PUB bosses in Largs say they are anticipating one of their busiest days of the year as locals prepare for some extended new year festivities

January 2 is traditionally one of the most popular in the calendar for Largs restaurants, pubs and bars.

This year is set to be no different with live music planned throughout the town all day at a string of venues.

Lounge, Room, The Waterside, Drouthy Neebors, J.G Sharps, The George, Three Reasons and Macaulays all have entertainment lined up for revellers.

Lounge will offer non stop live music all day, with music every hour on the hour, starting with regular performer Rebecca Madden at 2pm.

Following her performance will be Alan Mckenzie at 3pm, with some classic hits and ballads.

Next up will be international star Little Fire at 4pm, who has performed in venues across the world - as well as becoming the first person in history to record in Burns Cottage.

Following them will be Drew Galt and Friends, The Howie Trio, Ryan McClucky and Mark Mclean at 9pm.

Rounding off Lounge's live music at 10pm will be The Oldest Swingers in Town before the club room kicks into action with DJ Alan taking the party in to the early hours.

The Waterside is welcoming some regulars to perform and help them celebrate the beginning of the year.

Their hugely popular Elvis tribute act, pictured, will perform a three-hour set of the King's hits.

Escapade will take to the stage straight after, led by experienced frontman Rab Reilly until 10pm.

The George was standing room only last year, with people sitting on the stairs to get a piece of the action.

This year they will have the same performer, Mr Onkel, playing everything from jazz to pop, followed by a disco.

Room has a day full of live music with some regular faces making an appearance.

Rachel Montgomerie, who closed Largs Live this year, will kick off the entertainment at 2pm

The Howie Trio will have their first performance of the day, as will Ryan McClucky and Mark McLean before they head of to Lounge to play again.

JG Sharps will see regulars Chris and Lyll play, as well as Papa Booch and the Amigos, followed by Crisis.

Macaulays are also getting involved with McAuley performing from 3pm to 6pm, before handing the mic to the public for some karaoke.

The Three Reasons will offer a day of live music, starting at 2.30pm with Sticks Diamond.

Drouthy Neebors will also have a day of live music to keep punters entertained.
