Bill Tarsha and The Rocket 88s Back a Blues Harmonica Blowout

Bill Tarsha and the Rocket 88s led the 18th annual blues harmonica blowout last week at the Rhythm Room.

More than 35 blues harmonica players performed. Tarsha and his band opened with a couple tunes. The blues harmonica players put their names in a hat and after each performance they would pick the next name out of the hat and that blues harmonica player would play two songs.
