I am maybe not the one to ask.  I think that you should get back to playing....

I have been playing harmonicas for a while.  I have often played for others and often been told it was enjoyed.  One of the big reasons I have played harmonica all my life (I do play other things too) is that it is something that can survive in an seabag that gets thrown aboard as you jump.   I am a waterman (have always been) and so that dictates many things. 

If you get out the harp and someone objects, just put it away or go someplace else. 

I play both marine band in several keys, but always carry a chromatic.  The seabag harps have always been chromatics.  I still have an play my original 64, it has been tuned twice and some reeds may not tune again.  I will keep it because it has been so much a part of my life.  It fortunately was not one of two that were lost with vessels.

Even as I am now retired and not likely to do the throw and jump again (ever), that is part of me.
 
So, play on and enjoy yourself.
