About Larry Ritter

Hello my name is Larry Ritter, or “Big L” to most of my friends. I’m a production supervisor for a major manufacturer of auto parts here in northwest Ohio. I received an Associate’s degree from Owen’s Community College where I graduated cum laude honors. I have a true passion for music, sports, photography and riding motorcycles.

Ventana on top of their game during their 13th anniversary show at The Agora. Axioma, DOSE, Half Raised Heathens, Half Knocked Out and Helicase there to help out.

    One of my favorite things about smaller venues like the Agora is the intimate setting it provides between the talent on stage and the fans filling the room.  It has always been a great place to go if you are looking for a new band to follow or a new sound to get […]
