The Legendary snakeSNAKEsnake will be playing three times this coming weekend, raising money for OxJam and entertaining folk with some hill-billy halloween hijinks:
- Friday evening: The White Hart in Taunton,
- Saturday afternoon: Bocabar in Glastonbury,
- Saturday evening: The Lamb and Lion, Hambridge
Friday 30th October we will be headlining at The White Hart, Taunton, for the penultimate leg of OxJam in Somerset. We’ll be on at 10.30, following a night of great music by other local acts. For more info, visit the Facebook event page.
Then on Saturday, we’re putting on our Halloween outfits, bringing out the dodgy Halloween cover-song-medleys and playing at the final OxJam event at Bocabar in Glastonbury. This event has been in the local press who as you can see are never shy of an eye-grabbing headline to try to steal some kudos from other, bigger, cooler, national events such as film premieres and spies. But we don’t need Daniel Craig as we have our own (Matt) Bond, along with a host of fantastic acts, including Missy Edwards, formerly of Missart and culminating with Nick Parker & The False Alarms.
The Legendary snakeSNAKEsnake will be playing mid afternoon (3pm ish) to allow time to get over to The Lamb and Lion to play into the night at their Fright NIght.
The last time we played at The Lamb and Lion was their Wassail. It was a crackin’ night and we’ve been longing to get back since. Proper farmhouse scrumpy, great food and they’ll be putting on special ‘spooky cocktails’.
So there you have it. 3 opportunities to get dressed up, get out, get drinking and dancing and raise some money for a good cause too. What’s stopping you? Best start making your fancy dress costume, innit?
See you down the front!
Well done to all who came and helped make OxJam at The King Arthur a success.
In 2014 the at Oxjam King Arthur raised £164. After adding up all the pennies, foreign coins, old lottery tickets, micro sd cards and other dodgy material. this year we smashed it by raising £274.01!
Unfortunately, on the night a last minute family emergency meant that we were down to 2 men and had to do some quick thinking but managed to get something together and helped to out part. And we doff our caps to all the other amazing musicians who donated their time and talent for free: UKID, TheEntangledband, Henry Wacey, Paul O’Reilly for sound engineering even though he was feeling unwell, The King Arthur for hosting, Phoenix Somerset, GFM and Central Somerset Gazette for their help to promote the event and everyone who came to support the event and donated to Oxfam. Especially big well-done to Missy Edwards who not only masterminded the whole event but also made a fantastic post-Missart live debut. Lots of pictures and video from the night are circulating Facebook and we’ll have some to upload here soon.
We’ll also be playing at two further OxJam Somerset events at the end of the month: Friday 30th at The White Hart in Taunton and 31st at Glastonbury Bocabar (hopefully with all 3 of us this time). To find out more about Oxjam look on www.phoenixsomerset.org.uk.
If you missed our live session on Glastonbury FM last week, you can listen again here.
We went on to promote last week’s OxJam show at The King Arthur with Missy Edwards and played 3 songs: shakeSHAKEshake, The Ballad of David Van Day and Whoowee! We’re on from about 26-50mins.
There’s loads of music from other local bands on there too. Thursday Live is a weekly showcase of local music and if you haven’t checked it out already then you should. Big thanks to Ian Liversidge for having us on and making us feel at home. We look forward to popping in again soon.
We can now confirm some new live dates.
