A full-time career entertainer, Col draws on a wealth of experience from his work and travels in Australia and overseas, including nine years in North America and six years in South East Asia. He is currently based on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast but always keeps an eye on distant horizons. He has appeared consistently in the best resort hotels, restaurants, cafes, taverns, and clubs from the Great Barrier Reef to the shores of the magnificent Sydney Harbour, his birthplace. A true troubadour, he was Noosa and Bali's first full time surfer-musician, working long residencies in both idyllic locations. With a deep commitment to his craft and no intention of stopping doing what he loves best, he continues to draw praise from management and audiences of all varieties for his professional manner, individual style and distinctive voice.

An accomplished and dedicated guitarist, he plays acoustic, six and 12-string, classical and Fender Strat/Tele guitars. In the recording studio he plays bass and keyboards.

An expansive repertoire is enhanced by self-composed, unobtrusive backing sequences, skillfully customized to give an individual, yet recognizable rendition of both popular and obscure songs.

He is equally comfortable performing the majority of his repertoire with just acoustic guitar which is how he made his living for the first ten years of his career. If the power goes out, the show goes on!

Although primarily a soloist, Col has had long working relationships with some of Australia's finest pros, notably Ewan MacKenzie, Bill Payne, Ross Williams, Doc Span, Gavan Anderson, Peter Wells and Steve Hutchinson. He has shared the stage with his mentors and contemporaries such as Doug Ashdown, Marion Henderson, Mike McClellan and Greg Quill. Never the shy one, he enjoyed great success on all of Australia's "New Faces" shows, once being runner up to Paul Hogan on Chanel Nine's National New Faces Grand Final. Other television appearances included "Reg Lindsay's Country Homestead" singing one original tune and three Jimmy Buffett tunes, much to the delight of drummer Tommy and guitarist, Phil Emanuel!

Col provides a full range of entertainment from low key, atmospheric background artistry for dining and listening, to an energetic & lively, audience involved show, including a wide selection of dance music.

Blessed with an amazing memory, a skilled original vocal style, a full head of hair and a quick sense of humor, audiences are guaranteed a professional and personalized performance, every time.

Initially optimized for Internet Explorer, not every function may work in various other browsers. However Col would rather spend his time surfing and playing music than crunching Dreamweaver.

For corporate functions of any size, Col is the perfect choice for live music and entertainment! In this capacity, his services have been repeatedly engaged by the Novatel, Hyatt, Sheraton, Inter-Continental, and Hilton groups, to name a few. His ability to perform almost his entire repertoire with or without sequence backing, at an appropriate volume level, has drawn praise from businessmen and Events Coordinators all over the world.

There are few occasions more important in a couple's life than their wedding day and no one appreciates this more than Col who has provided his services to countless Australian and overseas couples.
Col At The Grammys
More often than not, wedding receptions are a family affair and his outstanding repertoire appeals to the youngest and most senior wedding guests.
Well before the wedding day, full assistance is given to the bride and groom in their selection of music for the bridal waltz, cutting of the cake and other special requests. From small, intimate receptions to very large gatherings, whether elegantly formal or casually informal, let Col add his unique, caring touch to make that most special of days even more memorable!

To Whom It May Concern,

Col Noble, is a first class, international standard entertainer who has successfully worked with my company here on the Sunshine Coast for over seven years up until his departure from Australia to live and travel overseas.

Col is a talented and professional musician and singer, who we have frequently booked to perform for five star corporate events at the Hyatt Regency Coolum, Novotel Twin Waters Resort and Sheraton Noosa. He has performed as resident musician for five star  venues along the east coast of Australia.

Col prides himself on presenting world class entertainment, utilising top quality equipment. He is competent in the full range of tasks associated with staging and conducting a first class  show, working well under the direction of clients who have asked for a high standard of professionalism.

Col’s friendly manner allows him to happily complement a client or team staging an event with minimal briefing. He is aware of the value of time and works quickly and efficiently. On several occasions, at very short notice, Col has made himself available to work, always with great success.

We have also arranged Col to entertain at major civic functions, for leading sporting clubs and for charity events. He has performed as a musician for the region's most popular restaurants and function venues for private celebrations, from birthdays to weddings, Christmas parties to New Year’s Eve celebrations.

As founding President of Parrotfanalia a chartered member of the International Parrotheads In Paradise Society, a charitable based Jimmy Buffett fan club,. Col conducts  an excellent Jimmy Buffett Parrothead Party, arranging all aspects of the event including marketing and promotion.

Col also works with other musicians including various duo partners to create a show with output and entertainment value equivalent to a band.

Col’s work has been held in high regard here on the Sunshine Coast and his work is a benchmark for other artists. 

 I wish Col well in all of his endeavours and have no hesitation in recommending him to prospective hirers.

Yours sincerely,

Christine Carroll.

Col has performed here on many occasions for our Jimmy Buffett parties which have been immensely popular, not only because of his great sound and knowledge of Jimmy's songs but also due to the way he can work the crowd to it's most full potential.

I have no hesitation in recommending Colin to any establishment as I know he will always be entertaining and professional in his work. If you would like to discus this letter further please do not hesitate to contact me.
