This film will blow your mind…especially for followers of NY’s The Jon Hammond Show TV show on MCTV, Time Warner & RCN in Manhattan and the Bronx. 3 of the original Late Rent Session Men 15 years after the original sessions in the studio where John Lennon recorded, Intergalactic Studios: TODD ANDERSON – tenor, BARRY FINNERTY – guitar and JON HAMMOND at B3 Organ, joined by drummer JORIS DUDLI from Vienna Austria doing a JH Show standard "POCKET FUNK" (don’t leave a Kleenex in your pocket when you do the laundry!) The camera takes you right on to the bandstand of this legendary now defunct NYC nightspot…(with plenty of light) *Special thanks to Bobbie & George of the Savoy and Adam Scone (‘who will be known’)
*Note: Jon is still doing The Jon Hammond Show on MNN TV on Time Warner & RCN NYC 26th year now and the HammondCast Radio Show 7 days a week on KYOU & KYCY 1550AM in San Francisco CA
