Summer is here!

After a few weeks of amazing weather it has started to rain again, hopefully it shouldn’t hang around for too long. Forecast for Thursday looks promising. We have been lucky to have some fantastic acts playing recently including Sonic Fusion at the Landmark, James Hollingsworth at The Thatch, Steven Paul Ley at The Chill Bar & The Rivals at The Palladium Club. We don’t always get a chance to make every gig but we have heard good things. If you are interested in posting gig write-ups for the website please let us know.

We have just posted an exclusive release from The Devil Delta Blues Band recorded at The Greatest Blues Show on Earth. The gig raised over £500 for North Devon Hospice and you are still able to donate here. A fantastic effort by all and great evening of entertainment.

Also why not pop down to the Croyde Sandcastle Competition on the 11th of August. As long as the weather holds up it should be a great day out!

Public beta released!

Today we launch the public beta of our site, after many late nights and hours spent staring at screens this is what we have created. The site is built entirely with WordPress, it wasn’t the obvious choice but we are all really happy with what we have created with this CMS. We have added a service to upload your own tracks and given the ability to register for the site with Facebook. At this point expect to see a few bugs here and there, we are still very busy at work getting it ready for the official launch on 4th July. At this point we greatly appreciate any feedback you have for us, this website is for the musical community of North Devon and your input is very important to us. If you have any suggestions for the feature, would like to get involved or simply spotted an error please drop us a message on our contact page. Soon we will be rolling out some new features, including an instrument/kit for sale service along with some other resources. Also check out our Twitter & Facebook profiles!

 

We hope you like it!
