The Nighthawks played the Kaffee Klatsch in Huntsville last night, to
a very intense and appreciative crowd. The band were a little taken
back by the diminutive size of the KK, but soon warmed up to it's
wonderful atmosphere and acoustics.

As usual, Mark Wenner just blew my mind. Despite having been on the
road for 20 years, he still manages to come up with fresh material,
styles and tone.

Anyways, I told him all about harp-l, and he said "Jeez, that sounds
dangerously addictive, don't let me near it". He also said to say Hi
to everyone, and especially to Kim Field.

Mark suprised me by dragging me up to blow a couple of tunes in the
last set. It was an awesome experience playing with such a tight,
professional and kick ass band!

Oh, and James Harman was pretty damn good on Thursday night, as well ...

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into JT30.com in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.
