Hey, check out this cool video from the mid sixties of an unknown group playing a house party. This is a silent film, taken on 8mm film, but it is very cool to see the boys groovin’ and the girls dancing. I wish there was a better shot of the organ, but I am terribly happy to have found this piece of history!
A Blast from long long ago. My first band from the mid 60’s features Russ DeFilippis and John Zias on guitars,(Rickenbackers) Rich De Simone on bass.
Silent was taken from old 8mm film.
Jerry LaRosa on Farfisa organ and our dear wonderful friend the late Tony Corbiscello playing wipeout on his gold sparkle Ludwigs.
Also seen dancing my cousins Joyce Castle and Lois Schneider-Novak
Hey, you! Have you ever heard of a Farfisa VIP 61? Well, I never did, until today. It looks to be another one of the South American models that never made it up to the states. Looks to have some pretty cool features like 3 vibrato setting and percussion envelopes.
Check out this great video of the Farfisa Syntorchestra analog synthesizer from youtuber zihcster. Be sure to check out his channel for some more great videos. Now I have an un-working Syntorchestra, which is housed in a sheet metal type case. Take a look at this beauty in it’s nice wood cabinet. It must be some sort of deluxe version meant to sit on top of your console organ!
