Mark's Song Notes: "Probably most remembered for the theme song to the Harlem Globe Trotters, this song came to mind when I was looking for a catchy song for the band to play in three part harmony in my set at the world's largest dulcimer festival, The Original Dulcimer Player Club Festival, a.k.a., 'Evart' in July of 2004. Since Hammer On!'s band members are hundreds of miles apart, both Dan and I used some of our stage time to give a teaser of Hammer On! music. Immediately after our set, audience members rushed out of the grandstands to our booth and wanted to buy whatever CD Sweet Georgia Brown was on. At the time, we hadn't recorded it yet! By popular demand, it made it to the list of tunes to include on our debut CD."
