Tubesnake Invited To Stormin’ 2016

29 June, 2016 | Tubesnake News

Tonight we received an email inviting us to play Stormin’ The Castle 2016 on Saturday 3rd September. We’re over the moon and of course we accepted immediately. Even better, we have been told we’ll probably be on the Main Stage. Excellent news! The event takes place at Witton Castle, Witton-le-Wear, Co. Durham, DL14 0DE. Further […]

Ring Out The Old

31 December, 2015 | Tubesnake News

Saturday 19th December saw us finish our last gig of 2015. Despite the intermittent lashing down of rain outside it was more than cosy inside with a good turnout at The Red Lion in Coxhoe. You really do have to squeeze yourself in with a shoehorn at this venue but it makes for a great […]

Tubesnake Tenth Line-Up Sorted As Martin Craggs Joins The Band

21 April, 2014 | Tubesnake News

Over the last few weeks our advertisement for a full time guitarist drew interest from around a dozen players and led to a couple of house meets and a four song audition at our gig at The Angel in Durham on Saturday 22nd March. Our dep guitarist, Stuart Dawson, stood down at the start of […]

Decision Made As Tom Flies The Nest

2 March, 2014 | Tubesnake News

Having spotted gig posters in the pub window it still took us quite a while to sort this gig out, but with the help of some of our friends in the know who live North of The Tyne, we eventually managed to get a booking at this venue. Late this Sunday afternoon we played at […]

Full Time Guitar Dep Stuart Dawson Boards The Tubesnake Train

1 February, 2014 | Tubesnake News

January has been a pretty quiet month for us with just two dates in the diary. We were happy to leave it that way so we had plenty of breathing space to consider the auditions we held for a guitar dep to take us through the next two or three months. We do have a […]

Dep Auditions Taking Place

1 January, 2014 | Tubesnake News

Happy New Year Everyone. It’s early days yet as far as our guitarist Tom’s future plans are concerned but it’s looking like he’s gonna be out of the country longer than a month, maybe two or three months in fact. Tony Cawson and Steve Gilroy are still helping us out on guitar. Tony has just […]

Deps Recalled As Tom Flies Off Again To Rock The Casbah

16 December, 2013 | Tubesnake News

After some deliberation, our guitarist Tom Atkinson boarded a plane today to begin another bout of gigs abroad. This time he’s starting in Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the United Arab Emirates. We say “starting” since we are unsure when, or if, he will be coming back. We’ll have to wait and see. We […]

Summer’s Almost Gone

24 August, 2013 | Tubesnake News

That was a damned good break from gigging which, for me (Lenny), included a couple of days camping near Haltwhistle, Northumberland followed by three days to get my act together before flying off to Portugal. Never been before but loved it. Spent a week hanging out with some mates in a top notch villa in […]

Johnny Guitar Deps Tony Cawson & Steve Gilroy

14 June, 2013 | Tubesnake News

Guitarist Tom has been gigging in Eilat in Southern Israel this last month so we’ve just completed six gigs with guitar deps. We’d just like to say thanks to Tony Cawson for covering The Market Tavern, Chester-le-Street and The Barley Mow, Birtley. Guitarist Tony is actually one of the founder members of Tubesnake and played […]

Word Of Mouth

20 May, 2013 | Tubesnake News

Many thanks to those of you who put a word in for us at The Pemberton Arms in Cold Hesledon, Seaham on Friday night. Of course, we weren’t gigging there that night, but your recommendations to book Tubesnake have resulted in me receiving a call tonight from Anthony who books the bands. We now have […]

Tom Is Leaving On A Jet Plane

14 May, 2013 | Tubesnake News

Sounds rather interesting! Guitarist Tom is leaving the UK to play a month’s worth of nightly gigs in a hotel in Eilat, Israel, starting today and returning on the 14th June. That should at least put a bit of colour in his cheeks. Tom kept us in the loop so we’ve had time to plan […]

It Was Twenty Years Ago Today

12 September, 2012 | Tubesnake News

Saturday 12th September 1992 saw the original 5-piece line-up of Tubesnake take to the stage for the first time in front of a live audience at The Lambton Hounds in Pity Me, Durham. Fronting the band then, and still now, was Lenny Mustarde, the only original member left in the band. That first line-up consisted […]

Five

1 September, 2012 | Tubesnake News

It’s five years today since our website was launched on 1st September 2007. Eternally grateful to good friend and web-guru Dan Mullen for doing all the original set up of the site and for teaching me the skills needed to continue to manage it. 2007 also saw the ninth line-up change for Tubesnake when guitarist […]

First Of May

1 May, 2011 | Tubesnake News

Tonight, Sunday 1st May 2011, we’re playing at The Stables Bar, in the grounds of Beamish Hall. Been a great day so far with all this sun and blue sky but if you fancy rounding it off with a bit of Tubesnake Boogie in some very impressive surroundings then we’ll see ya later. Gig starts […]

Tubesnake Step Out For Brothel Creepers At The Clarendon

11 April, 2011 | Tubesnake News

Our planned gig at The Clarendon in Sunderland on Sunday, 17th April 2011 has had to be cancelled due to Chris on bass receiving rather a large number of stitches in one of his playing hands. Tom, from Tubesbake, has filled the gap with his other band, The Brothel Creepers. They play an eclectic mix […]

Expresso Bongo

27 January, 2011 | Tubesnake News

Due to Woody undergoing treatment on one of his drumming arms, tomorrow’s gig at The Three Tuns, Friday 28th January 2011, will see Waka (The Glammed) taking the stage as our stand-in drummer for the night. This is a role he’s helped us out with on quite a number of occasions now so business as […]
