Freshly returned from a critically acclaimed world tour which took in such salubrious locations as Paris, Berlin and Marakesh, “Uptown” Brown has found himself bankrupt, stranded (and more than a little hungover) in a far flung colonial outpost (Australia).   Brown is a man who has worn many hats in his colourful life – inventor, musician, aviator and adventurer to name but a few.  However, without a doubt his crowning glory is the patented “Goodtimes Gyratorscope”, a musical machine which permits an athletic fellow to play multiple instruments at once.   Using leftover parts from a disused biplane (which he himself had crashed) Brown built a number of ill-fated (and occasionally lethal) prototypes before arriving at the current design.

Favouring a repertoire drawn largely from the 1920-50’s Uptown Brown is now available for both public and private bookings, christenings/funerals, ‘exotic’ dances, weddings (both regular and ‘shotgun’), medical procedures and any other occasion that may require the services of a singing gentleman-adventurer.

  1. Dear Mr Brown from Uptown,
    The images and Bio are great . It has only added more thought to my mind of creation.
    There’s the ‘What has not been said” mystery of you that intrigues me,and has me not wanting to know more but to hopefully have the chance to make you apart of an event that belongs partly to the persona, the character beneath the veil of what is named “Uptown” Brown!
    Thank-you so much for forwarding the info on to me.
    I so enjoyed it : )

    Regards Most kind
    Eleanor Marguerite .

    Uptown Brown is quite the ‘gentleman entertainer’ of olde,.
    With such appeal , he has you wondering ???
    Quite the mystery man.

    You were the highlight of Blues on Broadbeach. You were just amazing! Fantastic musician, great voice, unique performance and oh so handsome!… Are you spoken for???…. I think we could be really happy together.

  22. Hi there, saw you today outside of Hamer Hall in Melbourne & I swear it was so much fun watching. (Although I don’t condone swearing youngsters)
    Happy to throw a bit in your hat.

    I watched you last night at the night market and you were just amazing!! I had only wished you had a little tip jar to give you some coins!!
    Absolutely amazing!!!! Made me smile for the rest of the evening!

    Just saw you briefly at the Moomba Festival today. Made my day. Pure entertainment.

    Oh! on my way home I saw what I thought was my favorite car (Triumph Herald) driving out of a car park. As I stood there drooling, the car went by, i’m sure I saw Peugeot on the back of it?. Then my better half said Oh! look it’s Uptown Brown. Was it you? and was it a Peugeot?

    To Mr Brown from Mrs Jones
    We were wowed by your musical antics last year at the Blues on Broadbeach festival. Our 10yr old son was most impressed (as were we). When are you heading up to the sunny state again? Haven’t seen your name on the bill for this year’s BOB…

  27. Annie said

    Thanks for the reply. Let’s keep fingers crossed then! 😊

    Hi Uptown! What a charming and dapper performance. Alas I had to be on my way on Sunday morning. When can I see you next? Mystery Blonde who has you on my phone

    • Hey Lynne! Always around and about 🙂
      As far as street shows are concerned I am somewhat at the mercy of both the weather and where I can get a spot on the day (thus making it a little hard to be specific). Playing at Blues on Broadbeach next month if you find yourself on the Gold Coast!
