Story of a Mooncat


Jason Ricci is one of the most popular harmonica players on the planet today. Listed in almost every top ten list of players on the internet today Jason Ricci is a polarizing force always in the spot light and on the tips of critics, artists and fans tongue’s everywhere. Through two plus decades of endless touring, TV appearances, recordings and the internet Jason Ricci’s style of playing is so revolutionary and influential that there exists an entire younger generation of players imitating his music, clothes, gear, and even stage presence. Nick named “Moon Cat” (a street name he once used in Nashville and New Orleans to avoid police detection) Jason has been an almost constant force for decades in the studio, festivals, club dates and press. Love him or hate him, through performing, singing, song writing, teaching, harmonica playing and activism in the fields of L.G.B.T., mental health and addiction, it is not an overstatement that this young, white, queer, skateboarding, punk rock loving, multiple convicted felony having Moon Cat from Maine is currently changing the world through music and education.
  • Jason was a featured performer on Johnny Winter’s Grammy award winning CD ‘Step Back’ (2014)
  • Has received multiple Blues Music Award Nominations 2009 – 2016, and won a Blues Music Award in 2010.
  • Featured performer at the Rock & Roll hall of fame with Zac Brown & Tom Morello for the Paul Butterfield Blues Band induction in 2015
  • Jason has worked and/or recorded with Junior Kimbrough, RL Burnside, Nick Curran, Walter Trout, Ana Popovic, Cedric Burnside, Joe Louis Walker, Peter Karp, JP Soars, Nick Moss Sue Foley, and many others.

I will continue to make free instructional videos for harmonica on you tube, continue to play benefits for great causes and charities, continue to make more blues stories videos and LGBTQ and Mental health awareness videos. Also I will take direct requests from Patreon contributors for videos and make them as soon as I can!
Goals
$703 of $1,250 per month
Try to accumulate enough money to make better choices musically and not have to continue to take gigs that hold me back and diminish the value of my projects just to eat and pay bills. Also make a new record/CD since most the record labels have gone away. Thank you!
