On his first visit to Australia, there was only one
music store that the famous Joey D wanted to
Joey was a special guest of Melbourne’s new
jazz club; Birds Basement. He played two shows
a night for six nights straight (phew) on the club’s
new Hammond B3 organ. It’s a swish venue
where the audience is treated to a rare, intimate
musical experience. Joey played on the club’s
new Hammond B3 organ, with a Leslie speaker to
give a full, shattering sound.
Joey dropped in to the store on July 14, 2017 to meet
some of our Hammond owners and share tips
about his unique playing style. He’s a warm,
personable guy and was thrilled to meet Aussie
Hammond players. He even played a duet with
Bernie of “House of the Rising Sun”!
