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 last night’s gig at CICCIC in Taunton was an intimate and beautiful thing. We had the slightly embarrassing task of trying to follow the amazing talents of two superb singer songwriters Lee Rahn and Sophie Hosken-Taylor. We’re sure that these guys are destined for big things so if you get a chance see them while you can.

We were concerned how our brand of ramshackle hill-billy would folow such delicate craftmanship. But fortunately, enough people in Taunton decided that Strictly X Factor and/or the Rugby wasn’t enough to stay at home and came out to join in on rhythm section. (What Jeremy Corbyn would probably call ‘The People’s Percussion’) and it turned into a lovely evening.

All in all, a good time was had, met some great people and I’m sure we’ll be back.

(And we now know that CICCIC is Kick Kick. Not sick sick.).

PS: We’ll be back again in Taunton soon for OxJam at The White Hart on October 30. And I think there are already plans afoot to come back to the CIC again soon
