He rose to prominence on ABC television program Spicks and Specks, and vibrant Adelaide organ salesman Barry Morgan will be in Bathurst next week to take audiences on a wacky musical journey.
Armed with his trusty Hammond Aurora organ, charismatic safari suit and toothy grin, Morgan will perform a unique blend of music and comedy in an all-round entertainment showcase.
"There's going to be plenty of organ, and audiences can expect a bit of a sing-a-long and a good chuckle," he said.
"I intend to demonstrate how simple it is to play an organ with one finger, and everyone is invited to dress in their finest 70s and 80s costumes."
Morgan [the stage name of comedian Stephen Teakle] became an overnight sensation following an appearance on Spicks and Specks in 2010, where he performed unique organ arrangements of popular songs for contestants to guess.
In the years since, Morgan has appeared on various shows such as Adam Hills Tonight and The Marngrook Footy Show, as well as numerous sold out live shows across Australia.
"I've been on the road consistently for the last few years performing at shows and parties with my beautiful Hammond organ from 1979," he said.
"The organ has all these groovy, cheesy sounds and all jokes aside, it's a reverential machine with many beautiful tones."
Morgan performed as a support act for Australian music star Gotye on his 2012 tour and released his debut studio album [The Touch of You] the same year.
As owner of the 'Barry Morgan's World of Organs' store in Adelaide's Sunnyside Mall, Morgan feels blessed to blend his love of organs with a passion for sales.
"I find it hard to sell organs because I get so attached to them, they're like children to me," he said.
"The business is going backwards in that regard but these performances along the road are more than making up for it, and its a pleasure to play for so many appreciative audiences across regional Australia."
Barry Morgan will perform at The Victoria Bathurst on Friday, November 22. Tickets cost $30 and are available online via Sticky Tickets.
