Event Details

Musician, singer and songwriter L.A. Suess, of Galena, Illinois, is a consummate entertainer, performing his special style of music for appreciative audiences.

His lifelong love of music has led to a rewarding career. In 1991, he began performing on the riverboats Twilight and the Julia Belle Swain, followed by several years in Branson, Missouri where he performed at Silver Dollar City, on the Branson Belle, and at his own show at Mutton Hollow.

In 1997, he moved to Hannibal, Missouri, where he was the featured performer on the Riverboat Mark Twain for 15 years. His authentic style of music transported audiences back to past days of the grand riverboat era, offering soothing sounds to match the pace and relaxation of river boating.

In 2013 L.A. moved back to Galena Illinois, where he started his musical carrier twenty five years before. He has been performing on the riverboat Twilight each summer and is seeking other historic venues in the area, on his off time from the boat.

Over the years, Suess has written songs about a number of topics, bringing joy, laughter and occasionally tears to his listeners. He has performed in historic venues, but also has built a collection of covers and developed a more contemporary sound of his own. His daily singing and playing harmonica, banjo, guitar, mandolin and ukulele have grown and matured Suess’s style to offer a diverse and entertaining performance.
