Movin' Melvin Brown: Chuck Berry Lives! with The Rock’n’Roll Showband
Channeling the late, great Chuck Berry, Melvin has created a show that truly moves, even by his own high-octane standards.
The result is an amazing mix of classic songs - Sweet Little Sixteen, Memphis, C'est la Vie, Johnny B Goode and more - mixed with dance routines of the kind that have won Brown a faithful following worldwide.
Melvin says: “Chuck Berry changed music for ever. I grew up with his sounds all around me, he made a huge difference to my life and millions of others. If anyone deserves the title of King of Rock ’n’ Roll it’s him. This is a chance to have fun celebrating his music.”
An Edinburgh Fringe favourite in 2017, Brown is a flamboyant wizard of song and tap. A man and a show not to miss in Adelaide. NB: Bring your dancing shoes!

The GC places strong emphasis on high production values and comfort for artists and audiences.
The main performance space, the 450-seat Showroom One, is one of Adelaide's best multi-purpose rooms: flat floor, fully air-conditioned auditorium with side-access proscenium arch stage, high ceiling, black-out curtains, lift and stair access, and excellent acoustics with no sound transfer. It is equipped with some of the very best sound and lighting equipment available, the equal of anything around the Fringe.
Other rooms – from 60 through to 150 seats – provide remarkable performance spaces with quirky ambience, particularly suited to stand-up, small bands and two/three-handed theatre, great for audience interaction.
