Due to the great success of live music in City Square it has been decided to extend the musical line-up for the rest of March.
Since Mid-January Coffs Harbour City Council and the City Centre Masterplan Committee have been supporting local and visiting artists by commissioning a live music series in City Square.
The feedback from the community has been extremely positive adding to the arts and culture buzz that is taking off in the City Centre. Businesses are also enjoying having more customers come to sit down and eat, drink and stay longer to enjoy the free live music.
This Live and Local music series will continue throughout March with musicians scheduled every Wednesday at 10.30am in City Square.
The March Line-up includes:
Wed 10th March Raku One O’Gaia
Wed 17th March Sam Dyball
Wed 24th March Looking for Lucy
Wed 31st March Alicia Parry.
Musician Sam Dyball is a young singer songwriter from Nana Glen. For the past 5 years he has been performing with family trio “D’boyzos” and has now decided to try out the world of solo performance.
In this span of 5 years he has performed over 450 shows including performances supporting bands and artists such as The Black Sorrows, Wendy Matthews, Kasey Chambers, Troy Cassar-Daley and Reece Mastin, just to name a few.
“Having this opportunity that gets me into a local, outdoor and live space is perfect. I can put myself out there and try out some of the new songs I’ve been writing.
“It is really refreshing to have access to a larger space like this as the social distancing rules have resulted in much smaller crowds for musicians.
“I’m looking forward to be able to reach more people and share the tunes and good vibes with Coffs Harbour locals,” Sam said.
Busking is also back in the Coffs City Centre and free for locals to book a spot in the City Centre.
Council manages busking that occurs in public spaces with designated sites. Council does not look after busking that occurs on private property. Public liability and adherence to the booking terms & conditions is required. For more info visit https://www.coffsharbour.nsw.gov.au/ and search ‘busking’.
In the event of wet weather Live and Local performers will be situated undercover in the Foot Court on Level 1 of Coffs Central.
