Sgt Larry and the Souljers

WAS FORMED FOR THE EXPRESS PURPOSE OF RECORDING AND PERFORMING "BILL" THE UNDECLARED WAR OPERA . THIS ROCK OPERA WAS A YEAR IN THE MAKING. THE MEMBERS HAVE ONLY BEEN TOGETHER AS A GROUP FOR A SHORT TIME. HOWEVER, ALL OF THE MEMBERS HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH EACH OTHER IN OTHER PROJECTS THROUGH THE YEARS. THESE PROJECTS INCLUDE BANDS, GROUPS, AND EVENTS SINCE MARK KURTZ AND TERRY CAMERON MET EACH OTHER IN 1976.

"BILL" THE UNDECLARED WAR OPERA IS A STORY ABOUT A SOLDIER’S JOURNEY THROUGH THE VIETNAM CONFLICT AND ALL THAT CAME WITH IT – INCLUDING HAVING A GOOD TIME WITH HIS FRIENDS; THE FEAR, THE LOATHING; THE LONELINESS; THE SORROW; BEING MISUNDERSTOOD; AND AFTER RETURNING HOME, THE BROKENNESS OF FEELING THAT NO ONE CARED AND THE ADJUSTMENTS OF LIFE AFTER WAR.

OUR ROCK OPERA IS A WORK OF 18-SONGS FULL OF SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE. THERE ARE SEVERAL HARD-HITTING ROCK AND ROLL SONGS AND SEVERAL BALLADS. A LOVE SONG WILL TUG AT THE HEART STRINGS, AND THE FINALE ENDS THE OPERA WITH A SONG FULL OF HOPE FOR THE FUTURE.

WE HAVE PLANS TO COMPLETE THE VIDEO PORTION NEXT FOR A COMPLETE DVD OF "BILL" THE UNDECLARED WAR OPERA, AND THEN TO CONTINUE WITH THE PRODUCTION OF A STAGE PLAY.
