This rare Band Organ was manufactured by the Artizan Factories, Inc. of North Tonawonda, New York, c. 1925. It is an example of Style A (Military Band) with 46 keys. The band organ has been converted to utilize the Wurlitzer 125 Organ roll. Purchased in 1983 for $13,250 (funds provided by a grant from the Mott Foundation).
One of our members, John Hayek, is an avid collector of Band Organs and Carousel related items. John has been instrumental (no pun intended) in many of the acquistions made by the Friends group. This Band Organ from North Tonawonda, New York is on loan from John Hayek's collection.
