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.
