National Night Out 2012

National Night Out had live music from an orchestrion kindly provided by Russell Kriegel with a backdrop of a 49 Star Spangled Banner belonging to Walter Soellner, all framed beneath our beautiful new gazebo in O'Donnell's Gardens Park. You can hear the orchestrion in the video below. Here is some information provided by Russ about the orchestrion:

The instrument is a "Mascot" model orchestrion, made by Western Electric Co. in about 1925. Western Electric was an alternative brand name for instruments made by a larger coin piano/orchestrion company called Seeburg (who became famous later for their jukeboxes)

This instrument plays perforated rolls, each carrying 10 tunes. It contains a 65 note piano, with a mandolin rail that produces that "honky-tonk" effect, plus a rosewood xylophone. Small orchestrions like this one were popular in speakeasies during the prohibition era, and at a nickel a play, generated substantial income for bar owners.
