On Thursday Nov 22, the Arkaba Hotel was inducted into the SA Music Hall Of Fame.

Over 100 musicians alongside close family and friends of the Hurley Hotel Group filled the iconic Top Room in celebration of over 50 years of live music and entertainment at the Arkaba Hotel.

The evening hosted by Gary Burrows (APRA) and Julie Reynolds (DJ Hollywood) showcased local and diverse talents from the past 50 years plus upcoming artists from the South Australian music industry.

The Premier of South Australia, the Hon Steven Marshall MP formally presented the SA Music Hall Of Fame plaque to owners of the Arkaba Hotel, Peter Hurley AO and Jenny Hurley.

Throughout the evening, past and present South Australian artists took to the stage performing their own original music. The extensive line up included emerging artists Sean Braithwaite, Daniel Cameron, Kiera, Lucas Day and Nick Deegan followed by music legends Trev Warner, Dave Blight, Swannee, Phil Manning and Chris Finnen accompanied by the AMC Combo.

Over the years, the Arkaba Hotel has been home to acts such as Cold Chisel, Midnight Oil, Diesel, Thirsty Merc, Paul Kelly, Tex Perkins, Mental As Anything, The Cure and many more.

Established as a premier entertainment venue in Adelaide, the Arkaba continues to deliver great quality events - whether it be weekly live music throughout the hotel or a national touring band, tribute show, DJ or comedian in the iconic Top of the Ark.

The Arkaba Hotel thanks Enrico Morena, Founder of the Adelaide Music Collective for the recognition and induction into the SA Music Hall Of Fame and Ian Horne for attending on behalf of the Australian Hotels Association (SA), proud sponsors of the SA Music Hall Of Fame.
