What we're about

Chicago Harmonica Meetup is a relaxed community of men and women who play the harmonica. We welcome harmonica players of all ages and abilities, from the first time novice to the advanced player.


All members are treated with respect and encouraged to grow. Much of our focus is on new player development; this is the perfect starting point for the interested beginner. Come on out and get started!

There are no dues or fees to join the Chicago Harmonica Meetup community. Membership is free.

Our Meetup mission is to bring harmonica players together from across the Chicagoland area for skill development, friendship and community. All types of harmonica play are welcome, including chromatic and diatonic players.

We are interested in learning and playing all musical genres, including blues, country, pop, classical, folk and traditional standards.

If you are interested in learning how to play the harmonica, or would like to further your current playing and teaching skills and reach new players, Chicago Harmonica Meetup is the group for you. Please bring a harmonica in the key of C to each Meetup. Join us today!

June reminder

Needs a location

It’s mid month and time to start thinking about the last Tuesday. Same place as before. Same time too! We have the taste of Westmont coming up. I’m trying to get a link for anyone who wants to play at the Muddy Waters jam. I don’t have it yet. You can look up Westmont special events and find it. I’ll try and get it posted here. The opening topic will be, solos, riffs and fills. A continuation of last month. Remember the “Jump Blues” thing I was talking about. So I’m looking forward to seeing everyone. Be safe and wear glasses if you need them! Rich
