EDITORS’ PICK—Best Blower of the Blues Harp

Rick Estrin

There’s a lot to like about Rick Estrin, frontman of The Nightcats (formerly Little Charlie and The Nightcats). It could be his sharp lyrics, his swanky, ’40s-inspired get-ups or his soulful vocals. Maybe it’s that he’s considered one of the best blues harmonica players in the world. Or that you can catch him all the time right here in Sacramento.
