About Me

The The Absolute Creedence Experience is the ultimate tribute to legendary band Creedence Clearwater Revival. The band has not only faithfully reproduced the Creedence sound and look, but has also captured John Fogerty’s signature vocals and guitar through frontman Ty Coates.

The Women of Rock is a salute to the many remarkable women who have dominated the international rock scene. Front person Caz Coates portrays each iconic woman’s character with a dynamic vocal performance plus on-stage costume changes and both shows are delivered by the same power house musicians.

The Absolute Creedence Experience & Women of Rock together provides a dynamic and memorable performance that is second to none and suited to a broad range of rock fans!

Genres Country Rock, Rock
Members Ty Coates – Lead Vocals & Guitars
When Ty first heard CCR and more importantly John Fogerty, he decided that music was to be his life! John had a profound effect on young Ty and became his mentor and role model on which he built his vocal sound in his formative years.

Ty is no stranger to the Australian rock scene and was frontman for Flash Harry in Perth, where he won the Best Male Vocalist award two years running and sang the National Anthem at the AFL Grand Final. He later formed Sydney-based band The Bombers with Alan Lancaster (Status Quo) and John Brewster (The Angels) and released the album Aim High with several singles, as well as an EP. Ty later formed his own band and became one of the most sought-after session singers in Sydney. It makes good sense that he can now pay tribute to his musical mentor by reproducing that raunchy vocal sound and playing those cool, bluesy licks that made CCR such a uniquely recognisable and influential band.

Caz Coates – Lead Vocals
Caz began singing from early childhood, with performances and her first solo recording by age 12. Fronting several Sydney bands and doing session work she joined The Boys Down Under with other notable Sydney musicians; Ty Coates, Dario Bortolin & Dave Bennett. As an original artist she has recorded an album and continues to write & collaborate. She also formed the rock covers band Smokin’ Rosie which also works weekly. Career highlights have
been original work, singing backing vocals on the Status Quo remake - ‘Matchstick Men’ for the Lancaster Bombers with Alan Lancaster, backing vocals for the Ty Coates Band album as well as studio sessions and live work with some of Australia’s top musicians. Caz has recently moved home to AUS after fronting a top 40’s band the USA & UK.

Ryan Mathison – Drums
Ryan’s music interest has seen him established himself as a highly skilled drummer as well as building he own extremely successful drumming school. Having worked with some of the best in the business, in particular, the Steve Edmonds Band & Revolver, Ryan is a much sought after and diverse player.

Mick Carter – Bass & Vocals
With years of experience working with some of Australia's best, Mick is more than solid in any rhythm section. John Swan & Legends of Rock are just a few of Mick's credits making him a much sought after player and an integral part of The Australian Creedence Show and Women of Rock.
