Larry Antonino

Composer. Touring Artist. Record Producer. Engineer. Actor.

World class Bassist and Composer, Larry Antonino (Ronnie Laws, The Jazz Crusaders, Air Supply, Pablo Cruise, Barry Manilow)  join forces with long time associate Darryl Scotti, founder of Big Yard Nation, a Phoenix, AZ Record Label collaborative as a principle member, songwriter and record producer along with co-founders Alex Chacon (musician, record producer, media content creator) and Aaron Howard (singer, songwriter, record producer).

This will allow the collaborative to extend their reach into the Los Angeles marketplace with Antoninio at the helm from the creative production facility, Agoura Borealis Recording Studio once owned by the late Glenn Campbell.

This joining of forces is one of destiny as Scotti and the then 17 year old Antonino began working together in the mid eighties. Antonino, the bassist for a multi instrumental jazz fusion band was discovered by Scotti who took over management of the act known as City and began promoting them in Northern California.

Scotti’s first move as manager was to bring on Gavin Christopher, singer songwriter and front man credited for writing ‘Stars in your Eyes’ for Herbie Hancock and ‘Once You Get Started’ for Chaka Kahn and Rufus.

Rebranding the act as ‘City featuring Gavin Christopher’ the band went on to rapid San Francisco, Northern California success headlining venues and touring with acts like Average White Band and other notables.

Antonino’s music career then snowballed after relocating to Los Angeles in the early nineties now playing bass for Pablo Cruise since 2010 after two European tours with the Jazz Crusaders, stints with Ronnie Laws, writing hits and touring with Air Supply including touring with Barry Manilow and many more internationally known headlining acts.

Larry now lives in Los Angeles with his son Matthew and is active in the recording, touring and record producing industry. His extensive career also includes acting roles as an active member of SAG in ‘That Thing you Do! with Tom Hanks in 1996, Playing by Heart in 1998 and Blind Obsession in 2001.
