Re: Convention Artist Suggestions

 When I went to the first SPAH 2002 I found the Harmonica groups to be most
interesting as I missed that entire musical movement.  I think it is great
to be able to read and play a piece on chromatic, I could do more pick up
work with a horn group if I could read something beyound chord charts.
I really enjoyed the hybrid stylings of Damion Mastrson (sp) & Bill Barlett
they knocked me out!

 Not to take the high road, but I like it ALL!
