Profile Information

About Me:
My name is Gerry Pearson I'm 61 years young I have been playing harmonica for over 40 years. My greatest influence in music is from my Dad who was very talented and could play anything without even having any previous experience with the instrument. When he first heard me play he said" You'll Never be able to play that thing even the neighbours dog is whinning when you do" Boy reverse Psychology sure worked with me! I finally figured out that to play the harmonica you had to think of it as whistling a tune and from that point on it was Easy. Just before my father passed away he told me "remember when I told you that you would never be able to play? Well son you have come a long way and I have to tell you that I love the way you can play." At my Dad's funeral I played a song in his memory "smile with two harmonicas one in crossharp and the other in straight I only wish he could have heard it. Paul Butterfield, James Cotton, John Mayall, Charlie Musselwhite, Sonny Boy Williamson, Little Walter Horton, Muddy Waters, George Harmonica Smith, Taj Mahal, Junior Wells, Howling Wolf have all influenced my playing especially Paul Butterfield. In the late 70's I learned to play guitar and had my own band along with my Bro John that played strictly original tunes. We used to rent halls and fill them playing just our original tunes. In 97 I moved from Montreal to St Albert where I stagnated for a few years not knowing anyone and finally heard of an open Stage @ Bud's ran by Carmen Cook. This is where I was revitalized and continue to play as often as I Can. Thanks to my Daughter Jen who gave me this website for Christmas www.open-jam.com/. With this site I can post Jams for anyone who wants or needs the opportunity to play and share their Talent with the community. This website dedicated to " A Place where Musicians meet" I'm in two bands one called Blues Emporium and the other Big Daddy and the Blues Hounds.

Now I feel it is the right time to thank you for your friendship and support in 2009. Still busy in studio, still working hard to get something we can call our own stile.
The 30th of december last year it suddenly appear a lighting sceanery on heaven. Luckely I managed to grab a camera and save the image. It was almost like the creator came down in his greatness. With this photo I want to wish you and yours a merry christmas and a happy, new year full of posibilities and great moments.
Peace, love and respect.

Hey Gerry, wishing you a fantastic weekend. Look at this video and be prepared. When it looks like it's going in the right direction remember to change from Rock'n Roll to real slow blues. Enjoy. Take care my friend. Blues'on. Grandpa_Erik
