Tommy Netzband

As founder of the Haunted Haight Ghost Walking Tour and a long time local resident, Netzband is the world's leading authority on Haight-Ashbury hauntings and is often called in to investigate local spirit activity.

Tommy Netzband is the founder of the San Francisco Ghost Society and has been studying the paranormal for over 12 years. He is the owner and creator of the Haunted Haight Walking Tour, winner of the San Francisco Bay Guardian's coveted "Best of the Bay" award in 2005. Often called a "ghost historian", Tommy's encyclopedic knowledge has brought him into the spotlight in many articles, most recently in "Ghost Magazine", and at the World Horror Convention's 2006 "Ghost Discussion Panel" where he met his long time mentor, parapsychologist Lloyd Auerbach. Haunted Haight Walking tours has been voted to the "Top Ten Most Haunted Walking Tour" list for the past 4 years by Hauntd America Tours many readers.

Tommy Netzband, creator of the Haunted Haight Walking Tour, a supernatural exploration of the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood. The excursion guides its curious explorers to some of the district’s most mysterious destinations. Many people associate the Haight solely with the 1960s, but your tour covers much more than just that.

Netzband a resident of the Haight for 10 years, has worked closely with the San Francisco Public Library’s History Center and did endless hours of research on the area’s past. The San Francisco Ghost Society founder Tommy Netzband also leads tours of his Haight Ashbury neighborhood, focusing on paranormal cases he and his group have worked on.

The San Francisco Ghost Society is the city's only resident organization devoted to the research and investigation of its ghosts and paranormal occurrences

Often Netzband openly he often thanks the many residents who courageously came forward to discuss their “haunted” residences. Many people associate the Haight solely with the 1960s. The Haunted Haight Walking Tour runs Fridays through Mondays year-round. Tickets are $20 and must be booked in advance. Call (800) 838-3006 or visit www.HauntedHaight.com.

Netzband says "ghost" because it's a widely understood term. "Most people don't understand the science behind ghosts, or the parapsychology behind ghost hunting," he explained. "To say a 'psychokenises entity of energy' is not as exciting as saying 'ghosts'."

Yet he remains open to the idea that ghosts are dead people's spirits or shadows. "Certainly you have spirits," he said, "but they're not ghosts that necessarily linger. If your grandmother dies, and that night you see her in your sleep, that's a dead spirit. It's called a visitation in parapsychology, when someone crosses over to say good- bye. Sometimes in a dream state, but sometimes not in a dream state. It happened to my brother-in-law with his own grandfather. That, I can believe, was a dead spirit.

"But ghosts that linger and haunt for centuries, there I lean toward 'no'. There it's a residual energy that's trapped. It's called place memory." When he Netzband moved to the Haight area, he posted fliers that read “Got Ghosts?” and the phonecalls started pouring in – 90 percent were untrue he states. But, the actual 10% were very much the real deal!

Along the way on his tour you will visit a dozen spots in the Haight with spooky and/or historical importance including many private homes with documented hauntings as well as the homes of Robert Cranston (who designed many of the best Victorian homes in the area), Jim Jones, and Charles Manson. You'll also visit a store cursed by its former witch tenant where all future businesses are doomed to fail and the location where local punk rock legend Buck Naked (Phillip Bury) was murdered in 1992 by pigeon obsessed maniac Michael Kagan. Tommy also tells some of the numerous haunting tales from Golden Gate Park including those of a phantom policeman and the Lady of Stow Lake. Read the full story here: http://www.hauntedamericatours.com/ghoststories/hauntedhaight/

Lady of Stow Lake a tale worth hearing and a place worth the visit!

Also during his Haunted Haight ghost tour, Netzband tells the tale of Golden Gate Park's haunted panhandle...

Years ago an obsessed loon known to locals as 'the Pigeon Man' would feed the panhandle's pigeons and warn everyone, "If you disturb my pigeons, I will kill you."

In 1992 a young musician named Buck Naked entered the park late at night with his unleashed dog. The dog disturbed the pigeons and the Pigeon Man shot and killed Buck Naked.

Police later found $10,000 worth of birdseed in a storage box in the Pigeon's Man's home.

The Pigeon Man was convicted. The dog lived and was adopted by a friend of Buck Naked.

Yet to this day, said Netzband, "People talk about being in this park at night, and hearing somebody call to their dog, 'Here boy." Then they'll look around, and there'll be nobody in this park. It's as if Buck Naked or his residual energy is looking for his dog."

Even more ominously, "We have a really strange phenomenon in this park. Look around. There are no pigeons in this park. There are pigeons all over this city, but they do not enter this park. They used to. There are other birds in this park, and people feed them. And you will see pigeons across the street. But there are never, ever any pigeons in this park.

"I've told people on this tour, and the locals, I say, 'Call me if you ever find a pigeon.' I've never had a call in two years. Is it a ghost that keeps the pigeons out of this park? I don't know. I leave it up to the people to decide that."

The SFGS was formed in 2005 by Tommy Netzband, the creator and owner of The Haunted Haight Walking Tour.

A longtime resident and avid historian of the city, Tommy has united a talented and diverse group of individuals to form the heart of the organization.

Their philosophical approach is one of flexible skepticism; we aim to produce documented, reproducible explanations for reported activity at the end of any investigation.

To that end, they engage a variety of tools in our work, ranging from hi-tech devices to psychic impressions, and always include a healthy dose of good, old-fashioned information research and common sense.

San Francisco Ghost Society's investigations can be as fun or as serious as their clients like; however they will always be conducted in a professional, confidential manner.

The investigation team members follow strict policies of conduct and organization, and work closely with our clients to ensure a successful and agreeable experience for all.

An investigation team will normally range from four to eight, depending on the size of the location, and the amount of reported paranormal activity hotspots.

Typically, one of our Team Leaders will be the primary contact throughout the course of the investigation, and will liaise with the other team members to communicate clients' concerns and preferences.

All findings will be formally presented after careful review of the collected evidence, and are held in the strictest confidence.
