Christchurch Live Music Schedule

Saturday

12noon - Jim Hammond Duo

“Let’s be very clear. Jim Hammond is a very fine musician and a pleasure to work with. He played in the house band on my Radio 4 series Getting Nowhere Fast where the music really must set the tone and style almost instantly. Jim’s superb Boogie woogie piano on my theme tune – with just a dash of Jerry Lee Lewis in the right hand – hit the spot immediately. Jim’s music is rock a billy, boogie boogie and blues, both on guitar, slide guitar and keyboards. He’s a great singer too. It’s a good old good time music that invites you to get up and dance and have a great party. He plays solo, as a duo, or trio or as a full band and no matter what format he uses, Jim will always give you one hundred per cent great music and a great night. Jim Hammond is highly recommended by me. And I look forward to working with him again very soon.” – Mervyn Stutter
