Re: [Harp-L] john nemeth
has anyone seen john nemeth play live, and if yes give us the lowdown on the
cat?I've seen John play quite a few times. He was the fill in host (reg was
on tour) for a jam I go to often. He's a very good singer who also plays
harp. He plays well, but IMO it's secondary to his voice. He has a good
command of first position and the top octave beside the regular second
position stuff. He's currently in the SF Bay Area where there's an
embarrassement of harp riches. We have Mark Hummel, R.J. Mischo, and
Michael Peloquin, Gary Smith, Dave Barrett, to name a few.

Nemeth has a powerful tenor voice. When it kicks in in the high range
he evokes Clyde McPhatter or Little Johnny Taylor. He doesn't sing like
either, but he has the power, clarity, and soulfulness. He gets the
Barrelhouse Solly seal of Vocal Approval.
Most comparable, IMO, Little George Seuref.
Hear Barrelhouse Solly on the internet--that's me
