Vintage Keys Tour with Eric Frampton


This last year, I had the good fortune to catch up with my friend and fellow keyboardist, Eric Frampton, for a series of in-depth conversations about his impressive array of vintage synthesizers and keyboard instruments! Eric, who’s worked with Paul Simon, the B-52’s, Yanni, and Mother’s Finest, gives some great information and demonstrations on his Rhodes Suitcase Mark II, an Oberheim 4-Voice, a MemoryMoog, a Prophet 10, and a Rhodes Chroma.

In a forth-coming series (to be posted very soon), Eric digs even deeper into the Rhodes Chroma, which (at the time of this filming) was being restored and hence was not playable.

In the meantime, be sure to catch Eric in and around the Atlanta area playing with Yacht Rock Schooner and Electric Avenue! You won’t be disappointed!
