This Stan Watkins group called TWO FOR TEA plays good old fashioned music. The kind you want to sing along with. We play for the older crowd who have been virtually forgotten by today’s musicians and the younger crowd that yearns for something a little old timey. Tin Pan Alley is where we live musically. Irving Berlin, The Gershwins, Cole Porter, Rogers and Hart and the many others of their ilk are our influences. Keith Droste’s virtuoso piano stylings set the tone for this musical stroll down memory lane with Stan lending a hand with his unique brand of vocals and trumpet playing.

LARRY TUTTLE – THE STICK
Growing up in Seattle, Washington, Larry Tuttle discovered the string bass at age nine and embarked on a childhood saturated in music, playing in school orchestras, All-City orchestras, Youth Symphonies, college symphonies, and just about every kind of ensemble imaginable. Larry studied classically at the University of Washington as a string bass major under James Harnett (principal bass – Seattle Symphony) as well as taking extensive private study with such notables as Ron Simon, Ring Warner and Oscar Zimmerman. A short study course in ear-training with jazz great Gary Peacock was a revelation, opening his ears to jazz and helping to develop deep listening skills and musical philosophy. Larry played principal bass for a summer at the National Music Camp in Interlochen, as well as sitting in with the Seattle Symphony as an honor student.
Discovering the electric bass and progressive rock bands such as Yes, ELP and Gentle Giant while in high school, Larry went on to play for ten years with rock group “Russia”, moving to Los Angeles and recording two albums for Warner Bros. Records.
After the Russia years, looking to expand his musical choices, he added The Stick to his repertoire of instruments. It was a life-changing move. The Stick opened up entire vistas of musical expression. As a new instrument with plenty of untapped potential, it offered both a challenge and an opportunity for creating a totally unique musical identity. The Stick’s two-handed playing technique and contrapuntal sound also made it an ideal instrument for expression as a composer.
