The only sound you will hear is the music
Another Hall o Fame show featuring inductees, Adelaide's music royalty - Dave Blight (Cold Chisel) Chris Finnen (guitar virtuoso) and Trev Warner ( Folk Legend: blue grass fiddle, banjo and more) performing together for the first time with the AMC Combo featuring Richard Coates, Stuart Day, Quinton Dunne and Enrico Morena in unplugged and electric format on Friday, 2 September, 2016.
Licensed bar from 7pm. Doors open at 7.30pm. Music at 8pm in the unique venue of Trinity Sessions, Church of the Trinity, 318 Goodwood Road Clarence Park.
Just a quick heads-up for those who may not have visited Church of the Trinity before. It is unique for its beautiful interiors and timber work and outstanding acoustics. You are bound to be impressed and will certainly enjoy the sounds of music.
If you happen to be one of the few people who is unaware of Australia's premier harmonica player, Dave Blight then listen closely to one of Australia's rock anthems, KHE SANH by Cold Chisel and you will hear Dave's distinctive harp playing weaving behind Jimmy Barnes' vocals. Dave has recorded and toured with the band collectively and individually over the years and remains Cold Chisel's harp player of choice.

Chris Finnen is one of the most respected blues guitarists in Adelaide and Australia and has been an inspiration to generations of local musicians. In August 2013, he was officially recognised and inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in New York.
