About Sammy Meyers
“Do what I did, listen to a lot of harmonica or sax players and incorporate their styles with your own.”
Sammy plays Master Class Hohner harps with a bullet mic and two old Fender Bassman amps; he can play professionally in 3 or 4 keys with just one harp. He started his musical career playing trumpet in the Piney Wood school band in Mississippi. While in school, he started buying 25-cent plastic harps so he could cross over his licks from the trumpet to the harp. Sammy learned the blues from records his schoolmate had, records like Louie Jordan, T-bone Walker and just a lot of big band sound. His favorite harp players are Walter Horton and Sonny Boy Williamson. Sammy would like to thank: Robert Lockwood, Jr.
