Salute to Vets - Honoring Sisters Who Served
Larry McCray with special guest Sergeant Tony Purifoy

McCray, 58, was born in Arkansas and moved with his large family to Saginaw in 1972. For years he balanced working full-time on a General Motors assembly line with his budding musical career. He finally committed to music full-time 25 years ago and issued the first
of nine albums. His hard-rock guitar playing combined with soulful vocals continues to attract legions of fans worldwide.

The second youngest of nine children, McCray credits older sister, Clara, as his greatest musical influence. She gave him his first guitar at age 12 and taught him how to play. He formed his first band with brothers Carl (on bass), Steve (on drums) and nephew Tony Purifoy (vocals), Claras son. The band broke up when Larry signed his first recording contract, although younger brother Steve has stayed with him.

Purifoy has performed with several premier soul and funk bands which have opened for The Commodores and KC and the Sunshine Band. He brings a high-energy style of soul, funk and R&B to every performance.

Tell Yo Mama Band

Tell Yo Mama is a soulful, funky, groove machine from Lansing, MI. We wanna make "music that moves you"! Tell Yo Mama has the groove sauce that keeps the party going all night - wear some holes in your shoes. The band has a wide range of stylistically diverse original music, delving into aspects of soul, funk, rock, blues and much more. As our world moves through timeless cyclical patterns of recurrence and change, one thing remains the same PEOPLE LOVE TO DANCE! People love to get down to great music and forget about their daily struggles, even if just for a little while. Tell Yo Mama is here to carry the torch and continue the legacy of creative, groove-heavy tunes.
