HERE IS NOTHING like a crisis to separate the wheat from the chaff in any profession, and for a performer it doesn’t come much worse than having to find a new venue two days before you open in a strange city, and then perform your opening night to an audience of four people.Under these trying circumstances, Movin’ Melvin Brown proved himself the very definition of professional by turning on an exuberate, uninhibited, entertaining performance.Brown is an accomplished song-and-dance man, and his show is essentially old-style vaudeville reworked to include his life story.A black American born in Ohio in 1945, Brown is a stylish tap-dancer, lap-dancer, soul singer and story teller. He tells of his early love of dancing, black music, living with racism, national service, marriage, dancing in a male revue and helping poor, and illustrates everything with songs from the era such asUnchained Melody, Twisting the Night Away, It’s Been a Long Time Coming, and Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher.

Then he throws in a bit of preachin’, some excellent loose-jointed tap, a James Brown impersonation, and a strip. Let me tell you, he’s fit.A Man, A Magic, A Musicis a rare treat; to have an all-round performer of Brown’s calibre, vintage, background, and experience up the road doing 90 minutes of material, is an opportunity that doesn’t come to Melbourne every day. Make the most of it.
