This will be followed by a short Hosted Networking Reception where guests will be able to sample some great South Australian products.
Then at 8:15pm the Made in Adelaide Live Music Showcase returns in 2017, featuring Adelaide’s own chanteuse, Carla Lippis followed by soul-roots trio,Wanderers before the final act MANE brings her electro-pop, smoky vocal stylings to the stage.
