He puts the Boss in Bossa Nova, hes the patron saint of the safari suit: hes Barry Morgan, and is the celebrity organ salesman (performed by musician/performer Stephen Teakle) who is wooing audiences with the golden syrup sounds of his vintage 1980s, Hammond Aurora Classic. Barrys World of Organs theatre show is journey of musical comedy that introduces the many features of his beloved Aurora. When not in his World of Organs Superstore in the Sunnyside Mall, in the beautiful city of Churches, Adelaide, you can find Barry touting the joy of the organ to audiences far and wide. Barrys enthusiastic manner, contagious smile and musical skill all help convey his deep love of organs. The rich and rollicking musical sounds of the Hammond are projected from a classic veneer speaker cabinet and the impressive array of the organs keys, buttons and lights are caught on Barrys cockpit cam and displayed on large screens either side of stage. With enough cheese to match his infectious smile, the organs various sounds and features are exploited by Barry to achieve velvet tones, luscious lounge, exotic tangos, and grooves as modern as tomorrow. Barrys hilarious performance creates an utterly charming visual and aural experience that cannot be resisted.
Plucked from obscurity to perform on ABC TVs Spicks and Specks, Barry Morgan became an instant audience favourite. Barry was invited back to perform on A Very Specky Christmas, and had the incredible honour of closing with a stellar cast from Dan Sultan to Hamish and Andy. Recently after appearing on the Spicks and Specks Finale, he trended number 2 on twitter in Australia and was voted number 3 as the best Spicks and Specks moment.
After sell-out national appearances across the country, 2011 in Perth, Melbourne and Adelaide, Barry Morgan performed his show at the Melbourne International Comedy festival. This was followed by 2 sell-out shows at The Famous Spiegeltent at the Arts Centre in Melbourne.
