I just got done getting a batch of amps ready and they'll be off today.  Also, Dennis Gruenling will be playing here in Ocala on November 6th at 8PM at the Tin Cup Tavern.  Prior to the gig he will be putting on a 2-3 hr seminar on playing harp.  Starting around 5pm.  I will post the details when they are 100% solid.  I have been listening to a lot of Billy Gibson lately.  If you haven't heard his stuff I recommend you take a listen when you get a chance.  It's great stuff!  One last thing before I go.  I have a new HG30 in Green and Cream ready to go and I am going to sell this one for $1000.00 plus shipping.  This is only for this one and in the Green and Cream.  It is my way of saying thanks to all my great customers and customers to be.  If you have been kicking it around for a while let me know and I can get it right off to you.  I really appreciate all the great people who come by here and check the news and the site out.  Thanks!  Please see other news here.

I wanted to congratulate Chris Scholz for taking 3rd place in the Bean Blossom Harmonica Contest.  He recently got a Double Trouble and he says he had a great time with it at Bean.  For more details of the contest see the page on Bean over at Bushman Forums.

I have had a few people ask me about what the shakuhachi is in emails and I thought as an aside I would put a clip of me playing the shakuhachi up.   This is me playing a Japanese honkyoku named Choshi on my favorite 2.1 Grass and Wind jinashi shakuhachi.  Click here to listen to Choshi.   I have to warn you it is a little different than you may be used to.  Here is a picture of me playing the shakuhachi on Dauphine St. in New Orleans recently.

John Schaman sent me some pictures today from Canada.  While he was at a Canadian blues festival there was a seminar where Carlos Del Junco got ot hear John's HG2.  Carlos remarked that he liked it and wanted to use it for his show that night.  Obviously that's a huge compliment and I really appreciate John's time with showing the amp to Carlos.  I heard he enjoyed using it and I have talked to Carlos a few times since then.   As many of you know Carlos is an awesome player but he is an even better person.

Tonight I had the pleasure of sitting in for a few songs with a great band from the Tampa area.  They are the Back Alley Blues Band.  They were one of the few bands I have seen in this area that are a true blues band.  They were the type of band that makes it easy to sit in because they are so tight and with it.  The harp player in the band is Joe Sadowski and he was a great player.   They are the type of band that you can feel when they play.  They're not just going through the paces on stage, they are into it and you can tell they have a great time doing it.   Thanks again guys and I will see you again soon.   If you are in the Tampa area or are coming here for vacation I really endorse this band as a must see while you are here.
