We enjoyed Mario and Norm on the American Cruise Lines American Harmony in June 2021. These two are consummate pros and deliver their music at the 100% level. It made for a really enjoyable portion of the cruise.

Ascolto con molto piacere la tua musica, mi piacerebbe ascoltarti dal vivo, ma putroppo non mi e possibile vivendo dal l'altra parte del mondo ( Italy Sicily city Catania ) mi debbo accontentare dal web. Ti ringrazio per la tua bella musica. un abbraccio.

Mario Carboni is a very talented musician who is actively keeping the classic country music Bakersfield sound alive through his performances. He honors artists like the late Red Simpson who he wrote and performed music with. He travels and performs with a true living legend, Mr. Norm Hamlet , the long time (some 50 years) band leader (and steel guitar player) for the best country band of all time - Merle Haggard and the Strangers!). He is also one of the finest individuals you will ever meet. If you get the chance, go to one of his performances -- he's the real deal.

Saw Mario and Norm Hamlet at the Southwest steel convention in Phoenix in 2020. Delightful !! The most entertaining and engaging hour of music I’ve seen in many year. Great piano, vocals, and legendary steel and stories.

We had the pleasure of attending a concert with this amazingly talented piano man. He puts on a great show and can multitask with his trumpet and is quite the entertainer. We originally came to this concert for Norm Hamlet because we are Merle and steel guitar fans but quickly found that having both of these gentleman together brings back the real country we have listened to forever. We wish them well in their joint endeavor and hope to hear something real on the radio again.

My husband and I were in Alaska in August and happened to get the opportunity to see you at the Blueberry Festival at Alyeska. What a great show! Great piano and trumpet playing, and voice.
The songs you write are witty, catchy and clever - we both were wondering why you aren’t in Nashville!
We live in Bend, Oregon and plan to go to Sutherlin, Or to see you at the Eagles. Even though your music is from a different era, mine, I noticed that younger people were enjoying it as much as anyone.

Such a great talent! Watching you beat on that piano and singing was awesome, and then the trumpet made it amazing! Hope to see in you Salem again

Made a huge fan out of me tonight in Salem Oregon. Thank you for your great music. Can't wait to get my hands on a CD with the Honky Tonk Rebel & the Stranger Norm Hamlet.
