Whoa! A real Hammond organ!

So today I was at a wedding rehearsal and got to play a whiz-bang old-fashioned Hammond organ in St.James’ church in Coorparoo QLD. Father Brian said the collectors come by and ask when is he going to sell it!

I know nothing about organs. This one has two switches – you flip one and hold it for ten seconds while something inside whirrs, then you flip the other switch like an ignition and the lights come on!

Oh I wish the bride and broom were getting married to “Whiter Shade of Pale”. Never mind, bring on the wedding this weekend.  Woo-hoo!
