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?
