Tim Jones, also known as Preacherman, recorded under Midi Man, Ironing Board Band and T.J. Hustler. He made one very rare LP (recently reissued), and two even rarer CD's. These tracks are from the CD's. He was a salesman for IBM in Las Vegas, where he sold Selectric Typewriters and then word processors during the day and at night he world perform in the Las Vegas lounges. He was somewhat of an engineer and adapted a Hammond B3 organ to play a moog synth with some of the organ keys, (some still played the organ), and he adapted the organ's foot controlled bass levers to play two Moog synth bass pedals (a failed item Moog made for a few years.) Thinking he wasn't much of a live performer he had a wooden puppet made that he named T.J Hustler, and together with the puppet, he would engage in long philosophical soliloquies. If you meet Tim, he is not someone who stops talking. In fact he even created a little book called Universal Philosophy. He has a lot to say about everything. Currently he lives with his 103 year old mother in Oakland. There he infrequently plays shows on his Casio where he fashions himself a live Karaoke performer, who comes complete with 5 wireless mics and P.A. and a list of about a 100 songs he can play, (all of which sound remarkably similar.) His invented organ contraption and puppet are in storage in Las Vegas, and unfortunately he seems intensely uninterested in getting them out, as; The kids these days want to hear the sounds the Casio makes.
