“Jon Hammond Stolen Giulietti Classic model 127, Serial No. 14258 – USA
by Harley Jones
Well known musician Jon Hammond has now found the serial number of his stolen accordion, a Giulietti Classic model 127 Serial No. 14258.

This accordion was stolen from his mother’s house in Boston, MA in 1976. Picture right of Jon Hammond circa 1976, playing the stolen accordion.

At the time, John was attending Berklee College of Music and this accordion has a history, being an accordion of the great pioneer USA accordionist John Molinari.

If you have any information about the accordion, please email Jon Hammond at:
jonhammond@jonhammondband.com — with Giulietti Accordions USA and GIULIETTI Accordions at Berklee College of Music.

Language English
Like my friend Dick Contino the great accordionist star once told me: “When I break out the accordion it’s like saying hello to an old friend!” Here I’m playing a blues with my custom built Excelsior accordion made by hand by the good folks at Excelsior Accordions & Pigini in Castelfidardo Italy – I have electronics on this instrument, but what you hear here is the pure sound of the high quality steel reeds, I really love this instrument. Mostly I keep it at home because the airlines can be a little rough on the instruments, I was lucky to get it home in one piece from Italy. Always a pleasure to play, enjoy folks, Jon Hammond Band http://www.accordionradio.com/ *Note: for those of you who don’t know, musicians use the term “Wood Shedding” for practicing at home. When a musician says he or she is shedding, that usually means they are home or in a hotel somewhere practicing with their instrument – JH

Third segment – Nashville Tennessee — Harry Shearer Interview with Jon Hammond just before Harry accepted the American Eagle Award along with Crystal Gayle and Patti Smith from the US National Music Council during Summer NAMM Show – for broadcast on Jon Hammond Show on MNN TV Channel 1 in Manhattan – From Harry’s wiki: “Harry Julius Shearer (born December 23, 1943) is an American actor, voice actor, comedian, writer, musician, author, radio host, director and producer. He is known for his long-running roles on The Simpsons, his work on Saturday Night Live, the comedy band Spinal Tap and his radio program Le Show. Born in Los Angeles, California, Shearer began his career as a child actor. From 1969 to 1976, Shearer was a member of The Credibility Gap, a radio comedy group. Following the breakup of the group, Shearer co-wrote the film Real Life with Albert Brooks and started writing for Martin Mull’s television series Fernwood 2 Night.
He was a cast member on Saturday Night Live on two occasions, between 1979–80, and 1984–85. Shearer co-created, co-wrote and co-starred in the 1984 film This Is Spinal Tap, a satirical rockumentary, which became a cult hit. In 1989, Shearer joined the cast of The Simpsons; he provides voices for numerous characters, including Mr. Burns, Waylon Smithers, Principal Skinner, Ned Flanders, Reverend Lovejoy, Kent Brockman, Dr. Hibbert and more. Shearer has appeared in several films, including A Mighty Wind and The Truman Show, has directed two, Teddy Bears’ Picnic and The Big Uneasy, and has written three books. Since 1983, Shearer has been the host of the public radio comedy/music program Le Show, a hodgepodge of satirical news commentary, music, and sketch comedy.”

