NEW! Purchase Harmonica Instruction Books by Steve from Hal Leonard:
Steve Cohen plays and teaches harmonica & guitar, and sings the blues in his own unmistakable style. He’s been performing and recording in the Milwaukee area since 1970. He is also a vinyl record dealer and booking agent . Steve is sponsored by Hohner Harmonica Inc. His work is featured on many Hal Leonard harmonica play along books.
Here's a link to a quick video that was shot to promote my "100 Authentic harmonica Licks" book for Hal leonard music publishing:
I checked my site this morning and could tell it had been a while since I updated, My last post was January and here it is mid-May!
So, I have updated my calendar for those of you looking for my performance schedule.
It seems as though I am paring back my performances now that I'm in my mid-60s. I still enjoy playing and will continue as long as I can, but outside of a few favorite spots like the Cheel and Morton's, I am mostly playing private events and festivals this summer, as a band leader.
As a sideman,a bright spot includes an association with Sheboygen-ite Jim Oldschmidt, an old friend and fellow musician whom I have known for decades but only started playing with in the last year. Jim is pro-actively booking dates in the Milwaukee/Sheboygen corridor, and I am happy to be included on some of them,.
Junior Brantley returns at the end of June for his annual sojourn from Las Vegas, and it is always an inspiration to play with him.
I do have a new harmonica instruction booking coming out
later this year, published by Hal Leonard.
So, the summer brings a nice mix of gigs at festivals, parties and other special events as well as the Cheel once a month. This year, I have scheduled a fair amount of vacation travel time as well.
Hope to see you out there sometime soon!
