Larry Kwartowitz has been drumming since the age of 3 or 4 and has been composing and performing live music since he was a teenager. One of the founding members of the Tri State area based avant-metal band, Cleric, Larry is known for playing many styles that range from hip hop and funk to jazz and the heaviest of rock.

He attended French Woods Festival, a performing arts camp, for many years where he gained a great deal of experience playing in symphony and jazz orchestras, theater pit orchestras, rock bands as well as in drum circles and for dancers and circus performers, playing accompanying hand percussion. That combined with private lessons starting at a young age and attending a high school that specialized in music prepared Larry to pursue any musical styles he felt the ambition to.

Since Cleric's first full length album was released on Trey Spruance's label, Web of Mimicry, they have toured most of the United States and Canada and most recently have been working on thei…

Acid Jam Session (Puebla, MX)

El viernes 14 de abril de 2017, Larry Kwartowitz se presentará en Puebla, México; en la Galería Experimental Liliput, un espacio dedicado a la creación experimental independiente que cuenta con un programa de residencias para artistas de México y el mundo.

Most recently Larry Kwartowitz has joined the new line-up of Ron Anderson's PAK, along with Ron on guitar and Steve Blanco on bass. After playing a live improv set with no preparation ( and where Larry had literally met Ron and Steve for the first time as he walked up onto the stage to perform, shaking hands before starting ), they have started jamming and writing new music.

The sound can be described as progressive rock mixed with funk, but slightly more non-stop and straighter to the point than Larry's other projects.

Ron Anderson formed PAK in 2000 after spending some time with The Molecules and has released four albums between 2003 and 2011. Through out the years, they have undergone numerous line-up changes, this current incarnation being the fifth... Larry is extremely excited, honored and humbled to be part of this band, to say the least.
