Larry Stephenson Band is proud to announce their new bass player, Norbert McGettigan. The 27-year-old from Moorestown, New Jersey, now resides in Asheville, NC.

Norbert has been playing for eight years, getting his start while playing in college. He said, “The Bluegrass Band’s, Once Again From The Top Vol. 1 and 2 was some of the first bluegrass I was introduced to, so I’ve been listening to Larry for a while. I’m excited to have the opportunity to play in his band.” 

He will play his first show tomorrow, Saturday, January 27, with the Larry Stephenson Band during the 49th Annual SPBGMA Awards Show at the Music City Sheraton in Nashville, TN. The Bluegrass Music Awards Show begins at 7:00 p.m. with The Farm Hands, with featured performances by The Grascals, Rhonda Vincent & The Rage, and the Larry Stephenson Band. Larry Stephenson and the band have won numerous SPBGMA awards over the years. Stephenson is nominated again this year as Mandolin Performer of the Year.

“I’m looking forward to the addition of Norbert,” said Stephenson. “I was really impressed with his audition when he came to tryout. We can’t wait to get on stage and provide some straightforward music for the fans of LSB. The guys and I enjoyed working with Andy Brown the previous bassist, the last three years and wish him good luck in his new endeavor.”
