Preview: Steamhouse at Canvas

Are you ready to rock this Halloween? Dress up as your favourite rocker, alive or dead, and zombie-walk to Canvas on Poole Hill on Friday, October 27, for a very spooktacular Steamhouse night.

Steamhouse has been bringing air-guitar classics to the masses for more than three decades so are the perfect party team to bring an edge to fright night. We caught up with founder and DJ Jeff Kennan for all the behind-the-spooky-scenes info on the night’s event.

Less than 50 tickets remain online currently and door entry will be strictly limited to the first and best fancy dress; so buy today at canvasbournemouth.com and get your outfit sorted pronto.

Steamhouse first brought its unique night to Canvas in July. Prior to that, they sold out regular nights at Inferno and other top rock venues across Bournemouth and Boscombe.

“From my point of view (the first night) was a major success,” Jeff said. “From the way the club’s management looked after not only me but every aspect of the night to both the bands we chose, PV Rocks and Western Sand, and the crowd who turned up.

“After Western Sand finished their headline set I then took over to continue the night and everybody stayed and got involved with the atmosphere.”

Steamhouse don’t take themselves too seriously. Think air guitar and sing-a-long rock anthems.

“The Steamhouse music is, and always will be big commercial catchy rock anthems that everyone loves and wants to sing out loud. We also give you the chance to make complete fools of yourselves along with being able to make a fool of me, as I don’t take myself seriously. Plus, having customers that totally “get” what we are about.

“I am known for loving ACDC and have played Whole Lotta Rosie on every Steamhouse night that I’ve ever played. (But) it doesn’t really suit the Halloween theme, so for Halloween, my favourite anthem would have to be ACDC, Highway to Hell.”

They may have had their first night in the 1980s but the Steamhouse team have brought their brand bang up-to-date and the night will be broadcasted live by the Internet radio Station Chesil Radio – so if you are partying at home with the kids, you can join in the fun too.

Tickets cost from £5 and there will be deals on Jack Daniels, Motorhead ales and Steamhouse’s very own IPA.
