Since exploding onto the Queensland music scene in 2010, contemporary swing star Craig Martin has performed and thrilled audiences at many top venues across the state.

This modern day crooner, originally from Liverpool England, has performed with many of the UK’s leading big bands, including the UK’s premier big band ‘The Syd Lawrence Orchestra’.

This talented entertainer cleverly combines traditional and contemporary swing with great flair and imagination and is a natural on stage.
