Harmonica Blow Out with Jim Liban, Steve Cohen, Matthew Skoller and Benny Rickun Harmonica Blow Out with Jim Liban, Steve Cohen, Matthew Skoller and Benny Rickun 8:00pm $10.00 Jim Liban set the standard for Wisconsin area harp players with his group Short Stuff in the late 1970s. His dynamic showmanship and innovative harp playing was well ahead of it's time then. He continues to play with great taste and a high level of authority with his current group, the Jim Liban Blues Combo. Steve Cohen made his mark in the 1980s with his group Leroy Airmaster. He is sponsored by Hohner Inc., the world's largest maker of harmonicas. His playing displays it's own distinctive style, whether playing blues or in other idioms. Matthew Skoller cut his teeth listening to Jim and Steve in the Milwaukee area in the early 1980s. His early groups like the Raw Rockers featured many of Milwaukee's finest blues musicians. Since relocating to Chicago 30 years ago, he has carved out his place as one of the finest harp players in the very competitive windy city blues market. Benny Rickun is among the most recent and most talented additions to the rich Milwaukee blues harmonica tradition. He is an active Chicago style player, working regularly with Reverend Raven, Perry Weber, and many others.
