Dean Landew
Singer, Songwriter, Musician, Producer
“Miguel is the best harmonica player I’ve ever worked with. Not just the best blues player. The best harmonica player. His range is exceptional. He can switch styles on a moment’s notice, and he’s always willing to venture into whatever territory will enhance the piece of music he’s working on at the time. All this, and he’s a genuinely nice guy too.”

Marco Heiland
Private Instructor
”I met Miguel in 2008, when I was looking for a music and harmonica instructor. It was a unique experience. The lessons were the best I’ve ever had; the contents ranged from music history, production to actual playing instruction. The results I got were really great, and I have no words to thank him enough!”

Mark Tipton
Trumpeter, Composer, Music Educator
”Miguel Weissman is one of my favorite musicians to work with! His incredible harmonica playing, his vast knowledge of audio engineering and MIDI programming, and his vibrant creative spirit makes every encounter with him a joy, and a major learning experience. I highly endorse his work!”.

Richard Hunter
Harmonica instructor and musician
“I heard Dean Landew’s record “Indestructible Voices,” which features NYC-based Miguel Weissman on harmonica. Weissman is heavily featured, and this record plays like Springsteen with Magic Dick in the lineup. If you like rock harp, you’re going to eat this record up. Attaway to go Miguel!”

Ellard-James Boles (Moose) is a veteran blues singer, writer and musician. He has played and recorded throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe with such legendary performers as Lou Reed, Greg Allman, Stevie Ray Vaughn, David Bowie, Buddy Miles, James Cotton, Lonnie Brooks, Junior Wells, C. J. Chenier, John Belushi, Steve Marriott, and Steve Miller.

Moose is of African-American, Native American (Choctaw and Cherokee), Cajun, and Georgia redneck descent. He discovered his love for music, specifically the blues, as a young boy. He sang in church choirs at age seven. He got his first taste of the blues from his father, a guitarist and song writer who had jammed with Muddy Waters.

He continues to perform and record extensively. He is currently touring with his Bulletproof Blues Band and invites all blues fans to experience his dynamic performances when ever the opportunity arises.

Moose and the Built Proof Blues Band’s Moving on was produced by Ellard-James and Miguel mixed and co produced with Craig Randal At Brass Giraffe, recorded in 1995. Moose wrote the lyrics, Miguel composed and arranged the music with the Built Proof Blues Band, Ellard-James Boles (Moose): bass and vocals. James “T”T illson: guitar, Earthen Steel: piano, Danny Cipriano: sax, Dan augmented Miguel’s horn lines with the harmonies, Richie Johnson: drums, Miguel Weissman: harmonica.

This Line up traveled from Europe and though the south, and were regulars all along the east coast. They were the first electric band to play at the 92nd street Y. For three years they were the house band at Chicago Blues and the 55 Bar where they warmed up for James Cotton, Buddie Miles, Junior Wells, Dave Maxwell and Clifton Chenier. The band had the honor to play at the UN, jamming with Eartha Kit on TV and having the dubious honor of being the last band to get payed at Dan Lynch before it closed!

Ellard-James Moose Boles, James Tillson and I { Miguel Weissman} played at a club in Fort Lee NJ in February 2015, Moose, Tee and I have been playing off and on for 25 years! We were joined by the talented Tom Cucchiara on drums. Playing with them was like sipping on a warn in pair of slippers. Molded to you foot, just the right amount to stink so no one else would where it, but it feels good! The very talented Nikki Armstrong came by and killed it! My buddy Nicholas Opalenik came by and helped with the sound.

At one point these two women were dirty dancing, the fell in into my lap, I was sitting down, just grazed my lip with my harp and mike! I lived to play another day!
