In the first event since the passing of SA Music Hall OF Fame stalwart David ‘Daisy’ Day, the juggernaut Adelaide Music Collective will host an array of Jazz legends, in addition to its synonymous inductions in what will be a momentous evening. Hosted by Keith Conlon, inductees include the late Mike Stewart, Bob Jeffery, Hall Hall, Bob Hower, and Bill Polain (who will also perform). Other musical acts will be marmalade Trio, The New Cabal, and headliners the Mike Stewart Big Band featuring Bob Jeffery. Having recently returned from London where he inducted Robert Stigwood into the SA Music Hall Of Fame, organiser and founder Enrico Morena told Glam Adelaide that things are looking up for the AMC and there are some ‘real surprises’ in store this year.
Given the momentum and ever-growing popularity that the Collective has achieved in such a short time, the initiative has blossomed into consistently sold out shows that provide a bridge between our musical history and future. The stars of yesteryear serve as mentors for the upcoming artists in a fantastic collaboration of musicianship, whilst honouring those who’ve paved the way by way of inducting them into the Music Hall Of Fame. If you haven’t been to one of these yet, you’re missing out on an amazing evening. Glam Adelaide have been fortunate enough to cover the sessions since the first one and have seen the passion and drive that makes these nights ever so special. If you love music, or even if you don’t, get out and support local musicians and help keep the industry flourishing.
As the AMC Sessions and inductions show, Adelaide has been a significant contributor to the work of music and has been the creative breeding ground for many success stories. Glam Adelaide have been proud to have been a part of the AMC story since it commenced last year, and we couldn’t recommend these evenings highly enough!
The next session is at The Goodwood Institute this Friday 29th May at 7:30pm, and tickets (while they last) are available at www.trybooking.com/129864
