STEVE GUYGER :: BIO

Philadelphia is home to one of the finest blues harp players in the world, much to the surprise of people not familiar with the "inside" of the blues scene. Over the past twenty-plus years, Steve Guyger, with his band The Excellos, has been dishing out some of the finest blues to be heard anywhere. Steve has toured with Jimmy Rogers, among others, and has played with many of the great Chicago bluesmen, yet he remains one of the best kept secrets in blues. The late William Clarke called Steve "the best harp player I've ever seen." Mark Hummel called him "a monster player." If you have heard Steve play, you know what they're talking about. If you've never heard him, you've missed a lot. Steve began playing harp back in the late 60's on a harmonica given to him by his future sister-in-law. Sometime later, his brother turned him on to Paul Butterfield. Steve's passion for the blues harp took him to Chicago to learn at the feet of the masters of the art. Each trip taught him skills that he brought back to the local bands in which he paid his dues. Steve has shared the stage with the greats in Chicago and the contemporary harp players touring the world today, names like Little Sammy Davis, Carey Bell, Little Charlie & The Nightcats and many others. His playing, vocals and stage presence have earned him a place among the best of the players on stage today. MORE
