1 weekend, 3 gigs: Taunton, Glastonbury and Hambridge for OxJam and Halloween

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!

Thank you Bocabar!

Bocabar 6th June bands poster v2Had a blast last night at the Bocabar in Glastonbury rockin’ it with two other superb bands – Howlin Lord and John D Revelator. If ever you get a chance to see these guys then you should take it. Can’t wait to do it again sometime.

And thanks to the crowd who were an awesome snake percussion/slide whistle section.We took a bit of video which we will try and upload for sharing at some point.

Next show for us is at The Bear Inn in Weston Super Mare Saturday July 4th. We’ve heard lots of good things about this place and have been looking forward to our debut there for sometime. May get a chance to build a few sandcastles too. Best pack the bucket and spade.

See you down the front!

Photos from Oxjam 2014: Bath / Glastonbury & Street

We had lots of fun taking part in Oxjam this year, shaking our snakes in both The Bell Inn and Belushis in Bath as well as at the Bocabar in Glastonbury. Hats off to the organisers, performers and everyone else involved in raising a shed load of money for a great cause. Glastonbury & Street’s event raised over £1600 and Bath’s grand total is over £3000!

An added bonus was getting these rockin’ photos from the event photographers!
