Bruce Mason Centre – The Howard Morrison Quartet Take Two

Date: February 27th, 2021 - February 27th, 2021

Join The Howard Morrison Quartet Take Two, featuring Howard Morrison Jnr, Russell Harrison, Chris Powley and Andre King as they 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 in a memorable two-hour show.

The Howard Morrison Quartet is considered this country’s most successful show band, and helped create the New Zealand entertainment industry. Merging family-friendly music with unique New Zealand humour, the Quartet toured constantly during the 1950s and ‘60s and reformed regularly throughout the subsequent decades, remaining 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.

Timed to mark the tenth anniversary of Sir Howard’s passing, the show will bring the old Quartet back to life through the talents of the next generation led by Howard Jnr, best known as a leading figure in kapa haka and his outdoor adventure television series, who also performed from a young age on the concert stage, including with the original Quartet.  All outstanding performers, Howard Morrison Jnr, Russell Harrison and Chris Powley have toured successfully as a trio for many years, and are joined by singing comedian, Andre King. The Howard Morrison Quartet Take Two will faithfully recreate a trip down memory lane for the followers of the original showband plus add some new songs and magic of their own.

Suitable for all ages.
