Visiting us on 22 May 2017 Nicholas Martin B.E.M
Nick’s musical career started when he first studied the piano at nine years of age. He began to take a keen interest in the organ shortly afterwards.
During a family visit to Blackpool, in 1969 (at the age of five), he overheard the Wurlitzer organ being played in the famous Tower Ballroom by none other than “Mr Blackpool” – Reginald Dixon. Upon hearing the sound of this unique organ, Nick was totally smitten – in fact, he never quite got over it! Subsequently, after he started learning to play the organ, at age eleven, it became his driving ambition to perform at this famous venue.
