Sussex Keyboard & Organ Club is the largest electronic organ club in the Brighton/Worthing area, and has been in existence for the last 43 years.
Do you like a good cross section of music, from big band to popular light classics, jazz to pop, 1930s to 80s?
Would you like to hear this music played by some of the best professional organ and keyboard musicians in the country?
Would you enjoy the company of others with similar music tastes in a friendly and easy-going atmosphere?
How about joining us for one of our monthly concerts, two hours of great music with an interval with tea and coffee?
Our next concert is on the 18th April, 7.15pm at Lancing Parish Hall with John Bowdler
Born and educated in Wigan, Lancashire, Blackpool Tower organist John Bowdler has been playing the organ since the age of 8.
He has been one of the team of resident organists at the famous Tower Ballroom since 1987, a position he took up at the age of 16 straight from school.
In addition to his commitments at The Tower, John also travels the length and breadth of the country every year covering thousands of miles undertaking concerts for organ societies and social groups as well as playing for dance events. He also makes several appearances at organ festivals across the UK.
John's unique playing style means he is always in demand to both ballroom dancers and die hard fans of organ music.
In February John was asked to play for BBC Breakfast as they reported live from the Tower on its annual spring clean. Despite having to be up at 4.00am to drive from his Wigan home ready to go live on air just after 6.00am, when the programme ended he still had to continue playing for dancing for the rest of the day eventually landing home at 7.00pm.
