The fellows in the following 6 sections play primarily, but not exclusively the diatonic harmonica (i.e. blues harp or standard 10-hole variety). Be sure to take a look at the incredible women harmonica players who have their own page.
Although once only the domain of chromatic harmonica players, new harmonica technologies and techniques like overblows have made it possible for diatonic players to make great music in the world of jazz. Links include: Howard Levy, Mike Turk, Richard Hunter, Chris Michalek, and others.
These players are too difficult to classify in only one genre of music. Links include: Norton Buffalo, Lee Oskar, Jean Jacques Milteau, Peter Madcat Ruth, and others.

Here are Dave Gage's sons, Brody and Alex, now called the Brothers Gage, back when they were 10 and 12 year old kids. This video shot in 2015, is an unedited take playing an improvised blues and country based jam and having a bunch of fun.
One plays rhythm beatbox harmonica while the other takes a solo. They are both playing a standard key of "C" 10-hole diatonic in 2nd Position (which is also known as "Crossharp"). They both learned to play harmonica around age 5 and now also sing, play guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards. The key to getting good is consistency. They still practice every single day.
