New Random Bands Project

By popular request, Random Bands is back.

STOP PRESS: (31 Aug) This is event is fully subscribed and so registrations are now closed.

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 30 August. Bands will be introduced to each other at an informal meeting on Tuesday 4 September 2018 and perform at a Celebratory Gig at The Gov on Saturday 6 October.

Each random band will be invited to showcase approximately 30 mins of material to the energetic crowd that frequents Random Bands and Weekend Warrior 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 Warriors SA Live Music Club and give guests a taste of Club activities through participation in a fun event. It should not be confused with the much larger national Weekend Warriors Program, a completely separate undertaking which provides a full contemporary band experience with a dedicated, professional coach and a big production final concert. We encourage people to check out the national Weekend Warriors Program not only as a fabulous experience in itself, but also as a great way to get back into playing live music. For information about the national Weekend Warriors Program, please click here to visit their website.
Weekend Warriors and Holden Hill Music are sponsors of the SA Live Music Club.

Members Approve New Club Name & Constitution

The club has a new name and streamlined membership processes after members unanimously approved the club’s new Constitution at a Special General Meeting today.

Among the changes, the club will now be known as the SA Live Music Club.

The club retains its positive relationship with the Weekend Warriors Program and completing a Round will still be the primary way for participants to become club members. There will be an additional secondary method of joining by application and being proposed and seconded by current Members and paying a joining fee, subject to a membership cap and a waiting list.

The Associate Member category will be discontinued. Existing Associate members will become ordinary full Members and the band ratio rules will no longer apply.

Changes to membership rules will become effective immediately. Other changes will be implemented gradually over the next few weeks.
