Rare opportunity to see 10 songs re-recorded by SA Hall of Fame Inductees.

In its continuing drive to recognise and promote local musicians and artists the Adelaide Music Collective & SA Hall of Fame (AMC & SAMHF) is offering a truly unique experience to attend 10 recording sessions where 10 classic songs by 10 SA Music Hall of Fame Inductees will be re-recorded by 10 of SA's best up and coming singer-songwriters at Adelaide's premier studio, Mixmasters at 21 Darwin Avenue, Hawthorndene.

The Mixmasters Sessions is the brainchild of AMC Founder, International drummer, Enrico 'Mick' Morena, who has an extensive experience of performing with the majority of SA Hall of Fame inductees. In fact his successful career overseas was inspired by these Adelaide inductees which makes him feel proud that he came from such a rich musical history of such high achieving original artists, who have gained recognition here in Australia and overseas.
Morena said, "I speak with authority, when I say, 'I've played with many international artists when I was based in London, and when I compare my experiences, I know it was my performing with our inductees that inspired me."

As Record and Co-Producer, Morena has invited world renown violinist, Julian Ferraretto, to co-produce with recording the Mixmasters Sessions. Ferraretto is highly in demand as a soloist and ensemble player in the jazz scene. He has performed with the local jazz/folk group, The Baker Suite, as well as WOMADelaide and Elder Conservatorium alumni at the Scott Theatre, including ARIA 2013.

AMC Founder and International drummer Enrico 'Mick' Morena said, "The Mixmasters Sessions continue what AMC & SAMHF set out to achieve, and that is to provide these young musicians in their 20's and 30's the opportunities to play and connect with the older and more experienced performers.
