Musician Finder (Cornwall)
This group was set up to provide an outlet for musicians of all types to exchange ideas between themselves and maybe start/join other like minded musicians with a view to setting up bands/duos etc. A great place to meet others and start on the journey to something special.

Cornish Music Network
The Cornish Music Network FB group was set up by Mr Gary Kennon, a music lover who is very supportive of live music throughout Cornwall. The way it works is so sinple, its brilliant! In a nutshell: Bands join the group and then forward their details of their upcoming gigs to Gary, who in turn ten collates all the gigs from all the bands and posts then in date order on the page. Bands can slo post their gig details direct for maximum exposure. It is a great tool for bands to source new venues, as well as giving fans of live music an extensive list of who's playing where, and when. If you're in a band or love seeing live music, you NEED to join this group! HV

Modern Music is one of the top musical equipment suppliers in the county and probably the whole of the South West. Based in Truro, they sell guitars, basses, amps, effects and also have a dedicated drum department. Proprietor Andy Pascoe is a great guy and really knows his stuff and is very helpful, as are all his staff. Pop over to their page on Facebook, or even better call in to their shop in Truro and say hi and maybe pick up a bargain while you're there!
RussAudio is ran by Russ Fletcher at his home near Camborne. He is a very experienced electronics engineer who in recent months has began making a name for himself on the local band circuit for being 'the man' to go to for amp servicing, repairs and mods. He can also sort out wiring issues in guitars, effect pedals and carry out pedal modifications along the lines of the infamous Keeley and Anaolman Man mod kits. As well as amps, pedals and guitar electrics he can also fix your DVD's, CD's and other Hi-Fi equipment. Despite being always busy, he always tries to get the work turned around quickly to keep us muso's on the road!!
Bobby's Helmet (Rock Band)
Another local rock band, based in Helston Cornwall, who have become our rock brothers in arms! If High Voltage are well known for covering the classic rock, then these guys carry on from where we finish! Playing comtemporary and modern rock covers, their set features songs by such great bands as Incubus, Foo Fighters, Rage Against The Machine, Pearl Jam, Papa Roach, Audioslave plus the odd older song thrown in for good measure. In March 2013 Bobby's Helmet and High Voltage hosted the first Blue ANchor Charity Rock Night, raising £600 which was evenly split between the Help for Heroes and Brain Tunour Research UK charities. With the originally intention of it being a one off, it proved to be such a great success that we have decided to make it an annual bridging the gap between the Christmas/NYE celebrations and the 3 day Helstonbury Music Festival which is held in July each year. If you haven't seen them yet, check out there website for a list of upcoming gigs and check them out.
