Just thought I'd report on MY first ever gig playing blues harmonica. I
was 13 years old, and the band was "The Bespoke Tailor Unit", formed with
guys from the school I was attending, and the gig was at the Blackheath Rugby
Club, in South-East London, England. It was a great success. I played my
harp through a Selmar Little Giant 5 watt tube amp, and a Reslo ribbon mic.
It seems almost as though it was yesterday, despite being more than 50
years ago (Gosh am I really THAT old?) That gig led me into a lifelong love of
blues and rock music... Including playing my harp all over the world (both
diatonic and chromatic), and getting paid for it!
