, Dr. Hook, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, The Animals and on numerous sessions and jingles. The creation of Willy And The PoorBoys in 1985 was a natural step in Larry's career, owing to both his uncanny resemblance to CCR's John Fogerty and his "sound-a-like" voice. Composed of equal parts spirit , grit and conviction Larry's playing and strong soulful voice are the perfect combination to lead this Canadian tribute to Creedence Clearwater Revival. Rob Walker is one of the original members of “Willy and The Poor Boys”, since the band’s conception in the mid-eighties. Rob plays keyboards, guitar, violin, and harmonica. Rob’s touring days have taken him across Canada and to Europe, performing with such acts as The Marlaine Sisters and The Roosters. For the past 25 years he has been playing steadily with various dance groups in and around the Vancouver area. As the group’s rhythm guitar player, Rob’s contribution is an integral part of the “Willy and The Poor Boy’s” authentic sound. Todd Taylor is no stranger to Canada's west coast music scene. In demand as a singer/ songwriter and guitarist, Todd's musical resume includes years with the much acclaimed Two Trains and Brickhouse. He is currently kept busy working as one of Vancouver's most recorded blues guitarists. Having "cut his teeth" on the music of CCR, Todd brings authority and authenticity to Willy And The PoorBoys. Christian Volkaert discovered his passion for music as a young boy who graduated, with honors, from The London Conservatory of music, and started teaching at the tender age of 15. This 2 time Juno nominee (with MRB), has played on innumerable albums and in front of such Dignitaries as Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, Princess Ann and Captain Mark Phillips. Christian has played across Canada, In Europe and The United States, and he enhances the band with his energetic style and hip grooves.
