This is cool. I didn’t know that JP and Adam Gussow knew each other. I get Adams newsletter and saw this!!

- HARMONICA MADNESS IN NYC
Some of you are familiar with J. P. Allen. He’s a notable harmonica presence on YouTube, and he’s arguably my biggest competitor in the field of internet-based blues harp teaching materials. His websites include harmonica.com, harmonicalessons.com, and freeharmonicalessons.com. His YouTube videos are notable for his relaxed, engaging approach and an understated wit that often finds him pairing himself up onscreen with winsome young women–babes (if you’ll excuse my sexism) whom he then instructs in the fine points of lip-placement, tongue-work, and breath-rhythm. He’s got the mojo.
J.P. and I are also friends. In fact, as he likes to remind me, he once visited me many years ago in my way-uptown NYC apartment and took a lesson with me.
J.P. and I are teaming up this summer for a long afternoon at the Jalopy Theater in Brooklyn: a five-hour harmonica clinic in multiple parts (noon to 5 PM), followed by a two-hour concert from 6 to 8 PM. New York bluesman Robert Ross will be joining us for the instructional portion. The evening concert will include my NYC debut as a one-man band.
This event takes place on Saturday, July 30th. We’re calling it “Harmonica Madness.” The advance registration rate for the whole thing is $45, but that rate is only available until May 1. After that, the price rises to $65 advance and $75 at the door.
Please hit THIS LINK and take a look at the website. If you attend, you’ll be pumped full of enough harmonica juice to last you a good long time. I hope we see you there.
