Since exploding onto the Queensland music scene in 2010, contemporary swing star Craig Martin has performed and thrilled audiences at many top venues including The Arts Centre Gold Coast, Twin Towns Show Room, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Logan Entertainment Centre, Redland Performing Arts Centre and Brisbane Jazz Club.
This modern day crooner, originally from Liverpool England, has performed with many of the UK’s leading big bands including their premier band ‘The Syd Lawrence Orchestra’.
This talented entertainer cleverly combines traditional and contemporary swing with great flair and imagination. He is a natural on stage, performing many of his own arrangements of the jazz and swing classics with a style unique to him.
Last year was a busy year for Craig, one of the highlights was Craig and his Swing Band being asked to headline Logan’s ‘Jazz and Shiraz’ Festival. Craig was also delighted to perform a swingin’ forty minute set at Logan City’s Lord Mayor’s Christmas Carols Concert where he entertained the crowds alongside ‘TheVoice’ stars Prinnie Stevens and Mahalia Barnes!
But the career high of 2012 was when Craig was invited to perform a duet with Andre Rieu’s Aria award winning, leading soprano Mirusia, at the Redland’s Christmas by Starlight Concert. Together they brought a little ‘Winter Wonderland’ to the event which was attended by an audience in excess of eight thousand people.
Craig is delighted to be performing with his six piece band on the Sunshine Coast at Tewantin-Noosa RSL. The music of Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Dean Martin, Andy Williams and Michael Bublé is in safe hands. Craig’s modern interpretation of big band swing is a treat for everyone who loves the swing genre.

Make a fantastic night of it with a meal from the new Autumn menu in The Bistro and get a great vantage point to catch all the action.
