SEVEN BOYS PLAY BIG HARMONICA (Feb, 1932)

These kids should get themselves a midget brass section.

SEVEN BOYS PLAY BIG HARMONICA

Seven boys are needed to play a huge harmonica recently demonstrated at Detroit, Mich., and which is declared to be the largest of its kind in the world. It measures eight feet in length, giving sufficient space for each performer to render the part assigned to him in music orchestrated especially for the big instrument. There are 770 notes in all on the scale of the gigantic mouth organ.

    Yuck, I hope there is some sort of barrier between the sets of notes for the different mouths. Didn’t this seem strange even back then?
