Vale Kylena

We are saddened to learn of the death of our friend and former club member Kylena Vigus in Cairns.

Kylena performed in the Weekend Warriors Round 19 concert in July 2008 and then in various SA Live Music Club bands where she made many friends. She moved to Cairns in Far North Queensland where she pursued her musical career, singing in an acoustic duo in many of the clubs, bars and venues in that city and in various towns and centres along the coast.

The past 12 months were challenging for Kylena, made even more difficult by the loss of performance opportunities as a result of covid restrictions. Kylena found an outlet for her creative talents during that time by making and selling a range of arts and crafts products in her unique artistic style.

In happier times, a few club members managed to catch some of her shows during their visits to that region. They and other Adelaide friends kept in touch with Kylena and gave her support when they could during difficult times.

The SA Live Music Club expresses its condolences to Kylena’s family and friends for their sad loss.

Special Recycling Fundraiser

Donate your 10¢ container deposit recyclables.

We invite all members to join our painless, on-going Club fundraiser in collaboration with Clarke Brothers Recyclers.

How it works:

  • Use the form here to send a message to Clarke Bros.
  • They will deliver a clean, washed drum to your address. It’s about the size of a wheelie bin.
  • Gradually fill the drum with your 10 cent deposit recyclable containers.
  • When it is full, contact Clarke Brothers. They will collect it and leave you an empty one.
  • The recyclers will credit the Club $10 per full drum.

Please see https://salivemusic.club/recycle/ for more details and information about how to join the scheme. Feel free to share or forward to friends and family who might wish to donate their refunds to the club.

Our Facebook Page

Looks like we are collateral damage from Facebook’s dispute with the Australian Government over news content.

Like many other community groups, it seems that all our content has been blocked from Australian viewers.

It’s possible that you might still be able to see it in some browsers or by clicking the link in our Facebook feed in the right hand column. However, we aren’t sure that posts are showing up in followers’ Facebook feeds and there still seems to be an issue viewing our page via the Facebook app.

We are sad that this is happening. We are not a news site, nor a government-related site. We are a reputable, well-established, not-for-profit, community-based social club for recreational musicians and singers.

Facebook has announced that it will be starting an appeals process around 25 Jan for affected community groups to request that their pages be reinstated.

We’ll follow it up when that happens. Meanwhile we’ll continue to publish information for our members and interested followers here.

Saturday Session 18 July – Call for Registrations

Saturday Session at the Gov

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for – SA Live Music Club’s first gig after the lockdown!

Seeking four bands for a 30 minutes set each.

Saturday 18 July in The Gov’s new Restaurant Room.

1.00pm: Load in.

2.00 – 4.30pm: Band performances.

4.30 – 5.00pm : Load out.

Important information

Please read before submitting a registration.

This gig is a bit different from previous ones because of special requirements relating to hygiene and social distancing.

1. The gig will be in the Gov’s new Restaurant Room performance space – not the front bar. With the new Level 3 restrictions in place, it can hold 40 people with another 24 in the overflow “fireplace room”.

2. Band slots are 30 minutes to allow enough time between sets to carry out The Gov’s mandatory equipment cleaning protocols.

3. Bands must comply with The Gov’s cleaning requirements. The main features are:

– mic guards must be screwed off and replaced with disinfected guards in between acts,
– used mic guards must be placed in the “used guards” container for disinfecting (performers may use their own personal mic at their own risk),
– mic leads, stands, amplifier dials and mic bases must be disinfected with either spray or wipes in-between acts.
Disposable gloves and hand santizer are provided.

4. To ensure a speedy turnover between sets, bands are asked to prepare in the saloon room (mid bar) to be able to go on stage and plug in as quickly as possible when they are called. That means bands should make every effort to have their instruments tuned, pedal boards and other equipment set up and ready to plug and play, and have everything ready to go with the minimum of delay. Stage managers will make every effort to ensure that each band gets its full 30 minutes but will ask a band to finish up if it appears to be going over its allotted time.

Please be aware that these requirements are intended to make sure that members and their bands have an opportunity to perform while complying with Government and the Gov’s requirements for the health and safety of all participants.

If more bands apply than the number of slots available, normal selection criteria will apply.

Selection guidelines may be seen here:  https://salivemusic.club/band-selection-guidelines/

For that purpose, the “previous, most recent” event will mean the last event where club bands actually performed, not any planned event for which bands were selected but which was subsequently cancelled.

Registrations are now open at https://salivemusic.club/rego/ until 5.00pm Monday 6 July.
