In 2011, Larry moved to Frisco and started work Ski Patrolling at Copper Mountain. After a day on the slopes, Larry would get together with a few other patrollers to make some music and they soon formed their first band. ‘The Perseverators’ were named after a medical term for repeating the same thing over and over after hitting your head- a fitting nod to the band members' day jobs and the relatively small catalog of songs the group tended to play in the beginning. The band then became Larry and the Losers for a time before reforming as Broke Down Rodeo. The band consists of: Matt Lovas (guitar/vocals), Nick Slaton (drums), Bill Ryan (bass), John Burk (banjo/dobro/mandolin/vocals), Anna Welcher (lead vocals/guitar), and Larry Lacerte (guitar/vocals).
