Taylor Trimby grew up in Joliet and in 1966 he attended a concert by Kay McAbee at the Rialto Theatre, playing the 4/21 Barton Grand. He was instantly hooked. Since then, Kay’s styling has had a big influence on his own. He began studying organ with Rosemary Zolecki at age 13 and at 15 became the staff organist at the Rialto, a position he held for many years. He was a member of the JATOE work crew for 15+ years and is currently on the CATOE work crew and a member of the CATOE and ATOS board of directors.
He installed a 2/7 Marr & Colton Theatre Organ that came from the Dexter Theatre in Detroit in his basement and now has 3 manual Marr & Colton console from the State Theatre in Toledo Ohio which is setup as a virtual theatre organ. The installation was featured a few years ago in Theatre Organ magazine.
He has one son who is a professor, teaching biology and bio-engineering at the University of Delaware. His sister is a classical organist and plays at Plymouth Congregational Church in Plainfield Illinois. When not working, riding roller coasters, golfing or spending time in the theatre organ world, Taylor helps with Special Olympics, Illinois and Dalmatian Rescue of Illinois.
