Riverland’s Musical Society is renowned throughout the region for their regular productions of popular musical theatre classic.
Cellar doors and other attractions around the region embrace the arts and host exhibitions and from time to time feature live performances ranging from opera to soulful solo vocalists.
With an abundance of pubs and clubs across the Riverland it is no wonder there is a strong local music scene which follows. Key venues in the region include the Loxton, Berri and Renmark Hotels and Renmark club all whom regular feature nationally recognised live acts and bands.
Smaller venues like the Cobdogla and Loxton clubs also have regular gigs supporting grass roots bands and performers from across the Riverland.
