BWW Review: MR. HARRIS AND MR. EDWARDS Are Off to a Promising Start at Don't Tell Mam Photo BWW Review: MR. HARRIS AND MR. EDWARDS Are Off to a Promising Start at Don't Tell Mama
by Ricky Pope - Sep 3, 2021

Tonight, in their debut show at Don’t Tell Mama, Quentin Harris and Bryce Edwards added their own names to the list of performing teams who use opposition to their advantage. They bill themselves simply as MR. HARRIS AND MR. EDWARDS. If this sounds like a throwback to vaudeville days, it’s not entirely an accident. Harris and Edwards owe much to those old-time show business acts and most of their musical material is drawn from the Great American Songbook and from jazz standards. Quentin Harris knows a great deal about jazz and plays piano in the style of Oscar Peterson and many of the other jazz greats. Bryce Harris is a charmingly off-kilter one-man band, who plays ukulele, banjo, and the world’s most cumbersome looking kazoo. His style is bombastic and more than a little Jolson-esque. Both men are young, still in school, in fact, and so their show is a little rough around the edges as they find their footing. But they have the bones of a really interesting and unique act.

We all know him, whether it be shining on stage interpreting one of the tongue-in- cheek American Standards that he's known for, buzzing around Don't Tell Mama's making sure everything is going smoothly with the multiple shows he booked that day, or simply floating into a cabaret club to support an artist he enjoys. HE is the kind and encouraging man that has launched many a career and has given young artists a shot to perform, long before their names were in lights on the great white way. Who is this legendary New York City fixture? Why, none other than Sidney Myer (of course)!
