St Ives is well known for its music scene with diverse genres and styles of music playing throughout the town from virtuoso performances in the Chapel Arts Season to Casa Vida at Floods, the town’s Music Festival, this weekend’s Picnic in the Park and of course the amazing Old Riverport Jazz & Blues Festival in September.

At the same time as we learn of potentially a new nightclub in town and the Corn Exchange too aims to stage high quality live music events that can compete with the best venues in Cambridgeshire. Last month saw the award winning heavy rock band ‘Powderhead’ storm the building with an amazing performance.

August will see the next presentation from local music promoters ‘3rd Rock’ who will bring the band ‘Strangers Knowmore’ with two great supporting bands.
