Download Leroy Airmaster's classic 1988 cassette release "Feedbag"
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:
Interesting gigs coming up.
I had a lot of fun emulating Little Walters's superb playing behind Muddy Waters on 5 classic songs for an upcoming Hal Leonard Harmonica play-along book last week. Actually, 4 songs had Little Walter's playing while 1 song actually had Big Walter.
The previous dozen books I have done all had pieced together pre-recorded backing tracks. This time, we recorded with a live band, Marc Wilson, Dave Kasik and Billy Flynn, and the feel was excellent.
Coming up on November 25th is the 2nd annual Tamarack reunion event at Anodyne. Last year's event was nuts! This year's event promises to be equally excellent...Guests include house band Leroy Airmaster, Junior Brantley, Stokes, Milwaukee Slim, The Andrew Koenig Band w/Benny Rickun, Greg Koch and the Tone Controls, Little Maddie B and possibly some surprise guests as well.
While Junior is in town, we will also play as a trio at the Cheel on the 26th, and with Leroy Airmaster at the Smiling Moose on the 27th.
I still offer lessons through the Wisconsin Conservatory of music. With the holiday season coming up, it's not too soon to consider checking out my harmonica instruction books at Hal Leonard.
I continue to play the 4th Wednesday of every month at the Cheel in Thiensville with the Riccos, a jazz trio with Jeno Somlai and John Ricco.
