The organist was playing some James Brown.

This reminds me of a scene from The Simpsons many, many years ago titled "Bart Sells His Soul". The organist from Rev. Lovejoy's church plays "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" for 17 minutes, but collapses at the end.

Key quote: "Wait a minute! This sounds like rock and/or roll".

They were just warming up the handbasket.

Please allow me to introduce myself I'm a man of wealth and taste....

"Overheated Pipe Organ" sounds like a euphemism... or a GNFARB...

Many organists smoke, so I'm not surprised.

My college handbell choir performed on the night before an organ dedication. An arsonist torched the church that night.

Police spokesman: There was a fire in the church.
Reporter: Any casualties?
PS: Yes, we have one confirmed dead.
