- The ubiquitous Max T can be seen and heard at The PANDORA Inn, (Restronguet, past Mylor) on a Friday night.
- Well-known local recording artist, jOhNcOcKs has now put the finishing touches to his latest solo CD (see reviews). He's looking for a venue for the premiere - any offers? If you want to sample his previous oeuvres click here.
- For a wide range of pre-owned sounds drop in at ROSES RECORDS & TAPES, now opposite the Star & Garter in High St having moved from the Market On the Moor. Martin has a good selection of jazz and blues but much else besides including hip-hop, clothing and skateboards for the more progressive citizen. He and Liz are adding a section for local artists and would welcome a visit if you've got a release to promote.
- Word is that THE JAZZ FOUNDATION will be back at the Princess Pavilion Cafe monthly this summer. Their alternate Tuesday booking at Tricky Dicky's (Redruth) was temporarily suspended due to a licensing hiccup but is now restored. We hope to profile their doyen of Cornish saxophonists, Ray Roberts, in the near future.
- The Star & Garter has more good music every Sunday evening with the mellow guitar and fluent vocals of "CAPTAIN VELVET". The Cap'n features some of his own fine compositions in a mix of Jazz, Blues and standards and has something to please all but the stoniest ears.
- Was introduced recently to a terrific BLUES SITE, www.movinmusic.co.uk, which is run by locally-based drummer, Mike Hellier. Artists represented include The Mick Pini Band, The Blue Bishops, The Jonathan Kalb Band, The Big Town Playboys, Blues Move, James O'Hara's Detonators and The James Hunter Band (formerly Howling Wilf). Click in for lots of real kickin' tracks.
- FUTURE VENUES to be visited include, The Waterfront, The Watermans, The Quayside, Nancy's and more on The Jacobs Ladder and The Pirate.
