Festival Quick Links

John-paul started playing Hammond organ at the age of 10 and since then has  developed his own style – which is also heavily influenced by Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff and Joey DeFrancesco.

During his studies at Coventry University, he was also offered a place at the Berklee Music College in the USA.

John-Paul’s recent credits are appearing with his own band – John-Paul Gard’s Pedal Mania – but also with, The Nigel Price Quartet, Antony Kerr, The Eddie Martin band (Blues) The Lee Goodall Trio, Mike Britton Trio and The Esmond Selwyn Organ Trio.

A great success that John-paul is currently part of is The Jon Dalton Organ Trio based in Venice Beach USA which has recently released the album “Warm ghosts in a Cold World” .

After a lifetime of influence from the great Jimmy Smith, John-paul has recently recorded his own album “Come on Rita”, which is all his own compositions with his trio.
