A note from Hike Handler, aka Harmonica Mike:
You may have heard the Harmonica Mike, that's me, got his harp case taken from his car last week. Over 15 harps plus a cool chromatic are gone. Please join me and the Rattlerz for a fun fundraiser to help restore my harmonica health. At today's prices, we're talking $500 to $700 in new hardware. (Thanks to the Candyman for the nice discounts). So come out and thanks in advance for all the good wishes and for helping me get back on my harmonica feet.
Here's the details:
Event: HARP-A-THON fundraiser to replace Michael Handler's stolen harmonicas
Where and When: The Tin Star Saloon, 411 W Water St, Monday Aug 24, 7 to 11 (or longer)

This is be like the old rent party,and thanks in advance for helping me pay the "rent" on some new harps...... know you what they say, a harp player without a harp is like a.....hey, what DO they say???
