Commemorating the Live Music Era

November 2, 2013 No Comments

Dominic Cangelosi, owner of Moonlight Rollerway Skating Rink in Glendale, Calif.,  recently donated his vintage Hammond B3 organ to the National Museum of Roller Skating in Lincoln, Neb.

Museum Director James Vannurden explained, “Rinks have always had music.  This is Dominic’s personal organ that he would bring to wherever the National Indoor Championships were being held and play for the competition.  He did this from 1969-1985. He used a different organ after that and the Championships went to recorded music in 2003.”

The museum is housed in a building owned by U.S. Roller Sports, the governing body of all competitive roller skating.  It opened in 1982 and is the premier museum of all things roller skating including costumes, pictures, trophies and skates.  Vannurden is proud to point out that they have the first patented roller skate from 1819. -  S.M.
