2006 was another great year for CODA culminating in the release of their second studio masterpiece Calling Mission Mu which according to Tsunami Magazine "has unquestionably established Coda as the most fantastic band in Australia. Coda have always been a great force both in the studio and in the live setting, yet Calling Mission Mu sees them rise in maturity to a level of mind boggling brilliance that is rarely achieved." (10/10 review, Tsunami Magazine, Dec 2006)
Highlights for the band included their performances at The Armidale Musician's Club, Adelaide Festival, Norman Lindsay Tribute at the
Sydney Opera House Studio & Campbelltown Arts Centre, Parramatta Riverbeats & Byron Bay's Coorabell Hall.
2007 kick starts with a bang for CODA with more live performances (see Gig Guide for details). This is the first opportunity to get your hands on some hot new CODA T-shirts not to mention catch their amazing live show for the new year! If you have not yet been captivated by their magic, here's what Adelaide's InDaily wrote of their recent performance at Adelaide Festival Centre ... "You probably won't believe this. A bunch of colourful Sydneysiders have succeeded where Tubular Bells, Bond and Milan Four Sopranos, supported by huge marketing budgets, have failed: modern classical musician's are cool. Not a believer? Then you obviously did not witness CODA's performance at the packed Adelaide Festival Centre last Friday night as this five-piece purveyor of fused classical/electronic/instrumental/jazz with a seasoning of middle eastern flourishes sailed into a succession of stunning tunes, deep rhythms and signature strings from the sweetly sophisticated soundscape that is its second album Calling Mission Mu." (InDaily Adelaide, Dec 2006)
