The Band Organs at the Silver Beach Carousel

Much like the joyful soundtrack that played in amusement parks decades ago, our music comes straight from a band organ. All it takes is one machine with several components and you’ve got music to your ears. We have two organs with us, one of which is from the original Silver Beach Carousel. If you’ve visited us multiple times, odds are you have heard both organs play at some point since we switch depending on the day.

Fairground organs, or band organs, comprise some of the most colorful automatic musical instruments ever made. These instruments, loudly voiced so they could be heard above the surrounding din, provided music for carousels, carnivals, circuses, amusement parks, skating rinks and similar attractions. The North Tonawanda band organs were sold primarily for use in skating rinks, which accounted for about 90% of the company's band organ business.
