Lynn’s newest music venue will host a wealth of talent tomorrow night for round three of Twisted Melon’s Battle of the Bands competition.

With a collection of incredible prizes up for grabs, including the opportunity to perform in front of thousands at Festival Too this summer, the pressure is on for all the acts.

Organiser Triston Finnis said: “We continue our recent trend of giving new venues a chance to sample some of the best acts making up our fantastic local music scene.

“Heat 3 is at The Rathskeller Bar at Hanse House, on the South Quay. This is Lynn’s newest music venue and promises to offer something slightly different to the regular town centre pubs.”

He added: “I can’t wait to put on a gig at this über cool little venue. It has a very good feel and I’m sure it will be another packed heat.”

Competing for the chance to make it through to the semi-finals is The Mojo Slide, a group of musicians united in their passion for blues-inspired alternative music. The Cambridge band write all their own music and play a mixture of classic rock ‘n’ roll, blues and blues-rooted alternative with a handful of covers.

Another Cambridge-based band are four-piece original rock act Finding Ana. Andrew Girling, Andy Webster and Dan Barnes have recently been joined by drummer Holly Myhill, and the new-look line-up are ready to impress with their trademark catchy, original tunes.

Lewis Murphy is a singer/songwriter based in Lynn and hailing from the non-stop musical conveyor belt of Springwood High School. Lewis has chosen to do things slightly differently, performing with his new full band ahead of his very own six-date solo UK tour.

Elvira Stitt is a singer/songwriter originally from Glasgow, who at the tender age of 18 has released two EPs - one with her band Evora and the other, most notably, her debut solo EP The Transparent Man.

The Battle of the Bands starts at 8pm on Saturday and entry is free.
