A night out ...
just got back from Freo with Nick, was kinda a last min plan to head out to this mini concert @ the Flybynights Musicians Club where he had the tics.
Movin' Melvin Brown
Premiered at the Adelaide Festival, to sold out houses, the show has been toured to the UK (nominated “Star of the Festival” and awarded as “Best International Act” in Brighton), to Canada and France, where it received rave reviews and it was sold out for the entire Avignon International Festival.
With ME, RAY CHARLES AND SAMMY DAVIS JR. Melvin creates a dialogue on stage with the two 'Greats', and combines their great singing (Ray), their astonishing dance (Sammy Davis Jr.), their entertainment ability and comedy sketches, with his true charismatic and explosive personality, his original songs and his original dancing, tap dancing, mime and robotics.
Melvin’s sound has been compared to such great entertainers as Otis Redding, Ray Charles, James Brown, Sam Cooke, Louis Armstrong, and many of the gospel greats. His shows have inspired and entertained audiences worldwide through song, dance, tap, storytelling and humor. His dancing talents include Tap Dancing, Juke Dancing, Clogging, Jazz, Swing, Contemporary, Mime and Robotics. Audiences enjoy watching his dance moves that reflect styles from the 1940s into the new millennium!
overall i love the performance, it was realli entertaining, especially when he mimick Micheal Jackson in Riverdance. that was hilarious. it was a 2hrs long concert, and man, he has the stamina. haha.
thanks Nick, it help me unwind from work. i need that.
