Harry & the Hitmen / Press

“Somehow managing to successfully filter Motown mega-hits through a swirling, Dead-inspired musical hookah of extended jams and improvisation, Harry and the Hitmen are one of Santa Cruz’s liveliest and most loveable bands. From “Respect,” “My Girl” and “Soul Man,” to “Nowhere to Run” and “Reach Out, I’ll Be There,” these creators of the “psychedelic Motown throw-down” have the jams to get the party started and the chops to pull it off.”

“The dapper dons in Harry & 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 & 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.”
