April Events Cancelled

We regret that the April Saturday Session and Random Bands Celebratory Gig is CANCELLED in accordance with health advice to follow social distancing protocols and to avoid non-essential meetings during the current pandemic.

We anticipate that the promoters and venue managers for the April Club Cool will announce the cancellation of that event in light of the Government’s recently announced ban on indoor meetings of more than 100 people.

The SA Live Music Club regrets the inconvenience to participants but considers the health and safety of its members, guests and audiences to be of paramount importance.

New Random Bands Project

By popular request, Random Bands is back.

Like Random Jam, this gives members, former members and guests the chance to play with new people or try out a second instrument in a random band.

But Random Bands takes it a step further with a chance for the random band to play at a one-off gig in the Gov Front Bar.

For more information, click here to see the Random Bands flyer.

Registrations close Thursday 27 Feb. Bands will be introduced to each other at an informal meeting on Tuesday 3 March, 7.00pm in The Gov Balcony Bar, and perform at a Celebratory Gig at The Gov on Saturday 4 April.

Each random band will be invited to showcase approximately 30 mins of material to the energetic crowd that frequents Random Bands and SA Live Music Club gigs.

Click here for more information and registration details.

Please note: The Random Bands project is intended to keep members and former members engaged with the SA Live Music Club and give guests a taste of Club activities through participation in a fun event.

  • does not include the Club’s Christmas Party and its half dozen ad hoc whiteboard slots
  • includes only two slots at the Welcome Gig for established club bands; there were six slots at that gig but the four slots for the new Round 48 bands are not counted in the total.
  • includes two slots for the guest club bands at the Random Bands afternoon; the other slots at that gig were not counted because they were for the one-off random bands.
