The Howard Morrison Quartet Take Two
The Howard Morrison Quartet Take Two led by Howard Morrison Jnr take to the road in February with a two hour show to celebrate and recreate the magic of the New Zealand entertainment phenomenon that was the original Howard Morrison Quartet with superb vocals, entertainment, and first hand family stories.
The Howard Morrison Quartet is considered this country’s’ most successful show band who helped to create the New Zealand entertainment industry. Merging family-friendly music with unique New Zealand humour, they toured constantly during the 50’s and 60’s but reformed regularly throughout the subsequent decades to remain hugely popular. Its charismatic lead singer, the iconic Sir Howard Morrison also enjoyed a stellar solo career over many decades plus the love and respect of his country for the huge amount he gave back to the community.
Howard Morrison Jnr and his new Quartet, also featuring Russell Harrison, Chris Powley and Jack Grace (instead of Andre King who recently suffered a serious injury), will faithfully recreate a trip down memory lane for the followers of the original showband plus add new songs and magic of their own. Thanks to Covid these busy performers have been able to take time out from their international commitment to organise this long-awaited national tour in honour of Howie’s Dad and his much loved quartet. Even those not old enough to remember the original icons will be impressed by this super-group of award-winning New Zealand talent. Suitable for all ages.
