Richard “Magic Dick” Salwitz, the legendary harmonica player for Boston’s legendary J. Geils Band, has recently partnered up with guitar and vocal sensation, Shun Ng, to create one of the most dynamic musical acts to come out of Boston in a long time. The music is soulful blues, rockin’ yet thoughtful and performed by arguably two of the top musicians at their respective instruments. Since 1969, Magic Dick has toured the world playing and blowing away clubs and stadiums with the J. Geils Band.

“You won’t believe your eyes nor your ears, “ says Quincy Jones. “He belies all stereotypes, all premonitions. I was simply blown away by both his soul and his science – his creativity and his uniqueness is astounding.”
Shun is a recipient of the Songwriters Hall of Fame “Holly Prize” and winner of “International Artist of The Year” at the Boston Music Awards.
