Just a taste of my past...



Bob "Hoochie Coochie" Paolucci (Hooch for short) is a North Jersey native musician/songwriter and has been playing harmonica for over forty years as well as playing guitar and singing for over thirty-four years. He is a mostly self-taught musician, with the exceptions of having the great honor of having studied with both Sonny Terry (country/folk blues great) and Harry Feldman (chromatic virtuoso with The Harmonica Rascals).   Hooch has been lucky enough to have toured with two great guitar legends, Son Seals (where he got his "Hoochie Coochie" nickname) and Louisiana Red, and has also shared the stage with performers like Big Bill Morganfield (Son of Muddy Waters), Johnny Johnson, Shamika Copeland, Koko Taylor, Junior Wells, Mark Hummel, Johnny Winters, Sammy Lawhorn, Victoria Spivey, Vassar Clemens, the 1995 Blues Hall of Fame recipient Mr. Sam Taylor, Eddie Shaw, Jimmy Vivino & The Conan O’Brian Band, Little Sammy Davis, Eddie Brogotti (Young Rascals), Todd Wolfe (guitarist for Sheryl Crow), Odessa, and even (Oh My God) Don Ho.

Hooch's varied musical styles include everything from burning Chicago blues to melodic Delta blues to country rock to country western to reggae to jazz.  His firm belief that there is no one way to play the harp and no one musical genre to play with it shows in his style and in his engaging performances. 

In 2005, with the help of Frank "Of The Future" Otte, Richard Thiel and Eddie "The Hat" D'Alessio we have won the Long Island Blues Society's Local blues talent competition and became semi-finalists at the prestigious International Blues Challenge (IBC) in Memphis, TN.   With the winning of this local contest and the release of the new CD "Fly Right", 2005 was a very successful year for the band with a lot more to come.

After performing together for over 40 years, in 2007, Hooch and real life brother PP reunited and handily became finalists at the Memphis IBC.

Hooch is a proud member of and contributing writer and technical liaison to the Long Island Blues Society.

Hooch only uses Hohner Harmonica's.
