Christchurch Musicians Club

The purpose of the Christchurch Musician's Club is to unite Musician's to exchange and work together to develop talents while providing a source of entertainment.

The ideals of a social "meet and greet" and the opportunity for young musicians to play and learn with older members created a great learning environment which still remains.  Functions are run around an anchor band and invited guests. This is a chance for family and friends plus all musicians at all levels of skill and experience an opportunity to perform "live" in front of an knowledgeable and supportive audience.

JAW Concert review

The last concert of the year for the Christchurch musicians Jazz after Work series and 95 attendees listened and loved the choir lead by Mary Ruston (the Boss) and backed by a great musical quartet.  A very eclectic selection of song choices and vocal arrangements made the concert a stand out and will be remembered for a long time. With such a large group of voices blending and weaving through the magical arrangements and coloured by the piano, violin, bass and drums, the show was vocally very powerful and exciting and a great way to end 2016 at the ARA Jazz school auditorium.

Musicians Club Monthly Functions

Cashmere Club monthly Musician’s Functions

All Club members and supporters

(Held every last Friday starting at 8pm)

are welcome, in fact, encouraged, to attend the regular functions. Members wishing to have a “blow” will be seriously encouraged. As usual, an anchor band will be present and will play the first and last sets.

There will be a P.A system, keyboard, drums, mics, and amps, so it’s easy for you.   Just bring your own instrument.   There is a great stage and the Garden bar acoustics are pretty good.

Door Entry is $5

Bands/acts wishing to perform as an anchor band or guest at future functions are asked to please contact, Bert Parrant  0273548155.

The Club is committed to making this a success