#WATCHMOVIE HERE: For My Friends In The Nakamichi Audiophile Group

by Jon Hammond



For my friends in the Nakamichi Audiophile Group:
I used good old Maxell Type II cassette tapes for this live recording date I personally recorded on my Nakamichi
550, which I am the original owner purchaser of – I plunked down $550
cash for my Nak at Harvey Electronics on W. 45th Street NYC in 1976 – I
made this recording with 3 Sennheiser
microphones placed around the bandstand in the Ellington Room – the
tune “No X-Cess Baggage Blues” I wrote for my friends at PIA Pakistan International Airlines – they very kindly let me take excess baggage on numerous flights I made with them out of John F. Kennedy International Airport – when you play Hammond Organ, it’s impossible to travel light. I go way back with all of these fine musicians – that’s Chuggy Carter on the percussion – Ray Grapponedrums – Joe Berger aka Joe Berger2 in the string section on his custom built JJ Guitars – tenor saxophonist Todd Anderson, Todd was my teacher for arranging and composition back in 1973 at the Berklee College of Music
in Beantown MA – Todd is also on my very first album ‘Late Rent’ one of
New York’s finest – all these cats are veteran players and studio 
musicians, and I have been around the block a few times myself – yours’ 
truly Jon Hammond at my 1959 Hammond B3 organ and covering the bass as well – through my custom built Bill Beer super high-power Leslie speaker with all JBL
speaker and horn components – enjoy! *Note: When I’m talking, the audio
is back to the vid tape – I just plugged an SM-58 in to a little Fender Amp Can battery powered amp – back to basics and analog, big thanks to Willy Hermann Services William Hermann Jr.

 got my intermittent left channel working! – Jon Hammond Band
– the “Blend Mic” ‘3rd channel’ Nakamichi system gives a unique 3 
dimensional sound to live audio recordings – that’s why even today the 
old Grateful Dead heads crave these machines – can’t beat it – and you get real good at flipping cassettes! – JH

Times Square, New York City.



Here I am with one of my all-time heroes, the honorable Terence Hallinan
– 



when I played Terence’s birthday party a few years back in San 
Francisco CA at Rasselas Jazz Club & Restaurant on Fillmore Street 
when Terence was running for re-election as District Attorney of San 
Francisco, and he was a great DA! The who’s who of San Francisco were 
there in his honor, including former SF Mayor Willie Brown, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi,
Lisa Hallinan and all the Hallinan’s,
 Mayor of New York David N. 
Dinkins, club owner Agonafer Shiferaw – and many more, it was a grand 
party…big honor to play for Terence and everybody there! – Jon Hammond

Jerome John Garcia (August 1, 1942 – August 9, 1995) was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist, best known for his work as the lead guitarist and as a vocalist with the band the Grateful Dead, which came to prominence during the counterculture era in the 1960s.[2][3]Although he disavowed the role, Garcia was viewed by many as the leader or “spokesman” of the group.[2][3][4][5]
One of its founders, Garcia performed with the Grateful Dead for their entire thirty-year career (1965–1995). Garcia also founded and participated in a variety of side projects, including the Saunders–Garcia Band (with longtime friend Merl Saunders), the Jerry Garcia Band, Old and in the Way, the Garcia/Grisman acoustic duo, Legion of Mary, and the New Riders of the Purple Sage (which Garcia co-founded with John Dawson and David Nelson).[2] He also released several solo albums, and contributed to a number of albums by other artists over the years as a session musician. He was well known for his distinctive guitar playing and was ranked 13th in Rolling Stone‘s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” cover story.[6]
Later in life, Garcia was sometimes ill because of his diabetes, and in 1986 went into a diabetic coma that nearly cost him his life. Although his overall health improved somewhat after that, he also struggled with heroin and cocaine addictions,[4][5] and was staying in a California drug rehabilitation facility when he died of a heart attack in August 1995 at the age of 53.[3][5] Birth name: Jerome John GarciaBornAugust 1, 1942

His mother’s ancestors were Irish and Swedish.[7] He was born in the Excelsior District of San Francisco, California, on August 1, 1942, to Jose Ramon “Joe” Garcia and Ruth Marie “Bobbie” (née Clifford) Garcia,[8][9][10] who was herself born in San Francisco.[7] His parents named him after composer Jerome Kern.[8][11][12] Jerome John was their second child, preceded by Clifford Ramon “Tiff”, who was born in 1937.[13][14] Shortly before Clifford’s birth, their father and a partner leased a building in downtown San Francisco and turned it into a bar, partly in response to Jose being blackballed from a musicians’ union for moonlighting.[15]
Garcia was influenced by music at an early age,[16] taking piano lessons for much of his childhood.[17] His father was a retired professional musician and his mother enjoyed playing the piano.[8] His father’s extended family—who had emigrated from Spain in 1919—would often sing during reunions..
