“Pizza and organ music first came together in Mesa 40 years ago,” according to the East Valley Tribune.

“Cheryl Johnson remembers first going to Organ Stop Pizza when, as a young mother, she brought her family to Mesa from Minnesota to visit her then-recently retired parents.


“When my mom and dad lived in Mesa in a retirement community in the ‘70s, that’s how I got to Organ Stop Pizza. Mom and dad took us there. That’s how I attended the pizza and music. Mom and dad thought it was so much fun,” Johnson recalls.

Now a resident of Sun City, Johnson organizes trips for Recreation Centers of Sun City, Inc.

“It’s a very popular tour with our seniors, not only for loving pizza, but as well for their love for music,” she said.”
