Harry had a post on Instagram about these guys.
Hard to choose what I wanted to share.

I haven't listened to Danny in awhile; almost forgot how great he was...his sun medley on Cruising deuces has the most amazing solo that floors me every time I hear it; I'll have to take it down to the workshop tomorrow...

So let's do this.

For some time now the main thing playing in my playlist was Vulfpeck. And right now I am listening to the song I want to play soon, **1 for 1, DiMaggio** so that is on my playlist now.

Two of my favorites in an unexpected pairing.


And The Nighhawks; I've always said (well, if not always, at least since '81 when I worked a show with them the first time) that harmonicists fall into 3 groups - John Popper, Mark Wenner, and Everyone Else. And of course Jimmy Thackery does pick a little.

I saw the Nighthawks open for George Thorogood once a long time ago.  I thought the Nighthawks were far better, and Thackery as well.

I've never been a fan of harmonica; maybe one song, but not a whole show.  I guess my ears just always found that sound a bit harsh.

The B.B. King and Jerry Reed was nice.

Part of why I like Mark's harp playing so much is his tone, Dave; he doesn't (or didn't in '80-'84 when they shared a couple of bills with acts* I worked for) have that harshness.  Part of that may be that he was running his Shure Dispatcher "Green Bullet" mic into a daisy-chained series of (IIRC)  tweed Twin, brownface Twin, and blackface Twin Reverb.  But he also has a smooth soulfulness that sets him apart, as well.


*The guys in one of said acts - Big Twist & The Mellow Fellows, who I posted a little while ago - invariably referred to that other guy as "That non-playin', non-singin' mother-F***-er George Thorogood!"

Peter (who does like a good harp - but none as much as Mark's)

Warning the link below has been known to cause Spastic Chicken type "dancing" in older white guys...

The Temptations - Shaky Ground

Some sources claim there are three bass tracks, I can certainly hear two at the beginning.

Enjoy!

I have the vague recollection of Shakey Ground being in the set list of some band or other I was in ages ago; however, it would have been the Delbert McClinton version.
