Dov Hammer
Dov Hammer is has been at the forefront of the Blues scene in Israel for over 2 decades. Today he is the frontman for "The Blues Rebels", and in the past has led "The Daily Blues" and "CG & The Hammer". His original music has appeared on 6 albums (one by "The Daily Blues" , four of CG & The Hammer and one solo acoustic album "Going Deep").
Over the years he has played with many great Blues artists, including Joe Louis Walker, Lucky Peterson, Bernard Allison, Zora Young , Deitra Farr, Billy Branch, "King" Earnest Baker, Paul delay, Hans Theesink, Willie Kent and others.

Originally from the USA, now living in Tel Aviv, Hammer started playing harmonica while serving in the Israeli army, finding it much more practical to carry around then the bass guitar he had played before. After a year of busking on the streets in the USA and Ireland, Dov Hammer joined the band of Canadian blues artist Ted Cooper for four years of non-stop Blues.
He has played at the prestigious Rochester (NY) Jazz Festival in 2005 and toured eastern Europe, playing at the “Blues nights” festival in Lithuania in 2007. Dov Hammer has also played onstage and on the recordings of many top Israeli pop artists, such as Yahli Sobol, Shai Gavso, Miki Gavrielov and Arkadi Duchin, with whom he recorded a TV special.
His harmonica playing is also featured on many TV commercials and film soundtracks.
This is why he prefers playing Seydel harmonicas: “These are great harmonicas – durable, responsive , airtight, great sound. They sound just right, straight out of the box - What more can you ask for?”
