About Norwich Electronic Organ and Keyboard Club

Hi and welcome to the Norwich Organists Club, or  actually our new name THE NORWICH ELECTRONIC ORGAN & KEYBOARD CLUB. As a club we have been around for over 30 years but like a lot of clubs have had a few hard times in the past few years. However in 2010 we moved from the Royal British Legion premises to a lovely new venue at Drayton Village Hall and our numbers have been steadily increasing ever since. The hall is situated next to the Drayton Red Lion Pub on the A1067 road out of Nowich, it's about 3 miles out from Asda.

We always meet on the last Tuesday of the month starting at 7.30pm and to encourage new members we only charge £6 on the door with no additional membership fee to pay. We are a friendly bunch and just want you to come and join us for a light hearted evening of excellent music and entertainment provided by one of the many leading professional organists this country has to offer, occasionally we have organists from further afield too!

As you will see from the list below we have some very good players lined up for you. So do come if you can, and if it's your first time please look me up (Martin, I'm the chairman) and lets have a mardle (sorry that's Norfolk for a chat).

 

Tuesday 28th April 2015  Steve Hubble has been in the music business for more than 30 years, starting his professional career as a concert organist and keyboard player and going on to run his own shop and music school. For the last few years he has returned to the organ circuit as well as playing for private and public functions. Our club members and visitors benefited greatly from this wealth of experience when Steve visited us, showing us how he combines his excellent playing and arranging skills with the realistic sounds and features of his Tyros set-up with 2 keyboards, foot pedals and speakers.

Steve played with much feeling and energy from the start - his opening medley of Barbara Streisand numbers, the haunting film themes of John Barry's Out of Africa and Dances with Wolves, authentic big band and orchestral arrangements, jazzy organ versions of Girl From Ipanema and Why Haven't I Heard From You, Karl Jenkins Palladio, Water Fountain, Sleepy Shores and Misty showing off the piano voices, bending the trumpet on Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White to name a few - the music kept coming and filled the hall with an impressive sound. 

An encore of Duelling Banjos finished off a very pleasant evening and gave us a jolly tune to hum on the way home.

Tuesday 26th May - Nicholas Martin   Nicholas is a very familiar face to many pipe and electronic organ enthusiasts. He has visited our club many times in the last 35 years, bringing along his Technics organ to give us a good evening of music.

Do come and join us - we are very friendly, our evenings are entertaining and varied, it's well worth £6.00 and you get tea or coffee with biscuits as well!
