HAMMOND ORGAN’S SOUND SOUL SUMMIT V TO ROCK NASHVILLE
Top Artists To Unite At NAMM Expo Launching Revolutionary New Instrument
HAMMOND ORGAN USA announces the lineup for the fifth Sound Soul Summit, to be held during the Summer NAMM Show on June 23, 2016. The Summit is co-sponsored by Keyboard Magazine and Soundcheck LLC, Nashville.
Following the course of previous Sound Soul Summits, Hammond Organ brings together some of their roster’s top artists playing their hits and banding together for once-in-a-lifetime jams. Previous Summits have featured such great artists as Keith Emerson, Felix Cavaliere of The Young Rascals, and Gregg Rolie of Santana and Journey.
This show is particularly significant, as it will feature the first public showing of Hammond’s new XK-5 organ and Heritage Series expanded systems, which represent the cutting edge of technology applied to recreating the precise touch, feel, and sound of the classic Hammond B-3.
Music Director Mark Prentice will lead a top Nashville-based rhythm section (Charlie Morgan and Mike Severs) supporting the Hammond Artist All-Stars, including the living jazz legend Dr. Lonnie Smith, Grammy nominee Paul Brown, Red Young, Jon Hammond, Peter Gallinari, Kevin McKendree (Brian Setzer, Joe Bonamassa) and Yates McKendree, the Reverend Jimmie Smith, and Kim Tibbs. Robby Robinson (musical director for Frankie Valli) will be on hand, as will Jim Alfredson, Gary Swan, Christian Matthew Cullen, and this year’s DownBeat Critic’s Choice Poll winner Brian Charette, and more.
It’s very rare that this many accomplished Hammond organists get to play together, so the excitement level among the musicians is as high as it is for the audience. It’s even rarer to experience players from different genres jamming together. As in past years, some surprise guests are sure to turn up. Four years after the first Sound Soul Summit, attendees still remember it as a highlight of their NAMM experience.
The HAMMOND Sound Soul Summit V will be held Thursday, June 23r, 2016 at 7 P.M. at the Soundcheck Complex, 750 Cowan St., Nashville, TN 37207. Ticketed admission only, with tickets available at the Hammond Booth #430 on the Summer NAMM exhibit floor, or from your official Hammond factory sales representative.
