Allen Organs of Chicago proudly hosted a unique Theatre Organ performance by artist Tedde Gibson on Sunday, August 25. Tedde is one of the few musicians comfortable playing jazz, gospel and classical music and he fully utilized the magnificence of the Allen TO-5Q. What made the performance memorable was his use of theatre organ combined with The Hammond B-3 for an organ duet. Being a sought after silent film accompanist, he delighted the audience with a treat when he accompanied the Harold Lloyd film entitled “Hand to Mouth”.
Tedde has studied under some of the most prestigious names in music and has traveled and performed from the east to west coast. It was a pleasure to have the Vice Chairman of the Board of the American Theatre Organ Society with us here in Chicago.
