Weekend Warriors

Weekend Warriors focuses on just two things, playing great music and having fun.

There’s no better way to get back to playing music than joining Weekend Warriors. As a Weekend Warrior you’ll be playing with other musicians of a similar level and playing the music you love, from Daddy Cool to Snow Patrol.

What’s more Weekend Warriors is fun, the Weekend Warriors program takes away all the hassles of organising rehearsals and gigs, leaving you to get on with want you want to do… making great music.

Let the good times roll!!…

Weekend Warriors is an adventure that begins with a jam and ends with a gig........See suggested song list at the bottom of this page.

The Weekend Warrior program provides all the latest gear, the rehearsal space, a coach and even the other members of your band! After the jam you’ll rehearse one night a week for four weeks and then finish off with a gig in a local club for your friends, family and fellow Warriors. Again it’s all arranged, the Weekend Warrior program provides the staging, the sound, the lighting and even the roadies. All you have to do is show up, have fun and be a star!!

If you are between 35 – 60 (or either side and love good rock, rock ‘n roll from the 60′s, ’70′s and ’80′s and even new music) and you just want to play in a band again or for the first time, then we will hook you up with other players….no probs!

If you can play a few chords, keep time or hold a tune, that’s about all you need.

Guitarists, drummers, bass players, keyboard players, saxophonists, singers….everyone is welcome!

The Weekend Warriors program does everything possible for you to make this happen.

So to get started, it’s as simple as:

  1. Filling in the Warriors enrolment form
  2. Calling the store for further details
