Our first public show for 2014 is sure to get your toes a-tapping!

Great Britain’s Chris Powell returns to the Hollywood for another fun afternoon of lively music, performed in the style made popular by Blackpool’s Reginald Dixon, perhaps Britain’s most famous theatre organist, who played the Blackpool Tower Ballroom Wurlitzer for dancing, for almost forty years. The “Blackpool Style” is firmly rooted in dance tempos, made more enjoyable by the energetic way it is played – particularly during the quickstep numbers, which feature Reginald Dixon’s legendary keyboard to keyboard water-falling!

Chris Powell is a great exponent of this style and a much-loved performer at the Hollywood Cinema. So hold on to your hats for a thrilling afternoon of music!

See "close up" on the giant screen, the organist making music on this unique pipe organ complete with its own percussion section of drums, cymbals, piano, harp, xylophone etc. All real "live" percussion instruments - truly a one-man unit orchestra.

Tickets on sale at the door on the day from 1.15pm - ages 10-18 free with a paying adult.

Presented with funding support from the ASB Community Trust.
