Special Saturday (Monthly) Events
1st Saturday of every month is BIG BAND Jazz afternoon from 3pm. Every 4-6 weeks we will have an event night that includes tributes to major acts or local artists. The Australian Eagles Show, The Beach Boyz, The Beatlegs and the Creedence Show have already played great shows in 2017. Future acts this year include INEXCESS, 70s V 80s show, the David Bowie show and Round Mountain Girls in our 2017 schedule.
EVENT NIGHTS and reserved seating. Our event nights are proving to be very popular and recently we’ve introduced variations, including dinner & show, limited reserved seating (both at a cost) and free seating. To answer the question why…..
We began with a NO reservation/first in best dressed policy. However at the February Eagles show, we had a group ‘unofficially’ reserve 30 or so seats and other smaller groups doing likewise. This led to some minor arguments and disruptions and I’m sure most would agree it’s not a good look to see a person holding down a batch of unfilled seats while many people arrive and looking for a seat. At this time a group of members said ‘we’d be happy to pay a small cover charge to reserve a seat’…..
So, we decided to split the room roughly in half and ensure we had 80-100 seats of pay for/reserved seats and 80-100 free/first in best dressed seats. The reserved seats were charged at $8 (a $5 club food/bev voucher was given back on the night). Having seen this system now in place for two events we can say that the vast majority of people are comfortable with this system. Not perfect, but better. To be fair some members/visitors are not happy, some say we should charge all and others say we shouldn’t call it a free show with a charge. In July, we tried Our answers to this….
To charge all – we prefer to keep an open room for ease of access in and out for staff serving meals, clearing tables etc and for patrons to move freely and easily. The open plan adds a great visual and aural ambience to the Club to see/hear what’s going on. It also allows people to sit free of charge at the back end of the room and into the Bistro seating and still hear/see the act and wander up to the dance floor if they choose to.
You shouldn’t call it a free show – we don’t wish to argue the point forever about this. Yes we do charge for some seats but we have yet to have a situation where any member or visitor could not sit around the side wings, back of the room or in the Bistro. Not one member/visitor has not been able to enjoy the show at no cost. We will endeavour to clarify the seating arrangements for future events in more detail via this website, social media and printed flyers and advertisements.
