Barry Morgan’s World of Organ’s Home Organ Party Experience
He puts the Boss in Bossa Nova, the Yes in Polyester, he’s the patron saint of the safari suit: he’s Barry Morgan, and is the celebrity organ salesman who is wooing audiences with the golden syrup sounds of his vintage 1980s, Hammond Aurora Classic. Barry Morgan is packing up his Toyota Crown, strapping the Hammond Organ to the roof and hitting the road to fulfil his personal mission to not only share the ‘Joy Of The Organ’ but to educate.
Barry will entertain, amaze and thrill audiences as he demonstrates all there is to know about hosting your very own organ party - in the privacy and comfort of your lounge room!
Barry Morgan was plucked from obscurity to perform on ABC’s Spicks and Specks where he became an instant audience favourite. He was voted the third best Spicks and Specks moment in 2011 and trended #2 on Twitter after his Spicks and Specks Finale appearance. Barry has also graced our screens on Gordon Street Tonight, The Marngrook Footy Show and on ABC’s New Years Eve Pub Quiz.
Barry has sold out live shows at Melbourne Comedy Festival, Sydney Comedy Festival, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth Fringe, the famous Spiegeltent; and performed to adoring young crowds at Homebake and Falls Festival. In 2012, Barry travelled overseas to demonstrate his organ at NZ Comedy Festival and Edinburgh Fringe.
A career highlight to date was touring with international superstar Gotye, and Barry also showed through the release of his own album “The Touch of You” (2012) that he is not just one of Australia’s most entertaining performers, but one of its most accomplished musicians.
Barry will be demonstrating his famous One Finger Method where you can experience the safest way to get the most out of an organ with just one finger! Barry always likes to dress to impress so come along music lovers, don your best safari suit or evening gown, bring your friends and get down with Barry Morgan and his ultimate Home Organ Party Experience!
