On January 21st the Belper & District Keyboard Club welcome internationally renowned Wersi artiste Brett Wales from Nottingham.
On the 3rd Saturday of every month at 7:30 pm, the Congregational Church on Green Lane is transformed into a concert venue, with staging, lights and video projection.
Brett Wales is from Nottingham and has been playing keyboards, electronic organ, piano & guitar for over 30 years. Constantly touring & recording his own arrangements, he has played concerts in the USA, Germany, the Netherlands and all over the UK.
The recent live music presentation by Belper & District Keyboard Club featured local professional entertainer Tim Flint. Tim who was born in Belper, has provided music & laughter to audiences all over the country for over 30 years.
The Club was formed in 1987 by three people sharing a common interest in organ music. In the early days the Club held it’s meetings in various local public houses. The founder of the Club, a local businessman David Parkin, would take along his own Elka portable for members to play.
Since then the club has become more popular locally, and members using their own instruments began to give charity concerts, raising vast sums of money for local and national charities
Each month their artists bring their own individual style of live entertainment, delighting the audience with varied genres of music.
