GYMPIE is trialling a unique project to elevate the profile of local musicians and the Gympie music scene.

Soundcheck is a pilot event awarded funding through the Regional Arts Development Fund.

An initiative of Gympie Regional Council, the project aims to provide professional development and networking opportunities for established and emerging musicians, bands and performers across all genres.

Soundcheck has been funded for 10 months with monthly sessions at Nelson Reserve expected to build momentum.

This Saturday is Soundcheck's second session, which will kick off at 11am at the Soundshell.

Musicians are invited to put their name on a list to perform on the big stage, backed by professional musicians and a concert sound system.

"A part of the project focus will be to assist in raising the profile of the region's musical culture," co-ordinator Matt Allard said, adding that music industry and professional development advice would be on offer throughout the day.

"The project aims to cater for emerging and professional musicians regardless of instrument or genre and an international backline of session musicians are available onsite to provide support."

The Soundcheck Facebook page aims to encourage musicians to network and promote their upcoming performances online.
