About
Category 2 has performed throughout South East Michigan at the MGM Grand Casino, The Red Ox Tavern, CJ's Sandbar, The Bowery Grille & Pub, The Plymouth ROC, The Tavern at Tina's Country House, TC Gators, Hamlin Pub, E.G. Nick's and Chapman's Mill as well as a number of private events and festivals. They play your favorite acoustic, classic rock, pop & blues tunes from the 1960s to 2014.

Perry & Russ find it extremely satisfying to express their creativity by mixing in a few unique arrangements of songs not typically performed by acoustic duos (e.g. Roundabout by Yes).

Perry is the ultimate front man who connects with audiences with his impeccable range and charisma. He has performed at The Pontiac Silverdome, Emerald Theater, MGM Grand Detroit, Motor City Casino and Soaring Eagle Casino to name a few.

Russ has been playing lead guitar professionally for 20+ years and has played many of the clubs in Detroit, Ann Arbor & Lansing. Russ has performed hundreds of shows outside Michigan from Detroit to Atlanta and from New York to St. Louis.

They were a great addition to our wedding. We received many compliments. I don't have one bad thing to say. Glad I had them and I'd hire them again.

I took a chance with booking Category 2 and was very pleasantly surprised. It was a pleasure doing business with both gentlemen. They are most accommodating for requests and sing-a-longs!. As for their singing, they blend very well together, so it is a pleasure to listen to them sing and entertain. I will definitely hire them again for any future functions I may have.

I believe they were the best act we have had at Twin Beach Country Club. Their renditions of Gotya's song, Blurred Lines and Roundabout were the highlights. Excellent guitar playing by Russ Hardy on Roundabout. I plan on hiring them again.

The guys were very gracious and a great addition to our wedding. They definitely made the night very special and amazingly fun!!!! They are very talented and were able to play a wide variety of music which made our guest extremely happy. The crowd was on their feet singing and dancing until the very last song and it seemed that the more we danced the harder they played. Our friends are still talking about how good they were and we had a wonderful night because of their willingness to please the crowd . Category 2 definitely made our night!!!! I would recommend Russ and Perry for any occasion and look forward to hearing them play again!!!!
