Godfrey’s Magic Piano

“Put the blues aside!!! Time for a piano transfusion!!!”

Who remember Sparky? Sparky and his magic piano? Pianos are a place for gathering, playing, laughing and exploring. Godfrey Johnson’s been pulling crowds with the piano for years now, ever since the young-boy Johnson couldn’t keep his hands to himself (whenever there’s a piano around that is)!

So, this year Godfrey is pulling out all the stops (metaphorically of course; he’s not an organist) and is working his keys like never before. For you, and you…and, you.

Godfrey’s Magic Piano turns the tale of Sparky on its head. Rather than the young boy having fantasies of piano wizardry, this well-maturing man is celebrating the years of the piano mastery he has under his belt. No tricks, no talking pianos. Just the magic sounds emanating from 10 fingers trained by the instrument like so many Lipizzaner’s.

Songs with, and without words

The heart of Godfrey’s Magic Piano is in the piano arrangements of the songs he loves. Giving them a twist, a trill and tremolo – the songs live with and without words - and it’s your turn to hear the real magic. 

Combining the best musical inventions of Elton John, Billy Joel, Tori Amos, Noel Coward, Leonard Cohen and – of course – his own, with a magic formula known only to himself, Johnson is serving a banquet of musical flavours that must be tasted at least once in every lifetime.

Come and enjoy an evening of foot stomping, tongue wagging fun.

Godfrey Johnson recently appeared in the Showmax production, Tali’s Wedding” and was again nominated for a Fleur du Cap Theatre Award in 2020.  Recent shows include performing alongside Pieter-Dirk Uys in “Bambi Sings the FAK Songs and Other Struggle Anthems” as well as the four-time Fleur du Cap nominated play, “VASLAV”.
