As a player of some thirty three years on organ, after playing piano for many years, Robert is well known amongst the dancing fraternity nationwide and has a great deal of experience playing both pipe and electronic organs in concert and cabaret support
He has played in Germany on both piano and organ, at the Fort Regent Complex in St. Helier, Jersey, playing both organ and drums, on radio, and has completed several summer seasons on the East Coast and Blackpool, being the resident band leader and musical director from 1992 until 1995 at Pontins, Blackpool. He has also appeared at most of the major Organ Festivals including Caister, Blackpool, Hemsby, Isle of Wight and Barton Hall, and at numerous Organ Societies all over the country.
Robert is now hoping to perform more concerts for Organ Societies and plays the Bohm Diamant 280CT concert organ. He has owned the organ for the past twenty two years updating it as and when required to bring it up to the present model, doing all the work himself, building and installing all the circuit boards himself. As a hobby project he has also built a Bohm 300 organ. He joined the Bohm Team in 1989 demonstrating the MD900 organ, the forerunner of the 280, and works with Brian Price of Bohm Organ Studios in Nottingham building the organs. He is also involved to a small degree in the development of the organs and has visited Bohm in Germany on several occasions.
At home, Robert has now added the Opera Maxima system to his Silverbird Organ.
