Unidentified Liberationist

Who is rocking this Moog Liberation?

Someone recently donated this image, found at the botttom of a box of Moog memorobilia,  to us. Can you help us identify this rocker chick?

Here’s what we know: The setting looks like a convention, likely a NAMM show. The keytar is, of course, the first commerically produced portable synthezsizer, the polyphonic Moog Liberation. The year is likely early ’80s, as the Liberation was released by Moog Music, Inc. (Buffalo) in 1980. We also know it’s the eighties by the big hair, big glasses and rockin’ leather pants.

Let us know if you recognize the person, place or year by commenting below.

    ‎- I remember this – Namm in Anaheim, the first year the Liberation was released. – I was there working for MOOG. There is a picture of me playing it as well in Downbeat Magazine during the show. BTW – That prototype was noticeably heavier than the ones that were finally produced.
