Greeting fairgoers at the entrance is this concert band organ owned by
Larry Kerns. It is a happy sound, immediately establishing
a pleasant, nostalgic mood to begin one's visit.
As I was looking for more information about
these machines, I found that are enthusiasts who attend
rallies to hear them, one of which is in Gallipolis, Ohio
I found the machine intriguing to watch, it's band master keeping time,
cherubs plucking little harps, attractive goddesses flanking the
bandmaster each playing a horn and or a bell.
The music also was the last thing I heard as I left
the grounds, leaving me with a pleasant sound as I
recalled my day and looked forward
to my next visit.
While there are several videos of this organ
on YouTube, I chose this one because the sound
seems so much better than on the others.
