: Back in the late 70's a dear friend of mine turned me
: on to a great band from the Milwaukee area (I think)named
: Short Stuff. The band had a great harp player, though I
: don't recall his name. I was wondering if anyone out
: there is familiar with this band and has any idea what
: became of them. Are they still around?
Here's a little something I found:
Although he called his most recent CD Blues for Shut-ins, harmonica star Jim Liban continues to work the local circuit. Over the past 30 years, he's helmed such leading bands as Short Stuff and nowadays leads his own combo. He was among the first white guys from Milwaukee to play this music, and he offers an emotional authority unusual in today's blues scene.
