Larry Rhymes

As the name ‘Ratio’ indicates, the band performs a balanced repertoire of music for their audiences. Their unique ‘Phoenix Design’ consists of a crossover of styles that appeal to R&B, Funk, and Smooth Jazz fans. The combination of the jazzy rock of the lead guitarist or the funky groove of the keyboardist with the unique bass guitar innovations also lead to the creation of Latin and dance tunes. Additional keyboard and vocals add creative layers to all the songs.
