Vocalist, Patty Harper has been raising the roof belting out the blues & rock since hooking up with guitarist Steve Harper in California in 1992. Prior to that time, she had sung various styles of music including Top 40 pop, jazz and rock opera throughout the U.S. & Europe, with performances in England, France, Germany, Switzerland & Holland at such prestigious venues as The Montreaux Jazz Festival. Her musical journey with Steve Harper began about 15 years ago in Southern California, where they worked steadily at various rock & blues venues, sharing the stage with the likes of Coco Montoya, Walter Trout & Billy Preston & headlining annual events & Fundraisers for The American Cancer Society, The Humane Society, The Riverside Philharmonic & various annual concert series for Cal State University SBDO & The City of SBDO.

While in Vegas, they recorded their first studio CD 'Blues You Can Feel.' In the winter of 2002, they packed up the dogs & the guitars & made the move to Memphis where they made their partnership official by getting hitched on the rooftop of The Peabody Hotel & spent their wedding night playing a gig on Beale making music & sharing wedding cake with the audience. They are happy to have played many Beale Street venues including Elvis Presley's Memphis, The Blues City Cafe where they played a private party for HBO, Showtime & Team Tyson for The Rumble on The River Boxing Event, as well as at The King's Palace Patio, The Tap Room, & for Memphis in May, Labor Day Music Festival, New Year's Eve, etc at W.C.
