Barry Morgan, Adelaide's own celebrity organ salesman returns to the Capri Theatre for one special performance of organ magic on the Capri's Wurlitzer organ and Hammond Aurora Classic.

Barry said, "I have been very fortunate to play at the Capri before on their lovely Wurlitzer Organ. It is very exciting as it rises up out of the stage. I will be bringing my Hammond Aurora Classic. We will have a lot of fun with a great big sound with all the sing-a-long with antics and some great organ music. Who knows, we might even be able to get a bit of a jam going between the Wurlitzer and the Hammond organ."

"My evening is all about the organ and the home organ party experience, which is very similar to a Tupperware Party, with a lot less plastic and lot more organ!" Barry said with a chuckle.

Barry's shows create a lot of audience interaction. As he gets to know them, he is quite often invited to someone's home for an organ party in the comfort of their own lounge room, "where we have a lot of fun, some sing-a-long and great organ music."

Barry's show even has a rock bracket because he has hard rock on the Hammond organ and he is not afraid to use it. The program also includes a segment where the audience has to guess the song. He also demonstrates his one finger method, where you get the most out of the Hammond organ in the privacy and comfort of your own home.

The full-length version of Barry Morgan, from the World of Organs, medley of classics from the popular TV program Spicks and Specks.

"There will be the lovely big sounds of the Hammond and I'll be there in my Safari Suit. I am the Patron saint of the safari suit, you know. I will have my bottle of Campari and Bex powders and we'll have ourselves a swinging good time."

Barry encourages his audience to get into the fun and dress up in a safari suit or in evening wear with pineapple printed frocks.
I do love pineapple printed frocks with Presley pink pineapple rings."

"I have heard reports," he said, "where my concerts have been known to start a rush on opportunity shops around Adelaide."
