Hammond Keys musical influences date back to his 7 years of classical piano training under a lineage of tutors dating back to the Hungarian composer, Franz Liszt.  His radio career, dating back to the late 60’s, evolved into his own music and DJ company where since the early 80’s, he has individually performed as a DJ and pianist at over 1,250 wedding receptions and corporate events. His moniker emerged from his love for the Hammond B-3 organ, a staple of the rock and jazz music scene.  He has toured with several regional show bands and provides this act with his dynamic keyboard, guitar, DJ and vocal abilities, which includes voice impersonations of over 80 characters!

 

 

 

Bernie Boggs - Drums, Percussion, Vocals Bernie’s  career  as  a  drummer  started  in  his  own  high  school  marching band, followed by private lessons from a tutor that performed in the musical Jesus Christ Superstar and played drums in a Christian band at age 13. At 21,  Bernie  toured  solidly  for  three  years  with  “Buckshot”  and  ended  up playing with a group named Street Life, touring the Carolinas, opening for a number of major country artists before moving to Southwest Florida, where he has since played numerous club dates. Bernie’s passion as a drummer also   took   him   into   the   recording   studio   business,   where   he   worked alongside famed James Gang bass player Dale Peters. His vocal abilities, accompanied by his high-end talent as a percussionist and showman make Bernie a welcome addition to the Faces lineup.

FACES OF GINGER: EQUIPMENT SPECIFICATIONS

Faces Of Ginger carries a full complement of sound and lighting gear for most venues and applications,

featuring a 32-channel digital board with a 100-foot 32-channel snake that feeds the six stage monitors.

The system has an output of 3400 watts but can be increased to 7500 watts if needed. All of the channels

that have stereo feeds are fed into the board in stereo, which insures the highest quality sound possible.

The DJ lighting consists of a mirrorball and pin spot, three different lighting devices and a strobe light if one is desired. Additional lighting can be rented if needed for larger events. The current system specifictions can handle crowds of up to 500 people and can be modifid to accommodate much larger venues with no difficlty.

 

The “Faces”, as they are known, come complete with professional instrumentation and amplifiction. For

larger events, Hammond Keys also has a Hammond B-3 organ that can be brought on site for additional

musical effect! (Psst … that’s where “Hammond” got his nickname, because of his love for the B-3 organ!)

Faces Of Ginger's light show is unmatched by any wedding performance band in Florida! We use truss

lights, pin spots, lasers, mechanical effects and strobes ... and that’s just to light up the dance flor! We

also have pin spots out front to showcase the band, plus a mirrorball and pin spot for those magic moments of the era where special lighting is required. We also have a fog machine if one is required. This light show is included with all 4-hour event bookings ... at no extra charge!
