Wizards of the Harp
Rod Piazza was turned onto music early thanks to his older brothers. As the 45′s spun round Rod’s passion grew. At 14 he received his first harmonica and played duets over the radio with Slim Harpo, Buster Brown, and Jimmy Reed. A couple of years later he joined his first band. Playing gigs about town the band gained recognition with the locals. In 1968 an new band by the name of, Bacon Fat, was formed. A series of chance encounters Rod found himself sitting in on a very popular show (by happenstance). Slowly but surely Rod had become a Southern California harmonica favorite. For this show he brings, The Mighty Flyers and James Harmon, Linwood Slim, and Billy Watson also on the harmonica.
