I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Broke Down Blues - Ronnie Shellist and Gerry Hundt

Gerry Hundt (born May 29, 1977, Appleton, Wisconsin) is an American Chicago blues musician and multi-instrumentalist. His favoured instrument is the mandolin. Hundt released his debut solo album, Since Way Back, in early 2007.
Born in Appleton, Wisconsin, Hundt's family relocated to Rockford, Illinois when he was aged three.

He has garnered respect for his work with other musicians such as John-Alex Mason and Nick Moss. This led to his 2007 solo album, Since Way Back,(on Blue Bella Records), which earned him a nomination for the Blues Foundation 2008 Blues Music Award for Best Instrumentalist, Other (mandolin)

Ronnie Shellist has been working on his craft for 14 years now. Harmonica was his first true passion and anything you hear him play is coming straight from the heart.

He has been a certified teacher as long as he has been playing the harmonica. He worked in the field of education with elementary, middle school, and high school students for over 12 years as a classroom teacher. Those years taught Ronnie a great deal about communicating effectively with others and helped him to hone his teaching skills.

Currently, there is nothing more important to him than sharing his knowledge of the harmonica to help others enjoy playing as much as he does. Ronnie truly wants to see everyone succeed with their musical goals and enjoy the experience along the way.

Ronnie has had several amazing opportunities and experiences throughout his musical journey. In 2005, he had the honor of opening for BB King in Colorado Springs, CO and since then has opened for Robert Cray in Boulder, CO. In 2006, he was featured on the Today Show for his harmonica video postings on YouTube. He currently spends his time creating instructional material for Harmonica123, teaching harmonica, and performing live blues in Denver, CO.

Ronnie prefers playing Suzuki harmonicas.
