PLAYING OUT LOUD!
An online monthly guide to live music in the South.
Welcome to the September edition of Playing Out Loud, POL for short. As regular visitors will know, and there are thousands of them now making 50,000+ hits per month, our mission is to stimulate interest in live music and let you know whatís on and where 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. But POL is not just a gigs listing site.
Our Festival Focus section, which has been a popular feature during the summer is slowly winding down, but there are still a number of exciting events before winter sets in, so keep looking.
The Food & Things section is another popular recent innovation. Containing a Restaurant of the Month review, it will be expanded to include other lifestyle-related information with useful tips on places to go, days out, shopping, wine and special offers.
We have also split our Reviews section into Festival, Gig and CD Reviews and continues to feature exclusive interviews and reports linked to current gigs in our Articles section and report the latest news in our News section.
Also, another new section, the Message Board, allows people to submit comments on anything music-related and advertise records or musical instruments for sale or recruit band members free of charge.
We also offer our services, for a small fee, to bands and performers
looking to improve their press, media or web content, and help them get more gigs. With over twenty years media experience, I personally know what is required to get media coverage and how to present it, so email me for more details. If you like the look of this website my website manager can also help you set up your own website or improve your existing one. Again, just email for more information.
One thing we are particularly keen to encourage is more response from our visitors, so let us have your ideas on what you would like to see in POL. So if there are any gaps in our coverage of gigs and venues, just let us know. Now get out there and enjoy some live music!
