The Hazzards are Sydney Maresca & Anne Harris, two ukulele players from New York who write comic songs about making out, "girl beer," and the wonderful world of temp work. They had a cult hit recently when their video for the song "Gay Boyfriend" got passed around via the Internet. A dance remix of their song “Gay Boyfriend” was released in the UK and debuted at #67 on the UK singles charts. Their latest CD, So Pretty, includes the featured track, "Just a Temp."

Originally a ukulele/Casio SK-1/glockenspiel/tambourine duo, Maresca & Harris are now backed by three other artists: Andrew Dickerson on Bass, Will Carlough on drums and sax and Paul Thureen on harp and trumpet. When they're not making music, Maresca is a fashion designer and costume designer for theater, dance and film. Harris sings, dances and plays street hockey.
