"Randal's charisma and virtuosity make him our audience favorite."

“The Randal Harrison Trio ... members were extremely professional and provided our audience with a high-quality performance. Their repertoire of mostly original music was refreshing and kept the audience on its toes in anticipation of what was to come next. They were amazed as was I that such talented performers came from "our own backyard." I would recommend the Randal Harrison Trio for any size show; from a large concert hall to a small intimate club. They are top-notch performers.”
