New gigs, new songs, new snake!

Greetings! As The Legendary snakeSNAKEsnake slide out of hibernation we have some exciting news to share.

New Snake – When 3 become 4!

Firstly, we’d like to welcome our new double bassist, Gerry to the fold. Gerry has stacks of experience and a beautiful instrument (ahem) and has made himself very much at home among us, adding some much needed low-frequency muscle to our sound. It’s sounding great in rehearsals and we can’t wait to bring our ‘awesome foursome’ to the live shows.

New Shows

Over the coming months we’ll be returning to many of our favourite venues and festivals as well as new destinations. Check out the listings on the side bar. And there are plenty more in the pipeline so keep checking back. First up is April 7th in Bristol at the lovely Kingsdown Winevaults.

New songs

In between getting Gerry up to speed on our existing material we’ve also been adding some new songs which we’re looking forward to sharing with you all and there are plenty more in progress…

New found superstardom!

Er, OK, not quite. But in recent months we’ve made our way to the top spot of the local folk charts on Reverbnation and No. 42 nationally!
We’re not really quite sure how this has happened, or if we really deserve it, but hey, we’re gonna run with it. And OK, granted, the Bath Folk charts maybe quite niche, but it’s a start. So come check out our reverbnation profile, listen to some songs, watch some videos. Who knows where it could end?

Hibernation

The band are taking some time out from the live scene to work on new material for our second album.
But we will be back playing live early summer with several festival dates already on the calendar. So watch this space…

Until then, keep it snakey

Snakey Claus is Comin’ To Town!

Big thanks to everyone who have been along to our recent Christmas shows for making them so much fun. (A special mention goes to our first foray into Wellington – who knew a wet Wednesday would be so wild. On a ‘school night’ too!).

This Friday (16th) sees our final show of the year, back to one of our favourite venues: Hawthorns in Glastonbury. Guaranteed always a good night and this time our Snakey Santa sack is bursting with festive surprises.
Prior to that, Kev and Chris will be live on Glastonbury FM on Thursday to get you in the mood.
In the meantime, maybe this will…

Snakey Christmas is a comin’

So when does Christmas start for you?

Your 1st advent calendar chocolate? When you first hear Stop The Cavalry in a shop? The premiere of the John Lewis Xmas TV ad? Town centre Christmas lights switch on? When Lidl start stocking mince pies (August)? When they show Ghostbusters on TV?

Well, we can tell you that this year it officially begins THIS Saturday November 26th at Glastonbury Frost Fayre where The Legendary snakeSNAKEsnake will be premiering their festive set on the Glastonbury Fringe stage (outside Hawthorns) alongside many other musical treats.

This’ll be the first in a series of special Christmas shows (we’re not sure if it’s quite enough to call a ‘tour’) where we’ll be playing some special festive material we’ve been working on as well as the usual snakey party favourites to get you in the mood.

We’ll be returning to some of our favourite venues as well as making a debut at The Green dragon in Wellington. Here are the dates:

Saturday 26th November: Fringe Stage, Frost Fayre, Glastonbury

Saturday 3rd December: Private Party, South Petherton

Wednesday 7th December: The Green Dragon, Wellington

Friday 9th December: The Crown Inn, Pilton

Friday 16th December: Hawthorns, Glastonbury

Saturday 14h January: Wassail! The Lamb & Lion, Hambridge.

We look forward to seeing you for a mulled cider/eggnog/punch and mince pie – filled sing and dance.

See you down the front.

(PS. The correct answer is Ghostbusters.)

Our 3rd show in 2 days will see us return to the scene of many great nights, The lamb and Lion. Having played wassails and Halloween (as well as the former landlady’s birthday party) there – we know there is fun to be had.

As well as the usual cider fuelled hi-jinks, this year the bar will be serving special ‘snakeSNAKEsnake’ drinks. What are they? You’ll have to come to find out!

See you down the front!
