The original electronic organ club in Derby was the Hammond Organ Society, which was formed in 1967 by Vincent Doyle, Philip Foulds, Arnold Moreton and a group of organ enthusiasts who were interested in the new electronic organs produced by Hammond. There have been a number of changes in the ensuing years.
The Derby Organ & Keyboard Club, as it had become known, was formed by a small number of enthusiasts and nearly closed in 2000. A move to St Georges Social Centre brought new life to the club for many years, and we were well looked after by the staff at the Centre.
2019 sees another move for the club, to Littleover Social Club and we welcome anyone to visit us for an evening of superb music.
We hold monthly 'social' evenings, where members are encouraged to bring their own instruments and play informally. This is a good opportunity to get to know friends within the club.
Concert evenings are usually the 4th Monday of the month, with Social evenings on the 2nd Monday of the month.
Annual Subscription: £5.00 Commencing Jan. 1st.
Members admission to Concerts: £6.00, Visitors £7.50.
Admission to the Social evenings are £1.50 including refreshments. (Tea/coffee & biscuits)
