The problem with a lot of the "smaller" pizza/organ restaurants were just "that". The room was too small for the organ. Theatre pipe organs were originally built to fill sometimes 5,000 seat rooms. When put in a "smaller" room, they can be VERY loud, but it depends on the organist playing and how they register the organ. At Organ Piper Pizza, we have a really good-sized room, and the organ is a good sound. Int he smaller restaurants years ago, people used to complain about the volume of the organ, and then the organ battling with the audience volume. That’s one of the reasons why many of them never lasted.
I’m friends with one of the organists that used to play at the restaurant in Groton, Steve Schlesing. He now lives in Detroit. Place only lasted a few years and went bankrupt.
I remember this place in Groton, CT. When my daughter was little, we took her there once with one of her friends and her parents. I really can’t remember much about the pizza bcause the place was SO NOISY! Between the organ and hordes of screaming kids, it was painfully noisy. Never went back. Even my little girl wasn’t anxious to go back.
