Harmonica Jam Camp presents "Ventura Harmonica Day"
World renown blues harmonica player and teachers Rj Mischo and Jon Gindick are teaming up to present a blues harmonica workshop for beginners and intermediates in the afternoon, and a showcase and jam with Hot Roux band in the evening.
Along with having a great time doing what we do best, teach and play harmonica, we are raising funds for The Sonny Boy Club, a music program for children in the Mississippi Delta.
When: Sunday afternoon, June 14, 1pm to 8pm (with breaks)
Where: Ventura Beach Club, Main Street
For instruction: C diatonic harmonica
The instructional program will present a powerful review of blues harmonica basics. Instruction will include understanding Cross Harp power notes, tone, bending, vibrato, articulation, fundamental blues riffs, improvisation, how to jam, singing and harping, leading a band and more.
Intermediates: Jon and Rj will be switching off, one of us teaching the more advanced players at the same time the other is teaching the beginners.
Around 5pm, we'll take a break, and about 6 pm, we will start our harmonica showcase and participant jam with our band. This always makes a great show!
Jimmy's Slice caterers will bring food, and the bar will be open.
Rj and Jon have done about 10 workshops together, and no matter what your level, we know how to get you to the next one, and how to have a great time teaching and playing music.
