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 24th February 2015 David Ingley brought along his portable Technics GA3 and his Yamaha PSR8000 to entertain us for the evening. It's difficult to think of David as having been a professional musician for 29 years when he looks so youthful but he obviously knows his stuff and is a popular face on the electronic organ circuit.
David's programme was varied as usual, but worthy of note was a rendition of Laura, incorporating the lovely organ flutes and very jazzy Stephane Grappelli violin versions of S'Wonderful and Avalon, getting all our feet tapping. There were a couple of 50s and 60s medleys, an Abba medley, on orchestral style Merry Widow Waltz, ballads, rumbas, marches, a seasonal Pop Looks Bach (David had been having problems with snow where he'd previously been playing), WW1 songs, finishing with an encore of South Rampart Street Parade.
Tuesday 24th March - Andrew Varley Andrew makes a very welcome return to our club and we look forward to the programme he has to offer.
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!
