30th birthday BBQ
We are holding our 30th birthday this Sunday 24th March starting at 3pm. We're having a bbq, and the club is providing the meat, so all welcome and please bring a salad or a pudding, cutlery and your own plate.
We proudly consider the Motueka Country Music Club to be one of the friendliest around. With more than 90 members, country music is certainly alive and well throughout the region. Our enthusiastic membership is made up of young and old alike, with all music tastes catered for. On many a club day you can find yourself enjoying everything from faithful old sing alongs, to upbeat numbers fresh out of Nashville.
Our dedicated musicians offer great backing and support for our talented entourage of singers. We are also very lucky to have a number of recording artists and multiple award winners within our membership, and are particularly proud of our young up and coming artists, starting from as young as three.
The Club was founded by a small group of enthusiasts in 1983. Monty Gibbins was a founding member and along with a small hard working committee introduced the Top of the South Country Music Awards, the first two as an amalgamated event held in Nelson. Renowned singer Faye Charlett was also involved with initiating the success of the soon to be annual event.
We meet the every second Sunday at the Band Rooms in Old Wharf Road, beside the Recreation Centre. Normally we start at 4.00pm and end around 7pm. Everyone welcome. We now have quite a few people from Nelson coming over for these club days.
There is always a backing band on hand so if anyone wants to get up and have a go at singing bring along 4 chord charts and go for it.
There is a membership fee for one year - $20.00 per couple $10 single. A $2.00 per person door charge covers
hall hire and a cuppa. WE WELCOME NEW MEMBERS. LOVE TO SEE SOME YOUNG ONE JOIN US.
If you play guitar do come along - there is always someone experienced to help those starting to learn.
