Enjoy this final concert celebration of the American Theatre Organ Society’s National Convention featuring the nationally recognized organist Ken Double with Harry James Orchestra members Skip Stine and Cathy Chemi, as they recreate the sounds and mood of the Big Band Era.
Not only is Ken Double the President of the American Theatre Organ Society, but he is a gifted theatre organist, vocalist, and just a great all-around entertainer! For more than 30 years, Ken has been on radio and TV as a sportscaster, and since 1978, has been at the console of the great theatre pipe organs, indeed working hard to entertain his audiences.
During his concert career, Ken has performed all over the world, including stops in Seattle, Wilmington (DE), Tampa, Chicago, Los Angeles, the famous Casa Loma in Toronto, and three six-week tours throughout Australia. In addition to his hundreds of concerts, he has several CD’s to his credit, including Double Southern Comfort – A Musical Toast to the South, played on the Reddish Residence Walker RTO 335, Christmas at the Nethercutt Museum on the 4/76 Wurlitzer, and The Music of Casa Loma, the first-ever CD and first release in more than 30 years on the great Wurlitzer in the Great Hall of Toronto’s historic castle. Ken just released a very special CD, Teach Me Tonight, recorded on the EMCATOS 4/18 Mighty Wurlitzer at Babson College in Wellesley, MA – just in time for the 2011 ATOS Convention!
Husband-and-wife team Cathy Chemi and Skip Stine brought their 17 piece Big Band to the American Music Theatre (Lancaster) and the Hersheypark Amphitheater (Hershey) in a concert tribute to the Swing/Big Band Era…with a special segment dedicated to their former boss and friend, Harry James. They are frequent guests at concert venues on the east coast with special emphasis on their uniquely personal experiences of their association with the Harry James Orchestra.
