I've freshened up the website... FINALLY! I hope you'll find it easier to move around and find the information you're looking for.

Hammond & Leslie Service

I do all of my own mechanical repairs and refinshing but I save the electronic work for a pair of technician brothers who have become well known for their excellent work in Canada. I am happy to do your Hammond/Leslie repair work or refer it to my technicians as is appropriate.

Wanna Play?

If you're looking for an occasional Hammond sit-in for your band, I'm pretty good at flyin' by the seat of my pants. I know a lot of the old R&B standards, plus what I don't know I can usually pick up on the fly, so give me a shout & lets have some fun! ~ Phil

Our Hammond A100 Console

Our A100 does the lion's share of our rental work. It appears regularly with rising R&B star Jordan John and his Blues Angels (Prakash John and Al Cross). The A100 is also out several times annually with Prakash John and the Lincolns. Hammond artists who have regularly played our A100 include Michael Fonfara, Rob Gusevs, Dennis Keldie and Bernie Senensky. Tony Monaco also played our A100 for a three-day run in Toronto recently. I play it myself in and around the Toronto area with several bands I sit in with. Here's some shots of our A100 in action.
