The following classes will begin Tuesday night, January 26th, 2016 and run for 8 weeks straight through March 15, 2016.

"Beginner's Harmonica for Adults (ages 13 and above)" - Tuesdays 6:30pm-7:45pm
You will learn to play simple traditional folk songs and elementary blues on one of America's most popular, portable instruments. Basic techniques such as bending, trilling, tongue-blocking, vibrato and wah-wah will be covered. Individual attention will be given to each student. No musical background is required. Bring a 10-hole diatonic key of C major harmonica such as the Hohner Special 20, Hohner Pro Harp or equivalent to the first class.

"Blues Harmonica 1" - Tuesdays 8:00pm-9:15pm
The harmonica's unique sound is integral to the distinctiveness of many great blues bands. Learn some techniques and styles of background and lead playing. We will work on songs by Slim Harpo ("Something Inside Me," "Raining In My Heart"), Little Walter ("Last Night," "Hoochie Coochie Man"), Sonny Terry ("Bring It On Home To Me"), etc. Bring a 10-hole diatonic key of C-major harmonica such as the Hohner Special 20, Hohner Pro Harp, or equivalent, to first class.

About the instructor:
Seth Holzman, (BA Music, Syracuse University) has been playing harmonica since 1965, teaching harmonica since 1975, and has performed with Muddy Waters, Koko Taylor, Ronnie Earl, Roomful of Blues, Magic Slim & The Teardrops, and many others. Seth was inspired to play by (and eventually studied with) the great blues harmonica player Sonny Terry. He is a caring and thoughtful instructor who teaches the techniques and musical knowledge he wishes he had known when he began his own studies. Seth currently performs with several bands in the greater Philadelphia area, including Johnny Never & Zep Harpo, Dr. Ben's Backbone Blues Trio, and Stevie & The Bluescasters.

Tin Angel
20 S. 2nd Street, Phila., PA 19106

Direct from Cuba, Habana Sax are a quintet of Cuban jazz musicians on saxophone and percussion with an amazing array of styles... with its vibrant performance of Afro-Cuban, Caribbean, Salsa, Latin jazz and Brazilian rhythms, Habana Sax represents the continuing evolution of the fiercely energetic music of Cuba.Habana Sax’s show has been described as a wild and glorious journey where African chants may suddenly spin into salsa and without warning salsa becomes the opening movement of a traditional symphonic composition that abruptly becomes a richly textured based jazz piece anchored in pounding Latin percussion.

Dukes of Destiny
Saturday, Febuary 27th, 9 PM
Alma Mater
7165 Germantown Ave, Phila., PA 19119
$12.00

In 1985, five young, local musicians got together and began playing old blues songs in a rambling three-story house in Philadelphia. They decided to take the act on the road as The Dukes of Destiny, a name they got from a matchbook cover urging the reader to “Be the Captain of Your Own Destiny.” 30 years later, they are still playing some of the hottest, most danceable blues and old school soul in the Philadelphia area.
