Hammond B3 Emergency Repair: "Dr." Dave Vumback Goff Professional To The Rescue!

3rd generation expert Hammond Organ Repair Man "Dr." Dave Vumback of Goff Professional Organ service and sales to the rescue the other night! He is one of the few people anywhere who is qualified to do this type of repair on my 1959 Hammond B3 Organ here in Times Square NYC *see photos, "Dr." Dave about to apply some serious heat to the B3:

The organ is smokin' now through my Bill Beer Keyboard Products 'Super Nuclear Powered Leslie Speaker', dangerous set up.
Goff has done the organ rigs of all the top touring acts in the Business. I was flattered that Dave said I have one of the best organ rigs he's ever heard. I'm back in business now thanks to "Dr." Dave Vumback and Goff Professional. My highest 5+ stars recommendation for Hammond organ and Leslie Speaker service and sales in Newington CT

Les Paul Happy 93rd Birthday June 9 2008 NYC!

Yesterday I went with my friend Joe Berger to wish a very happy and healthy 93rd Birthday to our old dear friend, main man LES PAUL! We also brought a birthday message from Les' old friend Marty Napoleon, long-time pianist for the great Louis Armstrong.

Enjoy the photos of Les at Irridium where he plays every Monday, pictured with Joe Berger and Les' son Russ Paul, and a good look at the special custom "Les Paul Personal" guitar in Les' hands. Photos by me Jon Hammond, thanks and Happy Birthday Les!
