Saturday 14th January: Wassail! Wassail! All over the town!

Need something to lift those January blues? Dr snakeSNAKEsnake has just the prescription: cider, music and dancing!

We are very pleased to be invited back for a third time to The Lamb and Lion in Hambridge to perform at their wassailing event.

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!




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!


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!


Well Done, Wassailers of Hambridge!

That was a tip-top bit of wassailing last Saturday at the lovely Lamb and Lion in Hambridge. It felt rather special to be at the newly refurbished pub’s inaugural wassail and to be the first to sing to that lovely new sapling. Here’s hoping it provides plenty of cider apples for generations to home. We’re looking forward to coming back to enjoy its harvest.


Chris has promised that next year he’ll dress like this
