Update August 2019:

"MOZ LIVE", the exciting new CD from the Chris Fast Band, recorded live at the Mozambique Steakhouse in Laguna Beach, California. Ten solid tracks of live, west coast harmonica blues. Please give me a mailing address, and I will mail you a FREE copy of "MOZ LIVE".

If you like it, you can pay me what you think it's worth. If you don't like it, keep your money and use the CD as a free coaster or perhaps a Frisbee. Thank you all for your support! International sales welcome! Here's my >e-mail address: fastchrisfast(ad)


Chris about our instruments: "I am ecstatic to be associated with Seydel Harmonicas because, simply stated, they are the best sounding harmonicas I have ever played. The build quality and the ease of playing make it simple to create the music that I feel. Thank you Seydel!"
