Welcome to the Sussex Keyboard & Organ Club website. Please feel free to add your questions or thoughts to the comment page.
Sussex Keyboard & Organ Club is the largest electronic organ club in the Brighton/Worthing area, and has been in existence for the last 42 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 17th May, 7.15pm at Lancing Parish Hall with Nicholas Martin.
Nicholas Martin first started playing the piano at age eight. Even at this tender age he knew music was to be the foremost interest in his life! His career in music began in 1981 when he became one of the youngest resident organists, at seventeen years old, to play the Wurlitzer at the famous Tower Ballroom in Blackpool.
During the 1982 Blackpool season he was overheard playing the Wurlitzer by Nigel Turner (a Northamptonshire entrepreneur). So, through Blackpool, the “seeds were sown” for his musical future, as in 1983 he became the resident Wurlitzer organist at “Turner’s Musical Merry-Go-Round” a new entertainments centre at Northampton. He remained there for the next twenty-one years playing on the former Paramount Newcastle Wurlitzer organ.
