The 51st Annual SPAH Convention
Airport Renaissance Hotel, 9801 Natural Bridge Rd, St Louis, MO
Annual gathering of harmonica players from all around the world. Famous world class musicians freely mingle with the beginning and intermediate level players in attendance. Shows, seminars, presentations, vendors... and of course the infamous late night jam sessions!
My third year in charge of Staging & Production, now also on the entertainment committee. This years location is a repeat, this hotel was really good last year, I highly recommend it.
Something for evryone: Blues, Classical, Cajun, Celtic, Country, Bluegrass, Old Timey, Jazz, Traditional Trios, 20+ member harmonica bands... any genre you can think of.
I'm also producing the pre-SPAH Blues Blowoff again at BB's Jazz, Blues & Soups. BB's is a national blues venue next to the baseball stadium in downtown St Louis, this is the traditional "unofficial" SPAH kickoff event on Tuesday Aug 5th and not included in the SPAH registration. All are welcome!
