That Time Donny Osmond Played A Moog Modular, With Three Drummers & A Horn Section

Sunday Synth Jam: This vintage synth jam captures Donny Osmond, on the Donny and Marie show, playing a Moog modular, with three drummers and a horn section, on the jazz standard, Topsy.

In the 1/13/78 performance, Osmond plays (or mimes?) the Moog modular in the 70’s ‘switched-on’ style, accompanied by drummers Desi Arnaz Jr., Jay Osmond and Jimmy Osmond.

Does this qualify as even ‘a little bit rock and roll’? Leave a comment and let us know what you think!

  1. Seems like the lead sound is coming from the keyboard on the left and the one up front (during the solo). I don’t get it but that’s probably not the point.
