Part band incubator, part muso/singer/band-matching social club, the Club’s goal is to help and support people into playing live music.
Our Club History
The SA Live Music Club grew out of a desire to provide an opportunity for graduates of the the Weekend Warriors ProgramTM to continue to perform and, now has members enjoy getting together regularly and playing music.
The Weekend Warriors ProgramTM started back in 2001 and has held 3 rounds each year since then. It was established in Adelaide by Holden Hill Music and, at the time, the Rock Shop, after being founded in the US in 1993. Still to this day Holden Hill Music continues to enthusiastically run the Program supplying all the gear (amps,guitars, drums, etc.) for the Rounds and as well as providing the rehearsal facilities and musical coach.
The Club is a separate organisation to the Weekend Warriors ProgramTM, which the Australian Music Association (AMA) owns and runs throughout Australia.
Been there, done that you say? What now you ask?
Well, firstly, congratulations on completing a Weekend Warriors Round.
Now we’ll be honest. Not all bands end up staying together after their Round for a whole variety of reasons. If youfind yourself in this situation, the Club is an ideal way to meet other like-minded people, form a new band oracoustic ensemble or get involved in other initiatives such as the Weekend Warrior choir.
The SA Live Music Club values people who are prepared to give playing live music a go. In return we provide lots of support and encouragement and, importantly, plenty of opportunities to play regularly.

The back line, eg. amps, drum kit, cables, etc. and the Front- Of-House gear like Mic’s, stands, leads, console, etc. have beenpurchased over the years and are maintained meticulously so theyare all reliable and ready to go.
All the musicians have to do is bring their own instruments like guitars, and we’ll gear up all the other stuff. But be assured that all the Club’s gear is of a professional standard.
