hammond organist from amsterdam

meet elvis and his hammond a100

One can say that Elvis Sergo is a real Hammond organ player, but he actually started playing it at
the age of 16, after accidentally hearing Milt
Buckner play his version of the well known
standard “Take the A-Train”!

Before that Elvis started out on an electronic
organ, which was a familiar instrument in many homes throughout the ’70’s & ’80’s.

After hearing Milt Buckner, that Hammond sound became a big deal, the heart of his music!
Now Elvis owns one, a beautifully restored &
chopped A100 from 1960 together with a pair
Leslies 760, both reamped with tube amplifiers.
The built in M.I.D.I. takes Elvis to a new level of playing, making sure he fits-in in almost any type
or style of music.
This makes the use of external synth’s & effects
very attractive and within reach, which
Elvis indeed uses very frequently.

Since his passion for music is not restricted to
jazz only, Elvis plays styles like Jazz-Rock,
Soul-Jazz, Latin (Brazilian & Cuban) & Blues with numerous dutch bands in the Netherlands & Europe.
A little but noteworthy detail: Elvis plays bass parts with his feet on the bass pedals!
Which makes him un exceptional & versatile Hammond player & musician.

His sound can be described as ‘hardcore vintage’
with his Hammond A100 at the heart of it,
a beautiful analog bass-synth, all that completed
with an analog delay for exploring more
and different sound effects.

You can hire Elvis as a studio musician if you need some real Hammond parts to spice up your musical production or band sound.
He has professional (digital) gear needed to record, edit & process music by request, as well as a
digital Hammond SKx, if preferred.

Check out the video’s from his band The Fabulous Jets! and other bands Elvis plays in
like Soweto Soul (South African music experience) or BongoMatik (Latin, Funk & Fun!).
