I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my friend Jo Mikovich!

He was the coolest cat ever and wonderful musician, teacher, Family Man – Rest In Peace Jo, sincerely, Jon Hammond

1994 performance of “Hip Hop Chitlins” JON HAMMOND Band onstage in Frankfurt at Jazz Kneipe club where
Jon played 207 gigs while living in Frankfurt with many musicians and sometimes solo at the organ.
Joined here by old band mates James Preston drums of Sons of Champlin, Barry Finnerty guitar and Sgt. Al Wittig
of U.S. Airforce Kaiserslautern. Also cameos by Jo Mikovich tenor sax and Harry Petersen alto.
Special thanks to Regina who finally shut the club down about 10 years ago and moved to Spain, I hope she will see this!
A few glitches from very old video which survived many journeys since.
Thanks to all the Frankfurters, Frankfurt rocks! sincerely, Jon Hammond & Band ©JH INTL

R.I.P. the great Jo Mikovich, also my dear friend as well, Professor Klaus Meier here in the photo from the good old days,

I am heart broken to receive this news this morning – my deepest condolences to his Brother Mirko Mikovich and the whole

Mikovich Family, sincerely,

Jon (Hammond)

The Japanese Cat Meets Jon Hammond by Hamamatsu Art Museum Kimono Exhibition

On the way to see the Hamamatsu Art Museum Kimono Exhibition a funny thing happened, we met a Japanese cat in the wild! http://www.city.hamamatsu.shizuoka.jp/artmuse/
This Yamaha Motorcycle Art Piece Greets You At The Door, Left From A Previous Exhibit
Well, somehow we got lost on the way to the Hamamatsu Castle Ruins Museum Ruins Following These signs…but that’s ok, we finally found it after a nice stop at The Jolly Pasta restaurant we found way past the Castle
Finally made it…and with 2 pizzas to go from the Jolly Pasta made by my new friend Rajesh Thapa the Nepalese genius cook at Jolly Pasta (who also showed us how to find the Castle)
When the original owner of the Hamamatsu Castle packed heat, here was his piece
Ieyasu Tokugawa lived here for 17 years http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tokugawa_Ieyasu
I sure enjoyed meeting and playing a concert for the founder and President of Suzuki Instruments MANJI SUZUKI it was a huge honor. Here we are at the console of the incredible B3mk2 Hammond Organ that was designed and built right here at Suzuki World Headquarters in Hamamatsu as a faithful recreation of the original Hammond B3
My friend Mr. Hiromitsu Ono is the Chief Engineer behind the Suzuki Hammond organs that I play, he is one of my all time heroes like The Beatles!
This is my favorite view of the console of the Hammond B3mk2 Organ in Suzuki Hall with my Girlfriend Jennifer looking on at sound check, beautiful !
