Judging from the discussion, you guys are talking Blues Harp, and
Blues gigs, which there is an abundance of, I would say. All of the
guys on the list below would fit in that category, pretty much.
San Francisco has always been a good town for Blues, and lots of
successful, well know musicians ended up living here in the Bay Area,
most of them an hour or two away from The City itself as is the case
with Musselwhite and Norton.
If you want to hear other kinds of music re: harmonica, there's that,
too, although it's rare. But it's out there.
The Blues gigs are in abundance for obvious reasons. There's very
few good dedicated Blues clubs around... Biscuits & Blues is probably
the best venue to see names at, Lou's Pier 47 is awright, but doesn't
have too many headliners, mostly local cats, some very good. Then
there's a few dives (Sometimes the best environment!) here and there
that cater to the Genre. I suppose if you wanted to get down to
semantics, you could even specify which kind of Blues you like.
Personally, I can't take shuffles all night long, but that has more
to do with the band than the venue, I guess.
So have fun out there!

Is SF always this harpilated? I would venture to say we have one of
the finest concentrations of great harmonica players anywhere. I am
sure I will forget as many as I mention as I write this list, but the
