Welcome to Ipswich CMC Rocks!

It’s CMC Rocks next month when 20,000+ country music fans come to Ipswich for the best round-up of country music anywhere right now.

In honour of the stellar line-up of musicians and the fans in town for CMC Rocks – along with the good folk making this annual sold-out blockbuster happen – we’ve put together a handy list of breakfast options and matched each one with a song by a CMC Rocks artist. Welcome to town y’all!

Phat Boyz Smoke House and Kitchen

Dancing Bean Specialty Roasters

Dancing Bean coffee

The breakfast: It’s all about the coffee here at Dancing Bean Specialty Roasters. So we would be pairing the Old Sea Dog, coffee and American Whisky infusion – made on beans freshly roasted out the back in this converted warehouse, with anything from the menu. Or maybe a sweet treat from the cabinet.

The song: Whiskey Glasses Song by Morgan Wallen (USA), we’ll have one more whiskey coffee thanks!

The breakfast: Grazing by the pool at Homage restaurant at Spicers Hidden Vale.

The song: More than perfect by Brittney Spencer (USA). Because the idea of lingering by that lovely pool and maybe booking one of those hillside heritage cottages, is more than perfect…
