GGG (Guitar Gig Guide) 9th August - South Morang and Surrounds

Well the Bon Jovi show last week at The Commercial Hotel was pretty good! The band was solid and the singer was a lot better than the real thing. Not hard I know.........


Let's check out where the guitars are playing at the usual haunts and elsewhere in Melbourne. Pretty slim pickings this week in the local area. I would love to go and see Teramaze but nobody else that I know has heard of them .




1) The Commercial Hotel ( South Morang / Epping / Yarrambat /Diamond Creek and surrounds)


The best live band and bar area for some distance and some high quality bands and artists on a regular basis.


2) The Bridge Inn Hotel (Mernda/Doreen/Yarrambat / Yan Yean and surrounds)


More of a sports bar - and a good one at that - they do have some good live music from time to time


3) The Shoppingtown Hotel (Doncaster and surrounds)


A great venue that has some pretty high profile acts from Australia and overseas from time to time. A bit of a hike for some of us but quite handy for our students in Diamond Creek , Greensborough and Eltham.


4) Musicland (Fawkner and surrounds)


Like the Shoppingtown Hotel it is a bit of a hike for some of us but for our students in Epping , Lalor and Bundoora it's not too far. Musicland is much more than a live venue and has a music store (where we get some of our guitars serviced) and also a recording studio setup. Quality bands play there regularly.



So what is on The Guitar Dojo's radar for the coming week?
