Everyone knows of the San Francisco harmonica troupe "Those Darned Harmonicas!" Their name, no doubt is based on "Those Darned Accordians!" They play every size and key of mouth organ. Entire suites are performed using no other instrument. Small venues are best for harmonica quintets and they have played at the Duck Creeke Inn, Chez Spencer, Radish, and the K.O. Room. Another harmonica favorite of ours is Tin Sandwich, a one-man band. He wears a coat of many pockets where he keeps his many harmonicas from peewee to one the size of a roast beef sandwich.
