Boston Original Bands Initiative secures new venue in Queen Of Spades’ function room to host monthly music gigs

A music organisation has secured a new venue for its monthly gigs aimed at showcasing up-and-coming talent.

Boston Original Bands Initiative (BOBI) focuses on giving musicians the chance to perform while earning some cash to invigorate what it calls the “ailing grassroots music scene that seems to be hitting the whole of the UK at the moment.”

The Queen of Spades’ function room on Wellington Road has been offered by landlord Andrew Dodd to continue the success of the group’s past gigs at The Eagle on West Street.

A spokesperson for BOBI said the function room is: “A perfect setting, not too far from the town centre with its own entrance, toilets and bar offering a variety of drinks and food.”

BOBI welcomes all genres of music to participate in the monthly gigs as well as solo artists and young musicians, however, cover bands, tributes and karaoke acts are not accepted.

First up will be Lincoln-based ska/punk band Suburban Toys, Type Forty, a synth/guitar band from Sleaford, Coup De Tete, an electric ukulele-led band from Peterborough and Boston-based youngsters Newsom at 7.30pm on Saturday, March 30

Tickets can be purchased for £5 on the door or £5.49 online here, of which 10% goes to each band plus an extra £25.
