TEDDE GIBSON AUGUST 25TH 2019 RECAP

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.

Donnie Rankin – March 2019 Recap

 

Dave Calendine blew into the Windy City in February to entertain his CTOS and CATOE friends at the Allen Organs Chicago Showroom. He opened with a video of himself playing the specially built Allen 4 manual stadium organ at Little Caesars Arena for a home game of the Detroit Red Wings against the Blackhawks. He then segued into a rousing “Rock Around the Clock” and “Pick Yourself Up” on the TO-5Q Allen. Thanks, Dave for a very insightful afternoon.
