James Morrison Motown Experience

James Morrison Motown Experience at The Night at the Barracks

Journey into the Barracks at North Head Sanctuary and gaze up into the night sky from the Parade Ground whilst experiencing some of the world’s most extraordinary talent.

Join Us for an Evening of Soul and Jazz With Multi-instrumentalist James Morrison.

This feel-good evening will include four soulful voices, a pumping rhythm section and some smouldering horns lead by the incomparable James Morrison. Songs include hits from James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder and all the Motown greats

Performing for one show only, this intimate concert is an exceptional opportunity to experience one of Australia’s most talented and versatile jazz musicians. Renowned globally as one of the finest jazz players of his generation, James Morrison is not only a trumpet virtuoso, but the complete showman.

Now James presents authentic and definitive arrangements of classic Motown songs from the music that came to be known as The Sound of Young America. With a big 11-piece band, and taking time along the way to talk about the origins of Motown and the stories behind many well-known tracks, this is James Morrison bringing the sounds of the Motor City to downtown Manly.
