Snakes abroad!: The Deep South and Africa! (…sort of)

Two chances for you to come and get your fix of snakey action this weekend.

First up, on Friday we shall be charting a course south of the border through bandit country to Bridport’s The Ropemakers in deepest Dorset. This venue has reputation for its excellent gigs so we’ve been looking forward to this for sometime. Bring. It. On.

Then on Saturday, if you didn’t get an invite to the Royal Wedding (or, if like us you turned down the invitation ‘cos they won’t have proper cider there) then we’ll be playing in Stoke St Gregory at the 2018 African Somerset ‘Feastival’ with Hot Braai and Cold Scrumpy. (OK, we’re not sure what braai is, but we’re looking forward to finding out). It promises games, bbq, cider and camping. We’re in!

Somerset Day! Snakes live @The Street Inn, Street

This weekend the town of Street will be celebrating “Somerset Day” and we’ll be doing our bit at the Street Inn on Saturday evening with plenty of songs about cider, apples and the west country and the usual burrow-hillbilly hi-jinks!

As well as a live set, we’ll also be playing a vinyl DJ set to keep you grooving into the wee hours (expect some Wurzels).

Snakes alive! Bridgwater, Pilton Party Auditions and more…

You wait all year for a chance to see The Legendary snakeSNAKEsnake live, then two come along in one weekend! Both gigs will be full-strength, awesome foursome shows and we’re really excited about playing live again after our hiatus in the studio.

This Friday (13th April) we will be playing at The Fountain in Bridgwater. It’s our first time at this venue, but it looks great –  situated right on the River Parrett with regular chilli nights – so that’s two songs on the set list straight away. Should be a cracker.

Then on Saturday (14th) will be playing at round 3 of the Pilton Party auditions at Pilton Working Men’s Club. Please come along and show your support!

Image may contain: textFollowing these two shows we have a few more coming over the next couple of months around the shire, taking in Frome, Street, Barton St David and Stoke St Gregory and we will be adding more soon. Plenty of chances to come out and shake your snake.

Snake news: coming out of hibernation…

Hello SnakefansSs
A quick note to let y’all know what we’ve been up to of late and a few dates we have coming up.
As well as embedding our new Snake No.4 Gerry on double bass, over the last few weeks we snakes have been busy beavering away in Gerry’s mancave working on our next album.

As you can see from the pics, we are recording straight to analogue/reel to reel for a bit of vintage (luddite?) warmth and so far it is sounding delicious. We’re taking our time to get it right and we ‘re looking forward to sharing it with you soon.
In the meantime, you’ll be able to hear the new material, along with old favourites at one of our upcoming live shows in the next couple of months.

  • Saturday 14th: Pilton Party (Auditions), Pilton.


  • Saturday 12th: Street Inn, Street.
  • Saturday 19th: “Africa Somerset” Event, Stoke St Gregory
  • Saturday 26th: The Barton Inn, Barton St David

The Railway Inn Sunday Sessions

We’re very pleased to be playing The Final Sunday Session of the year at The Railway Inn this coming weekend.

Join us, The Legendary snakeSNAKEsnake, with David 9 Lunas and Tolly Snell as we celebrate a fine year of Sunday sessions.

It’s Bank Holiday Sunday, so that’s means it’s your national duty by Royal proclamation to “lead in extending British holidays over a longer summer period” and spend an extra afternoon in a beer garden daytime-drinking in what is guaranteed to be sunny British weather.

As well as live music, good beer and good company there will also be an all you can eat BBQ for £8! Sounds perfect.

See you down the front!

Friday 4th August: The Crown Inn, Pilton.

This Friday (4th August) The Legendary snakeSNAKEsnake will be bringing our special brand of cowpunk tomfoolery back for a third time to The Crown Inn at Pilton. Each time has been a blast and we’re sure this will be too. Especially since we shall be there for the first time with our new man on the Double Bass, Gerry. If the weather’s good there’ll be a BBQ in their lovely beer garden. (And if not there’s plenty of good food and drink inside for all).


Bring your drinkin’ money and your dancin’ shoes.

See you down the front!



PS – thanks to all at the Lowland Games last weekend. As ever – great fun. We’ve got a few pics and video somewhere which we’ll share once we’re all cleaned up/dried out. Let’s do it again next year, shall we? ;0)
