He's Australia's king of soul music and he will be performing in Forster this Saturday night.
The legendary Doug Parkinson will present Here Comes The Night - An Evening celebrating the Music of Van Morrison on February 15 at Club Forster.
The electric current will run high as Parkinson belts out a night of soul and rock classics accompanied by an eight-piece band.
There isn't a more qualified singer to showcase Van Morrison classics, Brown Eyed Girl, Moondance, Bright Side Of The Road and Have I Told You Lately than Doug Parkinson.
With soul, grit and power that is Doug Parkinson, this will be a show for all Van Morrison and Doug Parkinson fans alike.
Parkinson's unique gravelly soulful voice is often described as exciting and impassioned and also a master of interpreting others' songs.
He is not only an entertainer but an amazing vocalist. One example that brings the house down night after night is his hit version of the Beatles' song, Dear Prudence.
Parkinson is also a multi award winning artist of soul and rock and box office hit musicals.
The early 80s saw Parkinson star in the role of Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar.
The production toured Australia for 12 months to rave reviews before final performances in Singapore and Hong Kong.
During this extraordinary career he has appeared alongside international stars, The Who, The Small Faces, Paul Jones, The Four Tops, The Temptations, The Pointer Sisters, Thelma Huston, Bob Marley and The Wailers, and Randy Crawford just to mention a few.
His band includes some of Australia's most admired musicians, a crack rhythm section of the finest.
