Best Wishes From Tubesnake

1 January, 2023 | Tubesnake News

In 2022 we were once again able to gig right throughout the year, January to December, for the first time since the pre-pandemic year of 2019. We had a great year and allowed ourselves a little more time off, in-line with “shedding some skin” (see post on 7 March, 2022). Despite dropping our output by […]

Tubesnake Shed Some Skin

7 March, 2022 | Tubesnake News

Prior to the Coronavirus Pandemic we were keen on beating our previous year’s number of gigs and succeeded in doing that, pushing upwards of 70 plus gigs a year. Along came the pandemic and our 80 bookings in 2020 were knocked back to just 23 gigs. Restrictions were still in place for the first half […]

On The Road Again

1 August, 2021 | Tubesnake News

Coronavirus restrictions and getting our vaccinations prevented us from gigging for 8 long months. July is now over but not before we squeezed in 6 gigs starting on July 3rd, including two on a fab outdoor stage erected in the car park of The Rose Inn Pub in Wallsend. One of these outdoor gigs took […]

Blurred Vision

1 January, 2021 | Tubesnake News

Well last year may have started off with a post about “2020 Vision” and a diary full of gigs to keep us busy right through the year but, after playing 19 gigs up to the 14th March, the emergence of the Coronavirus Pandemic obviously changed everything. We did manage to squeeze in four socially distanced […]

Welcome to the New Year. 78 gigs under our belt in 2018, our biggest number of gigs yet in one year and we’re already booked for over 70 gigs in this new year. “The early bird catches the worm” they say and, as far as bookings are concerned for 2019, we ain’t been hanging around. […]

Class gig at The Fat Ox in Whitley Bay last night. Excellent venue with a crowd that really made the night. Now we embark on a five-week break, our longest break since 2007. Moving from one Ox to another, our next gig is at The Durham Ox in Coundon near Bishop Auckland on Saturday 9th […]

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 […]
