Hello, Ello, Hi there……. Welcome to the new Essex Rocks (Beta) website…… it’s the beta version as we’ll be changing some of the design (namely the background, the design of the posts and adding a sexy new logo). As you’ll see it’s all a bit basic at the moment but we’ll be working hard over the coming weeks to ‘Jazz’ it up! Meanwhile, take a read below…….. P.s – If there’s little sections that look a bit strange then you’ve got adblocker on, unblock us – we don’t use pop ups!
What we’re about: As well as our own events, we’ll be writing features, sharing videos and tracks from your favourite bands and generally reporting on the Essex (and beyond) music scene……..
What you can do: If you’re an eccentric millionaire you can give a shed load of money and we’ll run the website from the Bahamas – if not then maybe you can help us by:-
- Sharing our posts – simple, easy, costs you nothing and we’ll love you forever.
- Get Social with us…. follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc (we follow back)
- Come to our gigs! Come say hi, we’ll buy you a beer (maybe).
- Give us some feedback…… use the contact form or pop us an email.
