Available as a solo act or a duo or a full band upon request.
With A huge variety of music featuring top hits from over the years, almost anything is playable on request. If a song is played to me then I can generally play it by the end of the song. My show consists of requests from the audience which creates a constant interaction with my public.
I do collaborate with other musicians from time to time and am constantly involved with recording new songs and increasing my musical repertoire and ability. I am also flexible when fitting in with entertainment programs and adjust to the needs of the client.
I host karaoke should it be asked for and also provide a DJ service. Personal performances are without backing unless requested. Years of experience in different environments and a sense of humour makes every show fun and dynamic, I have learned to play every performance like it’s my last. I can adjust from background music to singalongs and make sure that the music played between live sets is complacent with the surroundings.
Also, as a songwriter sometimes I like to throw in a few originals as well with a full danceable sound throughout the show.
Currently residing in Pretoria, I would like to continue my solo career in the hospitality industry.

2016 – 2019 - First Resorts Group (Resort Entertainment)
La Montagne Ballito
At resort poolside venues the children are not forgotten and encouraged to sing Twinkle twinkle little star and various other children's songs. They participate along with many adults in line dancing, the cha-cha slide, the Macarena, The Birdie song and more activities in conjunction with the resort entertainment programs. I feel that holidays consist of memories that people take away with them. I do make a point of providing those memories for adults and children alike.

“Craig Jack Lewis Coe entertains Tuesday Rostrum members at the festive July lunch. SINGER, songwriter and guitarist Craig Jack Lewis Coe, who has wandered across continents as a professional musician for the last 17 years, was the perfect choice as the guest entertainer when Tuesday Rostrum celebrated ‘Christmas in July’. From his first offering, a breezy rendition of ‘Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head’, in honour of the welcome rain that fell that day, to his final encore, he charmed, entertained, amused and delighted his audience. Not only an extremely talented singer and versatile musician, Craig has a sunny stage presence, a great sense of humour and an incredibly warm and relaxed rapport with his audience.”
