Tim Neal
Tim Neal began playing the Hammond organ in 1991 after returning from an overseas tour. He sold his beloved Volkswagen to purchase an X-5 and leslie and began gigging with it. It was from here that he discovered the music of Jimmy Smith, Groove Holmes, Larry Young and the likes. Tim fell in love with the infectious sound of the B3 and joined up with Australian sax great Paul Williamson to form a band that has released 4 CD's and gained a national reputation. Combined with other projects Tim has travelled the country playing at most festivals including Wangarratta, Melbourne International Festival, Manly etc.
One of Tims career highlights was playing with Jimmy Smiths rhythm section in Melbourne where Jimmy used Tims B3, signed it and gave him a lesson after his show! Tims other credits include Bobby Previte (USA), Big Jay McNeely (USA), Randy Crawford (USA), Renee Geyer and his own big band and trio.
In demand as a session player at the same time maintaining a consistent schedule of live work allows Tim to keep developing as a musician trying to harness the powerful sound that is the B3!
