Noted Memories


Noted Memories

Larry Farber, who has devoted his life to music, tells his story in “Noted Memories – How A Kid From Charlotte Had A Moment With Tony, Aretha, Bonnie, Sheryl And More.” That’s Tony Bennett, Aretha Franklin, Bonnie Raitt and Sheryl Crow. They and dozens more are in this 130-page softcover celebration of Larry’s life. Larry grew up playing in bands, performing at weddings and parties. He booked bands for a living, opened a private music club called Music With Friends and then Middle C Jazz Club in uptown Charlotte. It’s all here, plus 50 photos of Larry and various legends. Read about the night he convinced Aretha to take the stage after Whitney Houston died and lots more. The book celebrates the power of music to unite us. It sells for $25, with partial sales supporting the nonprofit Arts Plus.
