Hammond Forms Hall of Fame and Celebrates 80th Anniversary

This year marks 80 years that the Hammond Organ company has been manufacturing the “King of Instruments”! To celebrate, Hammond is forming a Hall of Fame recognize and commemorate significant artists who have advanced the legacy of the iconic electric organ. Hammond has assembled a list of over 100 candidates encompassing all styles of Hammond playing and listed them on their Facebook page. Voting for the top 25 Hammond Hall of Fame finalists is open to the public. The final selections will then be made by a Blue Ribbon Panel of journalists, artists, and executives who will elect the first inductees. A special induction ceremony and concert will be held during the 2014 Winter NAMM trade show in January.

In addition to the Hall of Fame, Hammond is establishing the Laurens Hammond Award to recognize significant non-musical contributors to the legacy and development of the Hammond Organ.

Voting for the Hall of Fame finalists opened October 6 and continues through November 30. Voters are eligible to win free hammond T-shirts and Hammond Leslie pedals!
