PLAYING OUT LOUD!
Welcome to the latest edition of Playing Out Loud,
POL for short, a monthly guide to live music
in the South of England, with gig listings, articles, interviews, news, CD and
gig reviews and much more. We now get nearly 250,000 hits per month, reflecting
the success of our mission to stimulate interest in live music in Hampshire,
Dorset and Wiltshire and parts of adjoining counties.
Jazz, pop, blues, folk, country, rock, soul and classical music are all covered
- if itís live itís here. Just click on the headings above to go where you want
to go, or use our search engine to keep track of your favourite artists.
As experts in the music media field with a host of contacts in the music
industry, we also offer our services, for a small fee, to bands and performers
looking to improve their press, media or web content, and get more gigs, and to
venues wishing to raise their profile and pull in more customers. Please email
me for more details. And if you like the look of this website our website
manager can also help you set up your own website or improve your existing
one. Again, just email for more information.
donít forget to look out for AND Magazine where PLAYING
OUT LOUD has a
double-page spread in each issue. The magazine covers the same eographical area
as POL and also includes leisure, travel,
food, fashion, cinema, theatre and
many other subjects.
Welcome to the November edition of Playing Out Loud. As
usual weíve got pages and pages of live music
Listings which includes more
information about the artists and styles than most websites, and in our

outings. Album, gig and book reviews will be added during the month so keep
