Here are a few videos from the Sun King Brewery that JJ performed at not too long ago. They are really well done, so I figured I ought to repost them so those who have yet to see them can enjoy them.

Thanks, DT, for putting them all in a post.  I forwarded the link to this conversation to several friends, maybe we'll get some more members out of it.  Great performance, too!

I was in Indianapolis in March and had some Sun King beer myself... I didn't get time to visit the brewery like I wanted, though.

Hohner is the brand of the Harp, Marine Band is the model name of the harp.  Marine Band harps have been around for a long time, over a hundred years now, and is arguably the most popular harp out there.  Alot of musicians swear by the Marine Band and rightfully so, they are quality harps for an affordable price.  There are all sorts of types and models of harps out there to do specific things or be made of certain materials.  Marine Bands have a wood comb.  They give a great sound, but wear faster than plastic combs or any metal combs obviously.  Each harp has a key, so it's not like you can use just one for every song like regular instruments.  Plus, they wear down with time and being played that it can get pretty pricey to have at the ready and in good shape.  At $40 a pop for say a Marine Band harp, if you carry 10 keys with you, that's $400 and they will need to be replaced at some time on down the road.  You can fix them by replacing the reeds and maintaining them, but it's not much cheaper to do so and time consuming, that it's just easier to buy a new one, especially if you are on the road as much as JJ is.  You'll notice every now and then during a show, JJ will have a harp go out on him while playing a song and instead of fixing it like you would a broken string on a guitar, he gives it away to a fan in the crowd, grabs his back up and goes back to work.
