About Stuart

Hi and welcome to my Organfax page. Thank you for taking the time to find out a bit more about me and for considering me for your concert or dance.

Obviously the first thing you may want to know is a bit of background -
My parents will tell you I could play Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star on my toy xylophone aged 3. After ‘wowing’ the family with my skills on the xylophone I eventually moved into the organ world starting out on a Thomas before graduating to Lowery then an Elka, all before my first paid booking aged 13.

In the 34 years, and several organs (Elka and Wersi) since, I have built up a career playing for dances across Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Essex (although I welcome the opportunity to break into new counties). I have also played concerts in Boston, Coningsby, Grantham, Sleaford, Swineshead, Walsoken and Woodhall.

For those of you interested in these sort of things, my current setup for dances and concerts is a
Korg Pa3x-pro keyboard and a
Yamaha Stagepas 600 PA system.

Here's some more information which may be of interest

Stuart Burr for Concerts
Having recently returned to the concert circuit I have put together a brand new programme, with new arrangements, independent of my dances, so your audience won’t end listening to a concert of dance music (unless that’s what you particularly want!)
The concert is played completely live with no programming, pre-recording or multi-tracking and includes music for all tastes from Bagpipes to Bond, War of the Worlds to The Wurzels, Strauss to sing-a-longs, a megamedley of classic television themes and much, much more. All presented with good humour and a smidgen of chat.

Stuart Burr for Dances
My dance repertoire includes getting on for 1500 of my own musical arrangements, some of which you may not have danced to before. As with my concerts there is something for everyone - dance standards, big band, trad jazz, film soundtracks, musicals, TV themes, country, classical, pop, rock, disco and easy listening. All music is arranged and played live to approved tempos and appropriate lengths for Ballroom, Latin and Sequence Dances.

If you want to have a themed dance - no problem - I have music arranged for the following themes -
War years
50s and 60s
UK chart hits (1950s to present)
Film Music
Musicals
and of course Christmas.

Having a party? Invite me to play for your birthday dance, wedding or club/hall anniversary dance and my programme will include hit songs and movie music, along with reminiscences from the year. Also, where possible, this will include the number one song from the day.

Bucket List
Now I'm 'getting on a bit' I have compiled my first bucket list - can you help me tick any of them off?
1) To play for a dance holiday (Your dancers can experience my no repeat playlist)
2) To play a Christmas Concert (I can bring along my 'stage filling' inflatable decorations and Christmas light effects)
3) To play in Blackpool (for obvious reasons)
4) To play at one of the keyboard/music/dance festivals
5) To combine 1 and 3
                      or 3 and 4
   or better still 1, 3 and 4!!
6) The Beatles went across the Atlantic to break America, my sights are set on hitting Yorkshire and Derbyshire (and Lancashire - see number 3)

Thanks again for reading my page and your consideration.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Stuart
