RISING Suffolk band Cheeky Cheeky and the Nosebleeds are to perform in Ipswich at a new live music event on Saturday.

The band from Woodbridge, Framlingham and Saxmundham recently played at the Glastonbury and Latitude festivals and will be at the Ipswich Corn Exchange on Saturday as part of the inaugural night of Live Music Ipswich.

Vocalist and guitarist Charlie Dobney, 19, said: "Two of us live in Woodbridge and the other three are just up the A12 near Framlingham and Saxmundham.

“We started off just playing friends' house parties and didn't really start taking it seriously until May/June 2007. We then started to move towards London, and playing Norwich.

"We haven't really focused on Ipswich for a long enough period of time, partly because the lack of an indie scene. We do have a good fanbase there though and a lot of people message us on MySpace.”
