Sardines For Christmas

22 December, 2013 | Tubesnake Gigs

Teatime slot at The Free Trade Inn in Byker, Newcastle on Sunday 22nd December 2013. The spirit of Christmas was undoubtedly in the air today as what seemed like a never-ending stream of punters continued to squeeze themselves into this pretty small venue. It wasn’t long before the audience was packed in like a tin […]

Wham, Bam, Thank ya Ma’am!

24 November, 2013 | Tubesnake Gigs

“Wham!” Storming gig at The John Duck in Durham City on Friday 22nd November. Lots of ladies invading the stage and strutting their stuff. “Bam!” A short trip across town to sister pub The Angel on Saturday 23rd November for a blistering gig with a hyper audience and another well stocked dance floor. “Thank ya […]

Penny For Your Thoughts

3 November, 2013 | Tubesnake Gigs

Sunday afternoon, 3rd November 2013. Excellent! A pub that looks like a Rock Venue as soon as you step in the door. Welcome to The Penny Gill in Spennymoor. The walls are plastered with rock posters and there’s musical instruments and other paraphernalia hanging from the ceiling. A sound system literally “blasts” out rock tunes […]


13 September, 2013 | Tubesnake Gigs

Just back from another great “club” gig at Wheatley Hill Constitutional Club (The Conshies). A new venue to us and our fourth club gig out of our last five bookings. We’ve had good turn-outs over the last three weeks at Hetton Lyons Cricket Club in Hetton-le-Hole, Buffalos Rock Night at Houghton-le-Spring Comrades Club and St.Peter’s […]

Fancy Dancing

27 July, 2013 | Tubesnake Gigs

Tom’s been back a good few weeks now since his month away gigging in Israel and therefore was on guitar for this stomping gig at The Angel in Durham City tonight, Saturday 27th July 2013. Lots of ‘Fancy Dancing’ and photo opportunities with a great audience. Gimme Shelter (Stones), Creep (Radiohead) and Starman (Bowie) are […]

We Love Our Audience

10 July, 2012 | Tubesnake Gigs

Riding on the back of our 3-gig mini tour of Durham we travelled North at the end of June and into July to perform another 3-gig mini tour in the Gateshead/Newcastle area. We drew some excellent crowds at The Vic and The Three Tuns in Gateshead followed by a class Sunday afternoon gig at The […]

City Of Angels

2 June, 2012 | Tubesnake Gigs

As expected, a great gig at The Angel Inn, Durham City on Saturday 2nd June 2012. Our recent practice meant we had three new songs in the set. ‘God Save The Queen’, bit of a one-off for the forthcoming Queen’s Diamond Jubilee next weekend, ‘Bowie’s ‘The Man Who Sold The World’ and the classic, although […]

Buffalo Comrades

8 April, 2011 | Tubesnake Gigs

Buffalos Rock Night. We had a class gig at The Comrades Club, Houghton-le-Spring tonight, Friday 8th April 2011. The Rock Night has been re-sited to The Comrades from Buffs Social Club, also in Houghton, and has lost none of its’ appeal as a cracking night out. Thanks to the guy who joined us on stage […]

Big Jugs On Full Display

17 September, 2010 | Tubesnake Gigs

Friday 17th September 2010 at The Big Jug, Claypath, Durham City. Class night at a venue Tubesnake ain’t played for over ten years. In that dark and distant past the band line-up and the venue itself looked a tad different. Packed pub for the first half and a good sized audience was retained for the […]

Coming Up For Air

14 August, 2010 | Tubesnake Gigs

Saturday 14th August 2010. Our first visit to Bubbles in Ashington. Canny drive out since we’re from Durham and Crook but that passed in no time. Great feel to this venue with the blacked out stage in the corner adorned with a range of spot lights and appropriate framed rock shots hanging on all the […]

Dancing Dales

11 July, 2010 | Tubesnake Gigs

The Bonny Moorhen, Stanhope, Sunday 11th July 2010. Always a pleasure to do this gig seeing as we know half the town. Woody took the scenic route and we were set up with plenty of time to spare for a bit crack with the locals while The Doors album, LA Woman, played over our PA […]

Ship Ahoy!

20 June, 2010 | Tubesnake Gigs

Sunday 20th June 2010. Our first gig at The Ship in Eighton Banks. Good little gig this one with a 6 o’clock start and all done by 8.15pm. Excellent weather meant there was a good turn out with plenty of people inside and almost as many sitting outside catching some rays. Again, another venue with […]

Snakes In The Grass

4 June, 2010 | Tubesnake Gigs

Back on the road after three weeks off. Friday 4th June 2010. First visit to The Saltgrass, Sunderland and although the room is only big enough to swing a cat and a half we had a great night. Nice and packed and almost felt like the audience and the bar itself were part of the […]

Live Lounge Lizard Kings

14 May, 2010 | Tubesnake Gigs

Friday 14th May 2010 at Durham Live Lounge in North Road, Durham City. A cracking night at this new venue with TUBESNAKE opening at 9pm with an hour long set. Loved the ‘live’ performance video being projected behind us. Hey, this place used to be a cinema years ago. Young local band END REIGN were […]

Stable Bar Rock

16 April, 2010 | Tubesnake Gigs

Friday 16th April 2010 at The Stables Bar & Brewery, Beamish Hall, near Stanley. This was a well attended gig made up of boat loads of friends from Durham, Chester-le-Street and Stanhope plus a big bunch of peeps who turned up to check us out as well as party-people diners who capped their night off […]

Buffalo Soldiers

9 April, 2010 | Tubesnake Gigs

Friday 9th April 2010, Buffalos Rock Night at The Buffs Social Club, Houghton-le-Spring. A tremendous night was had at Buffalos! Almost a year since we last gigged here and we had a good sized crowd in again. This is an excellent venue filled with music fans who pay ¬£2.50 for their musical fix and we […]

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 […]
