Cameron Lloyd – Online Event
February 14 @ 3:00 pmFree
Cameron started playing at the age of 11 when his parents bought him an electronic organ. He decided to teach himself to play, and after a visit to the Tower Ballroom Blackpool at the age of 12, he became hooked on the theatre organ. He was encouraged by the Wolverhampton City Organist, Steve Tovey and allowed to practise at the Civic Hall. During 2001 and 2002, he played the Compton regularly at The Kinema in the Woods, Lincolnshire, occasionally accompanying silent films. He also attended two COS workshops with David Lowe during which he gained valuable insight into technique. He is currently the resident organist playing the ‘Cannock Wurlitzer’ and the Grange in Hednesford on a 3/7 Compton.
Cameron played at the Civic Hall Wolverhampton as Assistant Organist for dancing, as well as other occasions such as the Ken Dodd show (three years) and with Todd Miller and the Joe Loss Orchestra (four years).
The majority of his time is spent traveling around the country playing for Ballroom and Sequence dancing using his trusty Yamaha EL 70. Cameron says that there is plenty of work for dance organists, and he now plays full time. For three years he has played for the British Association of Teachers of Dancing at their annual conference
