Today, the vocalists from GFAME were on assignment at a music venue. I’ve been doing music with these ladies for eleven years. One of our favorite things to do is to wait until the “Exit Stage Left” happens. It’s a theater term used that alludes to an orderly departure of the guests and or audience. We wait until everyone leaves and then try to capture photos of the beautiful and rare instrument, the Hammond B3 Organ.
The Hammond Organ is an electric instrument invented by Laurens Hammond and manufactured in 1935. You can hear this instrument in many genres of music today on radio, television, movies, videos, live streaming..etc.
All of the musicians should be together so that they can read each others’ cues and provide professional delivery. Inside this pit was the Hammond B3 Organ, the Leslie speaker, several electronic keyboards, a set of drums that was strategically placed behind the infamous fiber glass wall, other equipment, headphones, modules and everything else that was just a musician’s dream space.
The Hammond Organs are rare and highly treasured. That is why we try to take every opportunity to document when we find one. Many thanks to one of our vocalists, the beautiful Dr. Latreace Flynt for capturing these amazing photos.

Take time to document special moments in your life with your friends, family, loved ones, co-workers and just life in general. Build memories and and embrace experiences in happiness. Until the next post, exit anything negative and enter into your positive space. The world really is a stage. Your Act and scene is up next! Go!
