“Pickin’ Roots is always a crowd-pleaser when playing at the Monroe County Fair! They are easy to work with, and their music selection is on point!”

Darryl Diamond, Manager-Monroe County Fair



“If you love country music come out and see Larry Rothman and his great country band Pickin’ Roots. They are sensational. “A Great Singer”. You will be amazed by all of their talent.”

Nick & Kay Terry, Fairfield, MI



“Pickin’ Roots has performed several times at the Fayette Opera House in Fayette Ohio and has always been a crowd-pleaser.  With their warm, professional style, funny sense of humor and keeping country in country music, Pickin’ Roots is the best choice for country and gospel music in the area.”

Tina Snider, Director of Programming – Fayette Opera House, Fayette, Ohio



“Pickin’ Roots is a perfect combination of classic country and newer country, mixed with some lighthearted comedy exchanges between band members.  If you are looking for an evening with some “Holsum” entertainment, come on out and see Pickin’ Roots.  You won’t be disappointed.”

Tim and Shelley Judkins, Adrian, MI



“Country music the way it was meant to be played.  Larry and the Band are a must-see band!”

Ed @ the Kentuckians of Michigan 



“We have had Pickin’ Roots play at our steam engine/tractor show several times. They are always full of energy, draw a large crowd, and put on a fantastic show. They take listeners on a journey through a time in country music where some of the greatest artists sang. You can easily sing along or dance along with every song and most importantly bring back memories of years gone by. They are surely one of our favorite groups to have on stage and one of the best in the area! We plan on having them back many times in the years to come!”

Eric S. – National Threshers Association Entertainment



“I first saw the group Pickin’ Roots at the MAFE convention showcase in January of 2017.  I immediately booked them for our fair after they finished their showcase.  I knew that our patrons would love to hear the classic country songs from years past. As I am involved in many aspects of our fair, it is always an added bonus when a group arrives early and works with the sound team to get everything ready quickly.  They are very professional, kind and considerate of our needs.

Their stage presence reminds folks of days gone by, again like an old-time country band. Their performance was fantastic.  From the opening song that started with “Hello, I am Johnny Cash.” to the last song paying tribute to our armed forces, their music was great. I promise you that you will not be disappointed by booking them for your fair or festival”

Bruce Doll – Kent County Youth Fair ~ Vice President
Sponsorship & Entertainment Coordinator



“I heard nothing but great things about your band.  My mother who is 93 loves the old country music and due to health issues could not attend this year. So during your performance, I called her on my cell phone and let her listen to you and the band play.  She was so pleased and said even though she could not hear all of the words clearly it was just great.”

Shirley, Entertainment Coordinator – Dundee Mayfly Festival



“Pickin’ Roots played the Pemberville Opera House to a standing-room-only crowd. They took the audience on a trip down a country road long ago forgotten. Their excellent musicianship, repertoire and audience interaction left the crowd begging for more.  The band was easy to work with, professional on every level, making it a pleasure for any venue. I would highly recommend this band, you won’t be disappointed. Thank you, I hope to have you in Pemberville again!”




“I’ve loved music my whole life, and enjoy live performances by local artists, but it is rare to find someone whom shares the joy of singing with so much feeling, When Larry performs his abilities win everyone’s attention. From Country to Oldies, Southern Rock to Gospel, his talent is not just a gift from God, it’s one of the many joys in his life. His path in life has been that of family and God, but he could be one of the greatest singers on radio today if he wanted.”

Doug Gilson – Milan Fair Board



“Absolutely the best classic country I’ve heard! Love the way the band interacts with the audience. We try to make every concert they put on. You’ll never meet a more family-type band. Each and every one of them is fantastic!! God Bless!”

Joyce Cook



“Pickin’ Roots has entertained the Farmer’s Antique Tractor and Engine Association multiple times. Each time I have heard people in the CROWD saying how much they love hearing them sing “that good ol’ fashioned country.” Each show they entertain us I see new fans from the age of three to eighty-three. If you’re looking for ol’ time country and a great show GO SEE PICKIN’ ROOTS! You won’t be disappointed!”
