Resurrection Shuffle

4 April, 2010 | Tubesnake Gigs

Easter Sunday, 4th April 2010 at The Lambton Hounds, Pity Me, Durham. Our 5 o’clock start was delayed til 5.30pm as Tom and Woody raided a nearby mate’s garage to retrieve a replacement guitar amp after Tom’s gave up the ghost during the soundcheck. This allowed a few more punters to assemble and empowered the […]

Starship Troopers

28 February, 2010 | Tubesnake Gigs

Sunday afternoon, 28th February 2010, The Star Inn, Newcastle. Despite the on-off pouring rain outside, the troops still rallied to this gig. Thanks to everyone who made the effort and turned up, not least to bods from as far away as Stanhope, Crook and Durham. The place was packed and the atmosphere electric. Excellent crowd! […]


20 February, 2010 | Tubesnake Gigs

The Whitburn Lodge, Whitburn, Saturday 20th February 2010. Our second gig at The Lodge and nice to see a few familiar faces from the Sunderland area and a whole bunch who probably hadn’t caught the band before. Thanks to Kenny for once again dazzling us all with his dancing (never misses a Doors track) and […]

Anything But Run Of The Mill

20 December, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

The Mill House, Birtley. Sunday 20th December 2009. Quiet as hell when we first turned up but then patrons, Carl & Deanne McDonald, brought the girls from their other pub just around the corner, The Ship Inn. It was their staff night out and they were dressed to the hilt. As our set played on, […]

Tubesnake Star In Christmas Stable

18 December, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

Friday 18th December 2009. Our first gig in The Stables Pub & Brewery which is set in the grounds of Beamish Hall, near Stanley. Opened in May 2009 as a bar-restaurant with its’ own brewery, it also hosts live bands every Friday night and has done for a few months now. Hell of a setting […]

The Prettiest Star

29 November, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

The Star Inn, Newcastle, Sunday 29th November 2009. We’ve already played a couple of Saturday nights at this pub over the last year or so but this was our first Sunday afternoon slot which kicked off at 4pm. It’s a really neat venue at the bottom of Westgate Road, directly opposite The O2 Academy, and […]

Hole Lotta Love

13 November, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

Friday 13th November, 2009 at The New Inn, Hetton-le-Hole. This was a new venue to us and despite the Tsunami outside it turned out to be well worth the visit. It was a class night with an audience that ranged from 18 to much older. We thought we’d lose a few of the pretty youth […]

La Oficina

6 November, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

The Office, South Shields, Friday 6th November 2009. After playing here so many times in the past it seemed unbelievable that we hadn’t played this venue since September 2006. Woody missed it and we had Waka, from The Glammed, standing in for him on the drums. Not a massive audience, but a keen one, and […]

Driving Miss Daisy

30 October, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

The Daisy Hill, Sacriston, Friday 30th October 2009. Just a word to say thanks to everyone who made the effort and turned up to the Daisy Hill tonight. First Tubesnake gig for almost three weeks and a damned good night. The crowd were behind us from song one. As well as the regulars, would like […]

22 August, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

The Masons Arms, Easington Village on Saturday 22nd August 2009. We ain’t played here since June last year and it was good to be back. This gig was like Masons Arms gigs of old with basically a full house and a tremendous crowd. Waka stood in on drums and managed to put a hole in […]

Red Star Delivers

31 July, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

Friday 31st July 2009 at The Red Star, Seaham. This is a new venue on the circuit and I believe we were only the third band to play there on their new Friday Rock Night slot. Consequently, there weren’t many punters but those who attended gave us a very enthusiastic reception. In our opinion the […]

Buffalo Stance

10 July, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

Excellent night at Buffalos Rock Night at The Buffs Social Club in Houghton-le-Spring, Friday 10th July 2009. We had a great crowd who applauded well, made a lot of supportive noise and put the dance floor to good use. This gig exceeded all our expectations since the turn-out and audience response far surpassed our experiences […]

Independance Day

4 July, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

The Egypt Cottage, Newcastle, Saturday 4th July 2009. Another great gig with our favourite stand-in drummer, Waka. We love this venue but whispers of its’ impending closure are rife! … Lenny

Fire & Brimstone

20 June, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

Thanks to all the peeps and freaks who made our gig at The Lambton Hounds, Pity Me, on Saturday 20th June 2009 a memorable evening. A great crowd which included mega party animals who danced like demons, fell over, flashed lingerie and feminine body parts (if you were lucky enough to be in the right […]

Laid At The Mill House

14 June, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

Sunday 14th June 2009 at The Mill House, Birtley. Rearranged the set and did the first half acoustic, second half full electric. Made a nice change for a Sunday night (the only Sunday night we still do) at a venue which has moved from a full-on party ambience in years gone by to a more […]

La Vuelta De Las Serpientes (The Return)

8 June, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

Two excellent gigs over the weekend after four weeks off due to holidays which found Chris cruisin’ the Caribbean and me doing the Spanish stroll in Calpe, about an hour from Alicante. Cracking gig at Crook F.C. on Saturday 6th June and an even more intense gig at The Clarendon in Sunderland at 5pm on […]

Sand Dancing Days

9 May, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

Another first time venue for us at Annie McCarthy’s, South Shields, Saturday 9th May 2009. Really enjoyed this gig in my home town, I was born and lived in Shields ’til aged 9 when we moved to Durham. My wider family were there for years after so I remained a constant visitor and my dad, […]
