  1. I'm the one who showed up at your gig in Jackson MS and yelled out HARMONY CENTRAL.
  2. I think you would be very happy with the keybed. I love it, it's fast and responsive. I'm primarily a piano player but it also works better than any other hammer action I've used for playing organ.
  3. Really liking the CP73. For the samples but especially for the finger to sound connection, the Nord Electro 5 I used to gig with left me cold in that regard. The keyboard action is just about perfect. I can play organ on it much better than I can play piano on the Nord action- not that the CP73 organs make me want to do that, but I can park my HX3 organ module on the top right. Really like the Wurli EP's, Rhodes are great too. The acoustic pianos make me wish for the 88, but the form factor and somewhat more EP- like action of the 73 will come in handy.
  4. Because 73 keys fits better on crowded lounge stages.
  5. Did you play an 88 or 73? Mine is taking forever to get here, my order got overlooked for a few days. But when I contacted the seller he made it up to me by swapping out the B stock I ordered for a brand new unit with the longer warranty, IMO that was decent of him.
  6. I play piano at restaurants 2-3 nights a week, usually it's as if someone puts up a "Do NOT make eye contact with the piano player" sign outside but every now and then someone gets emotional. A few months ago a well- dressed lady started bawling after she asked me to play "The Way We Were". I was a little embarrassed and her husband seemed to be, also. Guess it goes with the territory.
  7. Hi Outkaster, I ordered a 73 (B stock) a couple of days ago. Hoping it will be a good solution for a compact stage piano. I was intrigued by the Wurlitzer and the upright piano samples, also like how there is some room on top to put my organ module. Fingers crossed.
  8. I thoroughly enjoyed. Mostly for the performance clips, and how it showed Freddie's love of cats lol. I wish it had shown more of Freddie's formative years with his formal music training, and the drama for the final Live Aid concert scene was overdone IMO so far as showing uncertainty about how Freddie was going to do, I can't see any hint of shakiness in the actual footage. But of course, it's a movie.
  9. RE John Deacon's love of R&B, I remember reading that he was at a show where a top level funk band was playing, was taken by the bass line on one of the songs and told the player "I like that! I'm going to steal it"..which he did for AOBTD. Don't remember which group or song he lifted it from, though.
