BILL TARSHA & THE ROCKET 88S
The Rocket 88s have been a solid fixture in the Arizona music scene since the mid 1970s and in the national blues scene...
The Rocket 88s cd "AZ Bootin" with legendary sax player Big Jay McNeely was a 1988 Grammy Award Nominee for best traditional blues recording.
The Rocket 88s are well seasons professional blues musicians touring most of the USA through the years and exciting European audiences. Bill Tarsha, playing harmonica since the mid 60s, is a nationally known world class player winning top harmonica acclaim since the early 1970s.
DAVE "HARMONICA" PREZ
Chicago native Dave "Harmonica" Prez has had a lifetime love affair with the blues. His 40+ years of playing have been aimed at perfecting the style and tradition of the great Chicago harp masters like Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson, James Cotton and Big Walter. Although never achieving prominent national visibility, Dave has been a celebrated and vibrant part of every blues community he’s resided in: Boston, Tucson, Seattle, Houston, the Bay Area and now Phoenix. Through the years Dave has developed into a world class player. Now in his early 60’s, Dave is ready to explode onto the scene. Please enjoy this breakout performance by a harp player with a purpose and passion, aiming to leave his mark on the blues.
