Regarded as the ”renaissance man” of the Midwest music scene, Larry Buck has spanned the generations as a performer, entrepreneur, and promoter.
In over 50 years, Mr. Buck continues to be an influence to younger generations, while building on his own, ever growing, stage persona.
As a talent he has shared the stage with Jerry Lee Lewis, Conway Twitty, Carl Perkins, Bugsy Maugh, Johnny Lee and the other forefathers of the Rock n’ Roll revolution.
As a concert promoter, he developed an ear for the Midwest sound incorporating talents from the world of blues, country, soul, folk, and jazz, introducing thousands to the eclectic harmonies of others, and his own.
It has been said, ”There would be no place for talent in Missouri, if not for the efforts of Larry Buck.”
The Missouri Music Hall of Fame honors his continued dedication to the art of music, education, and performance with his induction to the 2011 class on the evening of September 3rd at Phil Welch Stadium in St. Joseph, Missouri.
