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.
Rod Coote is an independent indie/folk/pop artist currently based in the Australian coastal city of Newcastle and has found the sonic sweet spot between indie, folk and pop music to create his own unique sound.
From humbled beginnings busking on the streets of his sleepy hometown Manilla NSW, Rod naturally developed his live performance skills and song writing ability at an early age. Rod has established his own fan base by regularly playing live shows both locally in Newcastle and through releasing his own original music . With the release of his Debut EP late last 2019, Rod has supported most established artists such as Australian rock band ‘Chocolate Starfish’ and Irish Folk Duo ‘Byrne and Kelly’. Rod has just released two new singles that he recorded with platinum-award winning producer and folk artists Garrett Kato (Tones & I, Ziggy Alberts, Pete Murray, Julia Stone).
