(TMOTTGoGo), editor and publisher of Take Me Out To The Go-Go Magazine, executive producer of TMOTTGoGo DVD Magazine, and webmaster of TMOTTGoGo.com. Take Me Out to the Go-Go Magazine gains attention from outside media outlets for its designation as ‘the official gateway to a Washington, DC music culture.’ Such magazines as Vibe have made Kevin Hammond and Take Me Out to the GoGo Magazine a significant source of information about the go-go music culture. His history as a musician includes performing and recording with the go-go bands Pure Elegance, Little Benny and the Masters, and Proper Utensils. He has also served as Chairperson of Historic in the Go-Go Coalition.
Born in Washington, DC, Kevin “Kato” Hammond grew up in Seat Pleasant, Maryland, and attended the Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington, DC and Bowie High School in Bowie, Maryland. As a child, he performed as a child in DC area organizations such as CUE (Childrens Urban Arts Ensemble), Bren-Carr Dancers and The T-N-T Poppers. Hammond is also an award-winning playwright. At the age of 17, he wrote a play entitled Buddies that listed in the finalist division of the Jospeh Papp New York Young Playwrights Festival. This play was performed Off-Broadway and starred Denzel Washington, Anna Maria Horsford, Michael Wright, Jeffrey Joseph, and Kim Weston-Moran, all of whom were lessor known actors at the time.
Hammond started the online magazine Take Me Out To The Go-Go in 1996. In addition to the magazine being a source of information on go-go shows, it serves as a community forum in which go-go fans routinely submit their own articles on issues unique to the genre.
