The Hammond B3 organ has been an important instrument in church, jazz, blues, rock and pop music. The title of the February

exploring the development and use of the Hammond B3 organ and its contemporary surrogate, the SK1 Hammond. Jon will be joined by Gary Newmark (drums) and Rich Severson (guitar) in playing
what Jon describes as “Swinging Funky Jazz and Blues.” - Fresno County Woodward Park Regional Library
