Harry and the Hitmen serve up classic Motown and Soul with jovial professionalism. But don't let the "suits" fool you, the band comes from an improvised rock tradition, and has years of experimentation behind their tight arrangements. Unearthing gems from the golden years of Motown and Stax records, the group curates a unique set for every show. And because all six members are multi-instrumentalists and avid improvisers, their concerts continue to evolve nightly.

Santa Cruz Weekly, 10/27/2010

The dapper dons in Harry and the Hitmen turn out psychedelic-inflected classic soul music with the verve and style of the greats. Unapologetic throwbacks, the members of the band unearth dusty Motown grooves and inject some interstellar jam-band flights of fancy. Harry and the Hitmen bring a bit of much-needed spectacle to Santa Cruz stages, employing their own lighting designer and engaging in heavily produced and choreographed sets. It’s a refreshing sight to see some local boys abandon the Santa Cruz tuxedo (hoodies and Converse) for something a bit more refined and classic.
