Black Coffee


Black Coffee is here! If you are looking for a professional covers band that are not loud and in your face and who play a wide range of music from jazz, swing and salsa with a few soul, pop and rock and roll songs, then this is what you are looking for. Black Coffee have been regulars on the Hobart music scene for the past 5 years playing almost every Sunday at the Queen’s Head Hotel, and at various wedding and corporate events. The musicians in the band have over 50 years experience between them. The band is perfectly suited to weddings and events where people dance or talk easily while listening to the band. The band- can, of course, be loud if requested. Black Coffee are made up of Bass Guitar and vocals (Rod Lowe), Drums (Stephen Marskell), and vocals (Kalo Lowe) and become a 4 piece outfit with the addition of saxophone (Scott Cashion). This gives the band a fuller and more exciting sound for bigger events.

Black Coffee were a fabulous addition to our corporate event at MONA. The band were professional, friendly and set a great tone for the evening. Thanks for a great night and humouring an unusual song request.

Black Coffee played at our wedding at Mona in March this year and were a perfect match for our day we can’t recommend them highly enough. They were extremely professional in terms of setting up and packing up at the end of their performance, their sets were to schedule through the night, and the music was fantastic. Kalo has a fabulous voice which is warm and strong, and the overall sound was always at a perfect level for the event. Thank you so much for being part of our day!
