The Kunkels organ was built in 1909 by the Marenghi company in Paris and has played in the ballroom "Keizershof" in Antwerp. Around 1930, Carl Frei in Breda was commissioned by the showman Kunkels in Roermond to completely renovate the organ and provide a new front in Art Deco style. This front is 9 meters long and nearly 6 meters high. when completed the organ played in the dance tent of the Kunkels family.
During the 2nd World War the organ sustained considerable damage and subsequently was kept in a leaky barn standing in a pasture near Roermond. The state of the organ came to the attention of a group of Haarlem organ enthusiasts and in 1958 took the initiative to restore the organ.
Since 1969, the organ is exhibited in our museum.
The Kunkels organ has 112 keys, 14 registers and 800 pipes, making it the largest concert organ in Europe.
In 2001, the organ was completely overhauled musically and in 2004, the Art Deco front was restored.
In 2007, the magnificent organ and its original music repertoire was designated by the Ministry of Education as a protected object within the meaning of Article 2 of the Law on Cultural Heritage Preservation.http://www.draaiorgelmuseum...

Is this the real life, is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide no escape from reality
Open your eyes look up to the skies and see
I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy
Because I'm easy come, easy go
A little high, little low
Anyway the wind blows
Doesn't really matter to me, to me
Mama, just killed a man
Put a gun against his head
Pulled my trigger, now he's dead
Mama, life had just begun
But now I've gone and thrown it all away
Mama, ooh, ooh
Didn't mean to make you cry
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters
Too late, my time has come
Sends shivers down my spine
Body's aching all the time
Goodbye everybody, I've got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth
Mama, ooh (anyway the wind blows) I don't want to die
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all
I see a little silhouette of a man
Scaramouch, scaramouch will you do the fandango
Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very frightening me
Gallileo, Gallileo, Gallileo, Gallileo,
Gallileo Figaro magnifico
But I'm just a poor boy and nobody loves me
He's just a poor boy from a poor family
Spare him his life from this monstrosity
Easy come easy go will you let me go
Bismillah, no we will not let you go, let him go
Bismillah, we will not let you go, let him go
Bismillah, we will not let you go, let me go
Will not let you go, let me go (never)
Never let you go, let me go
Never let me go, ooh
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
Oh mama mia, mama mia, mama mia let me go
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me
For me, for me
So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye
So you think you can love me and leave me to die
Oh baby, can't do this to me baby
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah nothing really matters
Anyone can see nothing really matters
Nothing really matters to me
Anyway the wind blows
