Gospel – New Hammond Sound Project

If you like the sound of Hammond organ(s) then this might be of interest to you.

Sunday March 26, 2023 the New Hammond Sound Project (Carlo de Wijs, Jordi Geuens and Job van Nuenen) will perform Hammond music of the 21st century. This will take place in Tivoli Vredenburg (Utrecht) NL.

The Hammond organ is one of the most iconic instruments of the gospel genre. In the exhibition ‘Gospel. Musical journey of strength and hope’, one of the first copies from 1937 is central. A special instrument with such a recognizable sound that few people will mistake it for something else, inextricably linked to gospel, and unchanged for almost 100 years. At least,… Carlo de Wijs pays tribute to the Hammond organ with his ‘New Hammond Sound Project’.

The musicians surprise the audience with driving beats and beautiful, live visuals. Gospel, jazz, electro and other genres are reviewed!
