Orleans’ Larry Hoppen Dies

Larry Hoppen, 61, singer and guitarist for Orleans, died July 24. He was living in Sanford, Fla., at the time of his death.

Although many associate former congressman John Hall with the vocals of the band’s hits, it was actually Hoppen who sang the leads on songs like “Still the One,” “Dance With Me” and “Love Takes Time.”

Cause of death was unknown at press time. The band is currently in its 40th year.
