Checkerboard Lounge team up with Paul Williamson’s Hammond Combo for the very first time ever! in the Ruby Carter Lounge. Who would have thought?

Legendary underground institution, Checkerboard Lounge, deliver a dynamic, soulful well of emotion and playful abandon in collective improvisation over classic blues, soul and originals.

Fresh back from placing as semi-finalists at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis TN, and an inspired new recording at the legendary Sun Studio, word keeps spreading about this formidable act.

Singing drummer Carl Pannuzzo, guitar master Shannon BournE, Hammond virtuoso Tim NeaL and groove bassist Amos Sheehan curate shows fitting to events and venues, no two shows being the same, but each unforgettable live experiences, from standing ovations at Wangaratta Jazz Festival to crammed inner Melbourne pubs.

The Paul Williamson Hammond Combo is the most swinging and enduring Hammond trio in Melbourne jazz history.

Formed more than 20 years ago, they continue to swing and groove like no other band, firmly rooted in the tradition of Jimmy Smith, Lonnie Smith, Jack McDuff and the other Hammond greats.

Paul Williamson has toured with everyone from Jo Jo Zep and Dire Straits, to Vince Jones to the great Hammond player Jimmy McGriff. He is one of the most in-demand tenor saxophonists in Australia and a treat to hear play in any context, but none more so than his own trio.
