Seabreeze Carousel Band Organ Façade Installed
By Matthew Caulfield

On the last weekend of Seabreeze Park's 2013 operating season, we
opened with our Verbeeck replica Wurlitzer 165 band organ in full
dress.  The completed, painted façade was installed by our mechanical
and maintenance crew in about three days of fitting the façade to the
organ case, building new drum platforms and adjusting their height to
fit the openings on the façade wings, reinstalling the triangle and
castanets actions, and giving the organ a test run.

Here are some pictures showing the progress and the finished result.
