Tony Monaco is one of the most impressive grooving musicians you’ll ever have a chance to see. He represents Hammond each year at NAMM, and this year was no exception.
Monaco was demonstrating the range of sound he could get by using the combination of a laptop to generate beats, pedals for bass, and the two Hammond keyboards to trigger organ, synth & electric piano sounds.
Monaco isn’t just an incredible musician – he also always makes you feel like he remembers you and appreciates that you came to see him do his thing.
We heard stories about a mysterious unofficial NAMM jam-bus that he’s been known to play at after hours, into the morning hours. If you know anything about the NAMM jam bus, let me know!
