South Australia Music Hall of Fame is on the move
The Australian Music Collective and South Australia Music Hall of Fame is expanding, and moving to the music, arts and tech cluster St.Paul’s. Creative Centre.
“This move will result in a newly curated and updated exhibition honouring SA music and affiliated artists,” the AMC says.
The official relaunch takes place on Friday December 20 with the induction of Melbourne-based cult heroes Dave Graney and Clare Moore.
The two will play a post-induction show at ‘The Jade adjoining St Paul’s’.
Before the move, the HoF will induct the band GANGgajang, best known for its 1985 signature tune ‘Sounds of Then (This Is Australia)’.
Their ceremony takes place on November 15 at Prospect Town Hall.
Four of the original six members were born and raised in Adelaide before they moved to Sydney.
Celebrated for their achievements are the late Chris Bailey, Graham “Buzz” Bidstrup, Geoffrey Stapleton and Robbie James.
The band continues to record and tour, and maintained a steady lineup until Bailey’s passing in 2013.
The HoF has inducted South Australian acts from Angels to Zoot, with Masters Apprentices, Cold Chisel, Archie Roach, Stars, The Superjesus guitarist Orianthi, and The Twilights in between.
Also honoured have been live music venues, media identities and managers.
