“I saw the light, and standing within the light is the hero of this story Movin Melvin. He performs with the charisma that politicians, and religious leaders dream to have. Any attempt to describe Movin Melvin is destined for failure, the quirkiness of his act is something that must be experienced to understand why he was voted the most popular. Melvin’s voice enchants and adds new dimensions to music. His tapping is cool, you have to see it-and you will not regret it.”

“For nearly two hours Melvin Brown entertains his audience in a manner and style not seen here since the death of variety. He’s a professional song and dance man, his four note laugh punctuates his pauses, his jokes and his stories with infectious good humor. The show A MAN, A MAGIC A MUSIC, it’s a must.”

“Movin Melvin weaves magic with his music, Melvin tells the story of his life, using music from the fifties to the nineties, like James Brown, Ray Charles, the Righteous Brothers, and Temptations. He gives the audience the flavour of a black preacher, cries of hallelujah, and amen, finishing with a bunch of reserved kiwi’s movin and groovin to When The Saints Go Marching In.”

“American Entertainer has the greatest laugh, his chuckle rings out over the sound of his tap dancing feet and his rich singing voice. A guaranteed crowd pleaser, everyone in the audience came out beaming fit to burst.”

“It seems that Wellingtonians just can’t get enough of Movin’ Melvin Brown. Charm, enthusiasm, a good voice, a talent for storytelling, tap shoes that almost generate sparks. People say its a party, this guy is having fun, lets join the party. Hey Melvin I really enjoyed your show last night.”
