World's Record Harmonica Blowoff
How 'bout this...10,000 harmonica players blowing blues riffs at a baseball game and setting a Guinness Book World's Record (held in Japan at the moment)while doing it. Hey, and you can be part of it and watch YOUR Houston Astros beat up on the Los Angeles Dodgers on September 10th, 7:05 pm. Hey, and they'll give you a harmonica at the gate to wail away on. Might sound like a bunch of angry hornets turned loose in downtown Houston, ya think? I don't have a heck of a lot of details (other than show up and blow), but I do know that Sonny Boy Terry and a couple of other Houston blues cats with be leading the masses on how to play a down and dirty set of riffs. I also know that the Pocket Full of Soul guys are ramrodding the logistics, so go over to www.pocketfullofsoulmovie.com for more details as they come out. While you're there, be sure to get a copy of the greatest harmonica documentary...ever.
