Amazing. Yesterday’s “From The Heart” music all-dayer at Hawthorns raised £1300 for Freddy’s Fight for Life – an incredible achievement!

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.)
We’re very excited and proud to be taking part in this anti-austerity awareness and fundraiser “at The King Arthur in Glastonbury. “We shall Overcome” is an all-dayer for a great cause and with a stellar line up of local talent
This weekend The Legendary snakeSNAKEsnake will be returning to The Riflemans Arms in Glastonbury, where we played earlier in the year as part of Glastonbury calling. It was an absolute blast with people up and dancing from the off and we’ve been looking forward to getting back there.
As a special treat, this time not only will we be playing a live set, including some new material, we will also be sharing our record collection with you as we hit the decks. Yes, we will be delivering a vinyl DJ set too. Expect an eclectic mix of rockabilly, cowpunk, ska, country, spaghetti westerns, 60s Garage Punk and a load of other stuff. It set to be a scorcher of a weekend so come and join us for a drink and a boogie!
See you down the fornt.
In case you missed it, here’s a video recapping Glastonbury Calling in February. (We appear at about 50 secs). A great little round-up of all of the acts/bands that took part. Well done again to GFM’s Ian Liversidge for making it happen. Roll on next year!
Wow! Glastonbury Calling WAS brilliant! Loads of great bands, great crowds and a great atmosphere. We had a fab time playing our first gig at The Rifleman’s Arms to a fun crowd who were dancing, singing along and joining in on percussion from the off! But better than that we got to mix with friends and see loads of other top notch acts (special mentions for Missy Edwards and John D Revelator and Idles and September Son and …the list is too long! And a heap of money was raised for Glastonbury FM. Ace.
We’re busy making plans for our diaries next year and lining up lots of live dates as well as preparing new material. You’ll hear more about this all soon. But one thing you need to know about sooner is this: Glastonbury Calling.
Taking place on Saturday 27th February the event will see 30 bands taking over 4 venues across Glastonbury town. £10 will get you a wristband that will get in across all the venues all day. As you can see, there are loads of great bands playing, including our dear friends Missy Edwards and John D Revelators. £10 to see so much great music is an absolute bargain.
We were gutted to have to postpone our date at The Red Lion in West Pennard over the summer. It’s an iconic piece of rural pubbery. So much so, it featured in this year’s pre-world cup VisitEngland TV advert. And if you’ve ever walked that long trek from Glastonbury festival to Glastonbury town, you’re surely familiar with it.
But best things come to those that wait and we will be making up for lost time when we come to raise the roof this Saturday. Find out your dancing shoes and cider hat, the Snakes will entertaining the Lion this Saturday.
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.
