Nick Harless is the lead guitarist and songwriter of the band. At 21 years of age Nick has been playing guitar for only 6 years, but in those few short years, he has progressed at an alarming rate. Nick's older brother Tony is the bass guitarist. Tony has been playing guitar for over 20 years. Tony quit playing on six strings, and went to four when Nick got to where his licks were better than Tony's. Tony said, “I'm better on four than I ever was on six”. Both Tony and Nick were taught to play the guitar and perform by their father Tony Sr., a long time musician. The band was formerly known as The Midnight Sun Blues Band, but after losing long time drummers Dave Huff, and Russell (Steamroller) Shelby, in addition to other bands having the same name The Midnight Sun, the band decided it was time to change their name. Now together with Kacy Perry on drums the three are known as the Harless Brothers Band. With a great foundation in Tony, Kacy, and the awesome lick's on the guitar and songwriting prowess from Nick, the three are pumping out their own distinctive and unique sound. With influences such as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Joe Bonamassa, Johnny Guitar Watson, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Ten Years After, Rare Earth, and Robert Cray just to name a few. The Harless Brothers want to play for anyone and everyone who wants to listen, get their music out there, and let everyone know they were born to Rock N' Roll.
