Wayne De La Cruz started on drums at age 9, moving on to vibes in middle school and organ in high school. A Baldwin spinet organ, it didn’t have the sound Wayne had in mind, a sound he remembered from the time his father took him to hear Ray Charles in 1968, when Billy Preston was at the keys of a Hammond B-3. In 1973, Wayne began his professional career, playing his first paying gig on Hammond organ at the age of 16. The Baldwin had been traded in for a Hammond spinet by then, and Wayne’s first gigging organ was a Hammond Porta B. In 1975, he got the real deal, a 1961 Hammond B-3 which is the same organ he gigs with today, when cartage is sufficient to haul the beast to the job. He’ll leave the beast at home, but knows how to deliver the sound regardless.
