STEVE Clarke is keeping his fingers crossed for better weather on his visit to the Rex cinema this weekend, the second trip he has made to play its theatre organ.
Steve, who is from Pontefract, made his Rex debut in February of last year.
But though he managed to get to the venue in Elland, many others weren’t able to make it because of snow.
Sunday’s concert should fair better with audiences hopefully having no more to deal with than an October shower – of rain.
Steve started playing the piano as a boy, never missing the chance to find his way to the family piano.
For his 12th birthday he was given a piano accordion and less than six months later an electronic organ Šarrived on the scene.
By the time he was 14, he was playing the organ at the local British Legion Club four nights a week. Even now he still finds time to play for cabaret and dances.
In recent decades he has worked as musical director for several artists and spent two years touring the UK with the We’ll Meet Again show.
Steve plays a wide range of music from swing, jazz and classics to Easy Listening.
A short film novelty will be included in the programme. The concert starts at 2.30pm and admission is £4.10.
