TODAY is the day!

As a fantastic line up of live bands gets ready to take to the stage, a new website celebrating all the great musical talent across Suffolk is being launched.

Lovemusic24.co.uk is being set up by The Evening Star and its sister paper The East Anglian Daily Times to provide a comprehensive site for people who love playing music, listening to music or just want to be part of the music crowd.

The website, which is free to sign up to, is up and running from today and will be kicked off with a launch gig at The Steamboat Tavern in New Cut West, Ipswich.

THE WEBSITE

Bands and venues can put online details of their gigs across Suffolk and Essex to create a great guide to what is going on around the two counties.

There is also the chance for bands to upload songs they have written as well as for people to write their own blogs.

On top of all this all music lovers can get their photo albums on line from their favourite gigs as well as sending in reviews of bands they have seen.

And from August all bands will be able to enter their own songs into a monthly Battle of the Bands competition which will culminate in a contest at a venue yet to be revealed next year.

The overall winner will get a fantastic prize of recording time with Ipswich-based Punch studios.

Joe Bailey who runs Punch Studios and Punch Music Academy has offered the chance for the winning band to record a maximum of three songs which will be fully multi-tracked and mastered to professional standards.
