It is this support given by various legendary singers/musicians/entertainers from the 50's-80's era to the AMC Sessions that have made the series so popular and special in fostering Adelaide as the centre of recognizing the internationally recognized achievements of South Australian musicians.

Enrico (Mick) Morena founder of the AMC, said, "Since March 2014, the AMC Sessions have brought together five generations of established high achieving musicians and performers and at the same time created a strong much-needed link between this fraternity of artists.
The sessions offer young musicians in the 20's and 30's opportunities to jam with and connect with the older and more experienced performers,"
The aim of AMC sessions and The SA Music Hall of Fame is to motivate that development and recognition so Adelaide is recognized as having a profile and stature like Nashville, Austin and Seattle."
What we have established is the starting-point of a movement to transform the energy and focus of fostering Adelaide music to become part of music history and for Adelaide to be internationally-recognized for our artistic creativity and excellence. If you haven't yet made the effort to be present at the AMC sessions, then you owe it to yourself to get along as you are in for something special."
