Saturday Session 17 July – Going Ahead

Saturday Session at The Gov 17th July still going ahead.

We are looking forward to a cracking afternoon with 5 bands lined up.
Further to the implementation of COVID restrictions overnight, we have consulted with the management at The Gov and determined the Saturday Session will go ahead with guidelines in accordance to the directions of SA Health. Please be aware these are subject to change at any time so please keep up to date.
The Gallery area is limited to maximum 69 people excluding staff, band performing, and SA Live Music Club’s Event team. Both performing band and Event team will be considered to be workers and thus not counted in the audience.
Audience members should not be dancing or singing, and seated at all times. Per the Directions, singing is allowed by performers so long as it is not in a choir, or karaoke setting.
It is imperative that everyone does the QR Code Check-In. If you need assistance please ask the staff.
The Event Team and Band members will be setting up from Noon, and then bumping out by 5pm.
The Club provides the backline including 2 x Boss Katana II 50W amps, acoustic drum kit, bass amp, music stands, guitar leads, power, keyboard, etc. The Gov provides all the front of house including microphones, stands, mic cables, monitors, etc. If you intend to use your own equipment please let one of the Event team know ahead of your set.
All gear eg. guitar cases, drum cases, etc. should be stowed to the back of the Gallery near the kitchen, behind the sound desk.
All hygiene steps will be carried out on the gear including microphones cleaned after each use as usual. If you have your own suitable microphone for example that you want to use is fine, just let us know before you go on. See the Gov web site for more information on their Covid procedures if you’re interested.
Staff will set up the Gallery accordingly from Midday onwards ready for the 1pm start, and yes the bar doesn’t open until 1pm, so please be patient and courteous. They will be moving the tables around and putting the names on tables accordingly.
It is preferable to book a table by calling the Gov on 8340 0744, especially if you intend to have a meal. Several bookings have already been made so please get in quick. Otherwise please be seated at all times.
See you there.
Events Team

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 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.
