“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.”

Roy Clark Television Interview with Jon Hammond just before Roy appeared on the American Eagle Awards in Nashville Tennessee during Summer NAMM Show – Roy Clark an American Living Legend and long-time member of The Grand Ole Opry and The Country Music Hall of Fame – Roy’s wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Clark Roy Linwood Clark (born April 15, 1933) is an American country music musician and performer. He is best known for hosting Hee Haw, a nationally televised country variety show, from 1969 to 1992. Roy Clark has been an important and influential figure in country music, both as a performer and helping to popularize the genre.
During the 1970s, Clark frequently guest-hosted for Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show and enjoyed a 30-million viewership for Hee Haw. Clark is highly regarded and renowned as a guitarist and banjo player, and is also skilled on classical guitar and several other instruments. Although he has had hit songs as a pop vocalist (e.g., “Yesterday, When I Was Young” and “Thank God and Greyhound”), his instrumental skill has had an enormous effect on generations of bluegrass and country musicians. He has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry, since 1987 and The Country Music Hall of Fame. BIOGRAPHY: Born in Meherrin, Virginia, Clark lived as a teenager in southeast Washington, D.C., where his father worked at the Washington Navy Yard. At 14, Clark began playing banjo, guitar, and mandolin, and by age 15 he had already won two National Banjo Championships and world banjo/guitar flatpick championships. He was simultaneously pursuing a sporting career, first as a baseball player and then as a boxer, before dedicating himself solely to music. At 17, he had his first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry.
At the age of 23, Clark obtained his pilot’s license and then bought a 1953 Piper Tri-Pacer (N1132C), which he flew for many years. This plane was raffled off on December 17, 2012, to benefit the charity Wings of Hope. He has owned other planes, including a Mitsubishi MU-2, Stearman PT-17 and Mitsubishi MU-300 Diamond 1A bizjet.
