Rugby, quizzes and live music

This month we’re all a bit excited about the Rugby.  No matter which team you support you have to admit for rugby fans the Six Nations is a big deal!  We’ll be showing Wales vs England here on Saturday 11th from 4.50pm.

This month we have all our regular monthly favourites.  You can test your wits against your friends or colleagues at the Quiz Night on either Tuesday 14th or Tuesday 28th.  Entry is only £2.50.  We’ve got some great gigs coming up this month (more on that in a moment) but if you want some slightly gentler music then you’re welcome to join us for Folk at the Boat on Thursday 23rd.  We also have an acoustic music night on Tuesday 21st.

As you probably know we’re proud of our food here at The Steamboat, and on Sunday 12th and Sunday 26th we’ll be hosting our popular Jazz lunches.  On Sunday 12th music comes from the brilliant Gipping Valley Stompers, and on Sunday 26th we have the great La Fontaine Ensemble providing the tunes.  Food is served from noon and the music starts around 2pm.

If you like your music a little (lot) louder then you might enjoy the gig we’ve got lined up on Friday 24th.  Live on stage we’ve got a new local band making their Ipswich debut – Telefünken.  Telefünken are made of of members of local ‘legends’ like The Ballsitics, ZEEB?, These Are End Times and Uncle Black.  Also playing that night are Bono and Paper Champ.

On Sunday 26th the mighty French band Burning Lady are stopping off here as a part of their tour.  Support on the night comes from local nautical heroes East Town Pirates and Smart Alex.

And that just about wraps up what’s going to be another great month here at The Steamboat Tavern.  See you soon!
