Saturday 1st October: The Lamb & Lion, Hambridge

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!




How to make your own ‘snakeSNAKEsnake’ drink!

We’re often asked about the origin of our name. So here’s a handy video tutorial recorded after our set at Farmfest 2016 on how to make your very own snakeSNAKEsnake.

This Saturday- Cider and Music Festival, Taunton.

Pre Glastonbury Festival Warm up? Father’s Day Treat? Just a good night out with dancing and cider?

Come and celebrate the best of the Westcountry this Saturday at CICCIC in Taunton. Good Music. Good Cider. Good Times.

Wassail!! Thanks Mike, Jayne and all at the Lamb and Lion for another brilliant night

Thanks Mike, Jayne and all the crowd at the Lamb and Lion, Hambridge for another brilliant night at this year’s wassail. Following the very chilly, but well attended ceremony outside, (including a crowd sing song and pouring of cider onto the tree), we all headed indoors for what turned out to be another top night at The Lamb and Lion, with plenty of cider, shouting, crowd particpation and a snakey debut from the landlady herself on stage!

Thanks to Georgina who took these pics of the outside bit. You can almost see the icicles.

And thanks once again Lamb and Lion folk, we’ll be back very soon!


Our song on ‘The Cider Hunters’ documentary

Our song ‘shakeSHAKEshake’ is set to be featured on a new TV show! And it looks bloomin’ marvelous!

Level Films are working with our old friend, (occasional band photographer) and world renown cider expert Bill Bradshaw on a new TV Series called The Cider Hunters.

Here’s a promo:

Chillifest love

What a superb weekend at Upton Cheyney Chilli fest. After a year away it was great to be back.

We met so many cool people and saw so much cool stuff: Sicknote Steve and his home made double neck guitar/portable drinks cabinet, Sue Fairy’s hospitality and flaming washing machine, Zeus the Dog, Steve Wurzel‘s songs about cider and cheese (and cider), zebra and python burgers and chilli everything. And most of all the many members of the public who stopped by, watched and joined in with our musical nonsense. And thanks to Harry the Ukeleleguywemetinthepubthenightbefore who deputied for Chris on Sunday. Biggest thanks to Alex Chilli for having back again.

We’ve already had a few pix and vids posted to the facebook page, so if you were one of the many with your camera pointing at the weirdos playing music next to the pigsty, feel free to share the evidence. We think we spotted an official event photographer going round to so if those pics appear we’ll share them on here too if we can.

Thanks again all – hope to see you next year when we’ll do it all again.



Upton Cheyney Chilli Festival

We are thrilled to be returning for a THIRD time to the fantastic Upton Cheyney Chilli Festival.

Since we last went, it’s been expanded to a 2 day event and added an extra focus upon cider.

“Voted the best UK Chilli Festival of 2014 and the only chilli festival actually held on a chilli farm its easy to see why we are the UK’s favourite”

There’s a great line-up of musicians over the weekend (including some bright young wannabes called The Wurzels) as well as all manner of fun and frolics and AL things chilli including the infamous Chilli Eating Competition.

And yes, there is Chilli Cider.

Snake News and Upcoming Live Dates

It’s been a quieter couple of weeks as us snakes have been on our holidays and spending a bit of time with the families. But the Snake-Wagon will be rolling out again this weekend for two very exciting looking shows.


First up, we’ll be supporting the fantastic Skimmity Hitchers at Camping Be Cider Seaside.

(See poster for details).

Beach, BBQ, Cider, Camping and Kickass Live Music. Frankly, if that doesn’t look like the best way to spend your weekend then there’s something wrong with you.

NB: Sadly, owing to other commitments, Our Ben (the good-looking, musically-talented one) can’t make it – so it’ll just be a special, stripped down ‘Snake Lite’. (In fact, We may be able to persuade Chris to actually strip down naked if he gets enough cider in him). Rest assured, we’ll be snakin’ extra hard to make up for it. And if you haven’t seen the Skimmity Boys before  you are in for a real treat. Get yerselves down there!

Then on Sunday the full 3 Snake line-up will be at the wonderful Satinafield festival near Cheddar.

This is one we’ve been looking forward to for a while. We’re Satinafield virgins but have heard great things about this festival and it has a stonking line-up (Land of Giants on Saturday! We’ll be there on Sunday afternoon, helping revelers transition from Saturday-night-hangover to No-work-on-Monday jollification.

Looking further ahead still, there’s the Upton Cheyney Chilli-Fest (with The Wurzels) and in October a string of dates across Somerset for OxJam – more on these to follow.

PS: Big apologies to the good folk of West Pennard who had been looking forward to us playing at The Red Lion earlier in the month. Due to an almighty balls up we had to postpone and we are currently negotiating a new date in September – watch this space!

That’s all for now
