“LETS HEAR IT FOR THE GIRLS”
This LEE OSKAR HARMONICAS Campaign, “LETS HEAR IT FOR THE GIRLS” is about female harmonica players inspiring future harp players, both women, men and children, about the love of a portable instrument you can take anywhere in the world and entertain new friends, old friends, family and JAMTROTTERS!

There you will find informative videos on the four women (and also video’s on men) chosen by Lee Oskar to encourage and motivate all levels of harmonica playing. These documentary style video’s will give you insight into their professional and musical lives and the history of their playing.

ABOUT LEE OSKAR
For those of you that don’t know Lee Oskar, this legendary harmonica player was an early creator of the Latin and soul fusion sound. He was an original band member of the band WAR for over 30 years! Lee was a creative member that wrote and recorded many of their top hits. He also performed hits like “Why can’t we be friends”, “Summer”, “The world is a Ghetto”, “Low Rider”, “Slipping Into Darkness”, and “The Cisco Kid”.
Lee’s innovative style playing harmonica as a lead instrument is instantly recognizable. Lee surrounds himself with top level musicians from the Seattle area and their shows are always a delight. Lee has regularly composed, produced, conducted, and performed with other artists and his music has been used for dozens of films and television shows.
Lee continues to perform with the Lowrider Band which includes many of his former original band mates and Lee Oskar & Friends have played regularly in Seattle and other areas and at many charitable events. He began making his awesome harmonica’s back in the early 1980’s and I have been playing them for as long as he has been making them! You can find him touring often all over the world.
Don't miss a show, cause man LEE OSKAR can play a mean harmonica!
