I’ve had the privilege to perform with the Rio Grande Valley’s very own, Johnny Harper’s The HardTimes Blues Band. The performance on this video was shot at Blues on the Hill in Harlingen, Texas, back in June 2014. Performers for the event included Ram Danesse, The Peterson Brothers, and Diunna Greenleaf. The following day, I made my way up to Oklahoma City. -gk
