Hello Harmonica Lovers!
I’m going to talking about one of the most famous blues harmonica players in the world his name is (Richard Salwitz) right now you’re probably scratching your head and saying I never heard of a harmonica player named Richard Salwitz. He’s known to the world as “Magic Dick” and was born in New London, Connecticut on May 13 1945′ which makes him 70 yrs. old now and still he is still currently performing which I have a video of on another post that you can see here> Harmonica Players memories of the past!
Magic Dick is known for his Rock blues Style Harmonica with the “The J. Geils Band” which was put together in 1968’ he met the members of the band while attending Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts where they were studying technical arts together. Magic Dick was with the J. Geils Band from 1968′ to 1985′ then the band parted ways. Magic Dick combined efforts with co-inventor Pierre Beauregard to create the “Magic Harmonica” which hasn’t gone into production yet. In 2007 Magic Dick toured with the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Revue put together by legendary blues artist Tommy Castro then added Deanna Bogart, Ronnie Baker Brooks and Magic Dick. They toured on the Blues Cruise a floating blues festival that traveled the Caribbean Islands that featured two dozen of the best blues artists!
