hammond organist from amsterdam
meet elvis and his hammond a100
Elvis is a Amsterdam based, real Hammond organist, but 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”!
After hearing Milt Buckner, that Hammond sound became the real deal, the heart of his music!
Now Elvis owns one, a beautifully restored &
chopped A100 from 1960 together with a pair of 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.
Sound and gear
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.
Musically, as a hammond organist, Elvis can add great value to your band or projects.
