With dueling harmonicas, a scintillating sousaphone, and the mysterious sheng (the ancient Chinese mouth organ), the band runs the gamut of genres and instrumentation.

Lead Wade Schuman will send the audience home humming & stomping after the romping, dynamic and passionately unique experience that is Hazmat Modine.

(WFLR-FM) Having toured the US, Canada, and Europe more than a dozen times Radcliff always leaves audiences stunned with “his jaw-dropping skills as a guitarist.” (Blues Review)

Claiming the harmonica as his instrument of choice, Steve Guyger has been studying the blues since his teens. Mastering the intense grittiness of Chicago-style harp playing landed Guyger one of his best gigs in 1980; a call from Jimmy Rogers.

Guyger's performances are enhanced by his fine clear voice and his preservation of harp tradition with a unique and refreshing twist!
