 If Hal is talking about only the major horn lines , these are easily played in 2nd. Choose a key in which the lines are not played on real low or high pitched harmonicas.

 If the band starts out in D and modulates up a half step to Eb, then the
obvious thing to do is switch to an Ab harp and play in 2nd position. It
would be kinda odd for a band to switch to Ab from D but if that happens,
make sure you have a Db harp and play in 2nd position.
