Great American Street Organ offers a variety of different shows catered to the client, from straightforward organ playing to organ playing mixed with a Powerpoint presentation on the history of the street organ and calliope (ideal for schools and libraries). With three organs on-hand (a 31 note, a 21 note, and a  20 note skeleton organ, which is a paper roll organ that allows the viewer to see the inner workings of the organ itself), here are a few of the types of presentations Great American Street Organ provides (a partial list of tunes can be found at the bottom of the page):
Organ Grinding Shows

The sweetest music in the world provides a pleasant background to any event. Available for parties, anniversaries, street fairs and more. Organ grinding shows can last for the duration of your event to half-hour and hour shows.

The Great American Street Organ & Calliope Show:
Part II


While The Great American Street Organ & Calliope Show offers a blend of music and history utilizing a single organ, Part II allows for the inclusion of both a 31 note organ as well as a 21 note or 20 note organ. This provides listeners with more variety in the music as well as a chance to see and hear the differences 10 extra notes make when it comes to playing a piece of music.

The Great American Street Organ & Calliope Show

With a single organ of the client's choice a full show and history lesson is provided. Selection of music are interspersed with the rich history of both the street organ and the calliope. These presentations can include a Powerpoint presentation if desired, though it can be modified to an outdoor venue as well.

The Great American Street Organ Holiday Show

Let Great American Street Organ be the soundtrack to your holiday party with a selection of holiday-specific tunes and sing-along classics!
