Scott Wexton, better known as The Voodoo Organist, brings vintage equipment and some solid songwriting to The Trunk Space August 29 in support of his new record, Darwin Dance Hall Days.
"I have a new rig for live shows and recording, which includes a 1949 Hammond CV organ, and vintage Moog Taurus bass pedals. The sound of the tube driven organ with the analog bass pedals is amazing. Deep, heavy, like a steamroller."
