Complete sound system for indoor or outdoor events. Polished, professional and always personable.
This was the first time we tried music for this event and it really added to the evening. Mary Harris and her guitar player (sorry forgot his name) had just the right flavor of music for the evening. The sound system, volume were right on the money. They were engaging with the audience. Even had one guy singing along in the mike. We heard nothing but good things from the people attending that evening.
The Mary Harris Duo provided wonderful jazz music for Olbrich's Rhapsody in Bloom fundraiser. Mary's smooth voice could be heard through out the Rose Garden during the event, creating the perfect ambiance!
I've known Mary Harris in a variety of contexts both personally and professionally over the years and she is both a talented performer and extremely organized and professional in her work. Very collaborative, she's always happy to work as a team member to create the end vision.
Mary Harris is great to watch live, she is entertaining and versitile enough to cover all styles of music. I highly recommend her for your next engagement
