Organ Stop Pizza

Friday night found us visiting Organ Stop Pizza in Mesa, Arizona. The Mighty Wurlitzer(one of only a few remaining in the world) is operated seven days a week by skilled musicians and plays everything from Bach to the soundtrack from the movie Grease! These organs, complete with 6000 pipes, were originally created at the turn of the century to provide the soundtrack for silent movies when the cost of retaining an orchestra became too expensive. It made for a fun evening of pizza and sodas while we watched and listened to the musical light show!
