Named Best Acoustic Duo 2015

Steve and Mary E., started making music in the autumn of 07' For many years I was a part of the music scene in Kankakee Illinois. For 15+ years straight I sang with the Kankakee Municipal Band. In addition to this for 20 years I sang many weddings, funerals, special events, charity concerts and was known for my a Capella rendition of the Start Spangled Banner. In 2007 I was fortunate to join up with an incredible musician Steve Champagne. Steve brought with him the ability to pick up a guitar or sit at a piano and play pretty much anything he heard. A Beatles aficionado and lover of classic rock tunes, he willingly expanded his repertoire to embrace my varied love of music. We are thrilled to be performing for the people of my home town and accepting this award. http://reverbnation.com/stevandmarye
