LARGE FLOWER HEADS
Take a Groovy Trip back to the '60s with Large Flowerheads!
Imagine being part of the scene when the songs spoke of love, sunshine, and happiness. The Large Flowerheads bring to life the musical sights & sounds of the '60s. They "look like the 60s with their Paisley shirts and Nehru jackets and they sound enough like the bands of that era to be the real thing." - Jack Fichter, Cape May County Herald
Their repertoire includes numbers from The Beatles, Neil Diamond, Strawberry Alarm Clock, Sonny & Cher, The Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, Tom Jones, Mama & the Papas, The 5th Dimension, The Monkees & many more. "They perform these timeless classics with a sense of perfection rarely heard in a cover band." - Michael McKenna, Music Reviewer
The Large Flowerheads have opened for Peter Noone & Herman's Hermits, The 5th Dimension, The Guess Who, The Tubes, The Dan Band, and The Vogues. At Wildwood's Sensational '60s Weekend, they warmed up the crowd for The Grass Roots, Gary Puckett & the Union Gap, and Paul Revere & the Raiders.
Notable stages played include the Musikfest Café in Bethlehem PA, Penn's Peak in Jim Thorpe PA, Sellersville Theater in Sellersville PA, Hollywood Casino in Hershey PA, Bayonne Summer Concert Series in Bayonne NJ, and TD Bank Amphitheater in Bensalem PA. They can also be seen performing at fairs, festival and summer concert series throughout the region, including Musikfest.
Named after a carton of artificial flowers spotted in a warehouse rehearsal space, The Large Flowerheads consist of Maureen "Moe" Jerant on drums and guitar, Greg Geist on rhythm guitar and drums, Billy Trexler on lead guitar and electric sitar, John Harkins on keyboards & bass and Colleen Zajacik on bass guitar & percussion. Their home is the Lehigh Valley, PA.
