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).
October 28th Brett Wales Having played for our club on several occasions we were looking forward to Brett's latest visit and he didn't disappoint us in any way. Sitting at his white Wersi Louvre he cut a dashing figure as he confidently put it through it's paces.
From the big sounds of 'The Blue Danube', 'The Skaters' Waltz' and 'The William Tell Overture' to ballads like 'The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore', 'A Love So Beautiful' and 'The Wonder of You' and Rock 'n' Roll and Dixie toe-tappers, the arrangements were first-class and very authentic with a modern hint about them at times.
An inspiring evening for the players (and indeed non-players!) amongst us in our audience and one which was over all too quickly.
Tuesday 25th November - DirkJan Ranzijn Dirk is a very familiar face on the UK organ circuit and at festivals and we look forward to welcoming him back to play for our club.
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!
