Doug Parkinson presents The SongBook of Soul

FRI 16th OCT



Motown, Atlantic, Stax and the blue eyed soul songs of Van Morrison.

Australian music icon Doug Parkinson presents a musical salute to the legendary stars of American soul music and the blue eyed soul singer Van Morrison.

Doug Parkinson has been called “Australia's Greatest Singer" (Herald Sun), “Australia's Greatest Soul Singer" and “A Rolled Gold Superstar (The Australian)."

3 times Mo Award winner and 3 times Ace Award winner, Doug Parkinson at his very essence is Australia’s ‘Soulman’. His musical career began with hits Dear Prudence and I'll Be Around, both of which are included in this evening of hit songs.

Van Morrison describes himself as a Blue Eyed Soul Singer from Belfast and added his soulful touch to the songs of other great artists as well as his own chart topping hits.

Doug Parkinson has taken these mighty Van Morrison songs and with the musical talents of his great band, has transformed them into masterful soul arrangements.

This component of the show has been playing to sell-out audiences across the country.

From Jazz to R&B to Motown and beyond, this dynamic production celebrates the lives and times of legendary artists who shook the world of music.

Sam Cooke, Wilson Picket, Sam & Dave, The Four Tops, Ray Charles and Martha & The Vandellas.

The musical timeline spans six decades of groundbreaking HITS. It embraces many genres including the early years of Jazz, the rhythm of Rock & Roll, the magical music of Motown, the sweet sounds of 60’s Soul through to the electric excitement of R&B and Dance.

The unforgettable voice of Doug Parkinson re-creates these elements to produce a masterful canvas of what has become popular music as we know it today.

Supported by some of Australia’s leading musicians and vocalists, this spectacular production moves along at a cracking pace and is filled with all the humour, pathos and glitz that made these stars and their music unforgettable.
