The Mighty Wurlitzer

Organ Stop’s Wurlitzer theatre organ was built for the Denver Theatre and was installed in 1927.  The organ was used regularly until the early 1930s.  With the advent of the talking picture and the 1930s depression, the organ was rarely heard.  It was silenced when a fire in the auditorium caused extensive damage to the organ’s relay.

Organist Charlie Balogh Has Passed Away

Organ Stop Pizza has truly lost a great talent and wonderful human being.


Beloved and longtime organist Charlie Balogh passed away from complications of a stroke this week. Organ Stop Pizza has truly lost a great talent and wonderful human being. Charlie leaves behind an incredible legacy, especially in the organ world.  No words can express our sadness at Charlie’s death or our gratitude for his commitment and love for Organ Stop Pizza throughout the years.

 

CHARLIE BALOGH is originally from Trenton, New Jersey. His Musical instruction began at age 11, continuing through classical organ instruction at Trenton State College. Charlie began his professional playing career at the Phoenix Organ Stop in 1973. In 1976, Charlie moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan, performing at The Roaring 20’s restaurant (subsequently changed to Good Time Charley’s). His 14 year involvement there as a performer, musical director and owner was highly acclaimed. In 1991, Charlie returned home to Arizona with his family. In addition to performing at Organ Stop, Charlie is also a leading national concert artist, has many pipe organ recordings to his credit and was named “Organist of the Year” by the American Theatre Organ Society (ATOS) in 2000.  Charlie is considered one of the pioneers in combining the sounds of the Theatre Organ with electronic music to create a musical experience never heard before.  His vision to combine the two, has brought a whole new generation to the world of Theatre Organ, his legacy will live on forever.

 

Charlie’s brother has set up a go fund me account to assist with some of his medical expenses.
