Why don't you use one of the famous and very quiet generators like this:

You have nothing to change at the band organ; you can play as usual
by the mains power or, with shifting the attached motor plug, play
by generator power.

In the Netherlands you can see many fair organs with an integrated
gasoline generator.  The smallest Honda model has enough power to drive
fair and band organs of a normal size.
