About Us

Bobby T TribuzioBobby "T" Tribuzio

When Bobby met Larry Chance, a lifelong connection was born. A respect for and a recognition of each other's talents led to a musical and business partnership that lasted 60+ years.  The blend gelled into a finished product that had audiences seeking out their special brand of music.  It seemed to reach everyone's heart on a personal level.
Larry's passing affected Bobby profoundly.  It was Larry's wish that Bobby keep The Earls going.  Bobby's promise to Larry to make that wish a reality is one he took seriously.  
Although Larry is gone, Bobby feels that those who sing in harmony never grow apart.  So now, along with The Earls, he lifts his voice and heart to Larry Chance performing original Earls songs such as Remember Then, Never, Life Is But a Dream, Acapella With My Friends and their most requested song, I Believe.
Not to detract from his vocal abilities, Bobby is also a celebrated drummer who has earned kudos from his contemporaries.  His style is unique and flawless.  
While enjoying performing with The Earls, he was also the driving force for many shows dating back to the 60's.  He has had the opportunity to back up such luminaries as: Patti LaBelle and The Blue Belles, Chuck Berry. Bo Diddley. Chubby Checker. The Shirelles, The Chiffons, Little Anthony and The Imperials, The Flamingos, The Drifters, The Four Tops, Ruby and The Romantics, Percy Sledge, Wilbert Harrison, Len Barry, Lou Christy, Bobby Lewis, Lenny Welch, The Coasters, Screamin' Jay Hawkins and many more.
Earls fans are familiar with his dynamic style and are always wowed by his performance.
The Earls are one of a very few self contained acts.  Each member plays an instrument as well as being vocally proficient.  Always appreciative of their fans, they are polished and personable.  The Earls are all of these things, but most of all, they are back.

As a teen, Frank was an avid fan of The Earls. Listening to their records, 8-tracks, cassettes, and CDs, Frank continued to find inspiration from Larry's unique lead vocal style.
