Presented by Civic Theatre Newcastle
Civic Bar Beats is a series of free Friday night music sessions with a relaxed summer night vibe.
Featuring a great line up of talented local musicians we’ll be throwing open the doors from 5pm and inviting guests to drop in, either before a Civic or Playhouse show, or just because they want to enjoy the music, food and happy hour from 5-6pm.

What makes you want to do what you are doing?
I absolutely love music. I love discovering wonderful 50-year-old tunes that I haven’t heard before. I love playing them in bars and having a chat with punters and other DJs over a few beers.
Describe your sound
I love all sorts of music, but I love to play soul, funk, rockabilly, punk, rhythm and blues, garage and Jamaican oldies on vintage 7” singles, aka 45s.
