Jon Hammond Live at Bernies

Call for Price

Jon has played professionally since the age of twelve and is now a world renowned Hammond B3 player. Beginning as a solo accordionist, he later played the B3 in a number of important San Francisco bands. His all original group HADES opened shows for Tower of Power, Quicksilver Messenger Service and Michael Bloomfield. Moving East he attended the Berklee College of Music, played venues as diverse as Boston’s “Combat Zone” during the ’70’s and the exclusive Wychmere Harbor Club and toured with the successful show revue “Easy Living”. Subsequently, Jon has lived and traveled throughout Europe where he has an enthusiastic following.

I especially want to thank Bernie for inviting Jennifer and I, his wonderful daughter Michelle for organizing the evening and my good friend from Hammond Europe Michael Maier Falkenstein. I would also like to thank swinging Melbourne drummer Michael Jordan for making it down on a last-minute call from Bernie to take care of business on the drums.


I own 2 Hammond B3’s myself and have played them up to 7 nights a week, so I can tell you that the organ you will hear on this recording, the “New B-3” digital has captured the sound and feel of the B3 that we all know and love right down to the most subtle effects, it is indistinguishable from the classic mechanical tone wheel Hammond.
