Mary C’s performances with her band The Stellars continue to electrify and energize crowds with their unique mix of soul and rock, highlighted with a blend of pop, blues and funk. They have opened for Grammy-nominated artists Thievery Corporation, Emily King, 311, and Matisyahu and were invited to perform at South by Southwest in 2013 for Rachael Ray’s Feedback concert. The daughter of jazz recording artist Mercedes Hall and the sister of “Brat Pack” member Anthony Michael Hall, Mary C has been writing and performing original material since the age of five. The Stellars represent her vision of showcasing the essence of her native New York City.
