Named the "Rhapsody," you'll quickly understand the reference.

I looked at that site. So why is the US Government auctioning off all this stuff? Why do they own a blue piano?

The Feds auction off seized property as a result of tax issues or proceeds from illegal transactions. This would all be merchandise which was confiscated.
