Harmonica Showcase

Harmonica Showcase at Black-eyed Sally’s.

Dave Robbins brought another  “Northeast Blues Harmonica Showcase.”  An unforgettable display of touring Blues Harmonica artistry.  Heading the show was world-class harmonica player and vocalist Darrell Nulisch.  Joining him were Boston’s Jim Fitting, Boston’s top shelf Blues Lady, Cheryl Arena, and  New England Harp Burner, The Kosher Kid.

Supplying the backing to these players will be the talented Danny Draher Band.  Draher has been making news with his induction into the New York Blues Hall of Fame.  He has released a new CD and will be in the CTBS Challenge Finals.  The band includes Steve Peck and Johnny Ace on the bass.

    Darrell has a long history with his own bands, plus years with Ronnie Earl and Anson Funderburgh, but on this night, Cheryl Arena stole the show.
