Harris Brothers

First Annual Rotary Jam a Great Success

The first annual Rotary Jam on Saturday, May 17th 2014 was a fun evening for all, thanks to the music of the amazing Harris Brothers and the outstanding barbecue prepared by Hickory Sunrise Rotarians. The event netted over $4,000 to provide scholarships for deserving students wishing to attend Catawba Valley Community College. There was a show of paintings by local artists, a silent auction and prize drawings throughout the evening.

Harris Brothers to Play at Rotary Jam Fundraiser for Education

Hickory Sunrise Rotary Club is delighted to announce that popular local band The Harris Brothers will play at the Rotary Jam event on May 17th 2014.

Harris Bros

“Americana” is often used to describe their style, but the Harris Brothers just call it music. Their sound is heavily influenced by traditional blues and Appalachian mountain music, jazz, country, and rock n’ roll. No matter what the Harris Brothers play, be it originals or old favorites, they have a special way of making the music their own; it’s stripped down, intense, and real, with no gimmicks.

The Rotary Jam will raise money for scholarships for deserving local youth, while providing a wonderful night of music and fun for all the family. Tickets are just $25 and include entertainment and a barbecue dinner. A variety of craft beers will be available, as well as other refreshments.
