Dunedin Musicians club 


Manse st Dunedin every Thursday 9pm


http://dunedinmusosclub.com/


About Us

The Dunedin Musicians' Club, affectionately known a The Musos' Club, was established in 1974 and has survived the ups and down of the economy and the changing music scene to become what it is today.

We are a non profit organisation originally formed to provide a place "After Hours" for working musicians in Dunedin. This has long since turned into a thriving club for not only working musicians, but all musicians young and old and generally for anyone who loves music and having a great time!

Mission

The mission of the Club can be summed up as:

A space where musicians can gather to socialise and network;

A space where musicians can perform and practice;

A space that encourages and fosters the creation of original music;

A space accessible to younger musicians, where they can be fostered and mentored by fellow, more experienced musicians.

The New Edinburgh Folk Club runs every Sunday from 7.30pm at The Church Cafe, Restaurant and Cinema, 52 Dundas St. All welcome. (Check the Club Event Calendar to see what's on.)

Auckland Blues Club's Blues Jam 

The Auckland Blues Club's Blues Jam nights are held on the second Wednesday of every month.


The doors open at 8.15pm and the jam will start around 8.30pm. 

The aim of the Blues Jam night is to encourage musicians of all levels to come along and play and thereby giving local blues artists the chance to gain recognition and experience in front of an audience, or just have some fun.

It also provides a networking and social ground for aspiring and established blues musicians to mingle, and exchange ideas and techniques.

Bring your guitars, harps, voices, drum sticks and whatever instrument you play.

The club does supply a drum kit and a bass amplifier, but please don't rely on being able to borrow gear, especially guitars or guitar amplifiers, so guitar players should bring an amp if possible.

Everyone is welcome to come along and join in, but in the interests of fair play and to make sure the night runs smoothly, you must adhere to a few Blues Jam night rules.

This is Auckland's only dedicated blues jam and it is an opportunity to network with others who love the blues, both musicians and enthusiasts.

Non musicians – we need you too! It won’t work without an enthusiastic audience, so come along and enjoy a great night of blues from local and visiting musicians.
