Griffith Musicians Club Inc. is comprised of a diverse membership of musicians and music enthusiasts based around the city of Griffith NSW, we are primarily a social club that gathers once every month to network and share stories over a meal and a few drinks.
The club has a rich history that has spaned over 4 decades and has seen many changes along the way, most importantly the club has provided a vehicle for local musicians to share information, make new contacts, promote live music and encourage young musicians to continue the tradition.
The club stages some annual events that have become well known in the Griffith community these include;
The Young Musician of the Year Award - aimed to highligh the musical acheivements of teenage musicians in the Griffith area, the winner recieves a financial reward to assist with furthering thier musical studies or career. The nominees are reviewed and shortlisted by a panel of selected club members that come from varous musical backgrounds. The finalists are then presented to the club and members vote on a winner. The finalists and nominees are invited to a perform live in front of an audience where the winner is announced.
The Griffith Musicians Club Ball - Every August the club stages an event that showcases club members performing in bands that are made up of a core of local working bands and incorprates additional musicians to put on a show for the Griffith Community - the event is sold to capacity with anywhere up 1000 people in attendance. All club members volunteer thier time to setup the event and perform on the night. The atmosphere is electric and the performance from 6 - 7 bands keep the guests on the dancefloor all night until the last song is played. A portion of the proceeds from the ball has assisted many local charities over the years. The event is anticipated every year and has become a must attend calendar event for many people in the community.
