Spring at the Steamboat

The nights are getting lighter, the weather is getting better, sort of (well, it hopefully will soon), and gigs at The Steamboat just keep coming!

This Friday (11th) we have an unbelievable line up for you and it’s FREE ENTRY! Five superb bands will be taking the stage from 8pm. Claws, The Brackish Edge, SuperGlu, Horse Party & Dingus Khan. Not bad at all!!

More live music on Saturday night, Jazz lunch on Sunday from 2pm till 5pm, immediately followed by Wax on the Waterfront until 9pm completes what is sure to be a mega weekend of live bands and vinyl.

This months classic movie night we’ll be showing the Guy Richie film Snatch. So why not head down here for a belly filling chilli cheese jumbo hotdog & chips, some popcorn and a few beers and watch the film on our big screen.

We’ve got a one off Friday night quiz this month. The wonderful people at our favourite charity, Krissy & Friends, will be hosting a music quiz on the 18th with booze to be won, bragging rights to be had and booby prizes to be avoided! It promises to be a damn good laugh.

To finish off this month we have a music packed Easter weekend. Albion Mills will be back at The Steamboat on Good Friday from 9pm with great tunes from the ‘golden age’ of music – 1966 – 1974. Our good friends The East Town Pirates will be playing their first gig of the year in Ipswich, supported by High Wycombe punk band The Xtraverts! Fancy something a bit more chilled out? Then we have an Easter Sunday Jazz lunch from 2pm with La Fontaine Ensemble. We’ll be serving tasty food and our usual varied selection of great local and national ales and ciders all afternoon.

We have more huge gigs and events coming up in April and into the summer! We’re also converting the barn in the beer garden to house an outside bar with pizza oven, BBQ and outdoor stage!

Oh and just a reminder of our 2nd birthday celebration on Sunday 29th May. Purple Rain, the amazing Prince tribute band will be playing with a DJ from 8pm ’til late. Tickets are now on sales from the pub or Out of Time Records, £7 per ticket.
