Snakecharmer are made up by former Whitesnake men Mickey Moody and Neil Murray and joined by ex Wishbone Ash guitarist Laurie Wisefield, Ozzy Osborne keyboard player Adam Wakeman (son of Rick), Thunder and Magnum drummer Harry James and Heartland vocalist Chris Ousey. With that line up you can't fail to be disappointed!
It is always the case at The Stables that photography is banned. I didn't see one other person with a camera or phone which is highly unusual at a Rock concert. In fact they do have their very own covert band of female bouncers, oh yes. They are cunningly disguised as usherettes and Ice cream sellers but put one foot out of line and they pounce. Undaunted I was happy to let Marina take the ones used in this blog.

The entire gig is superbly played as you would expect, with Moody and Wisefield trading off each other well, James showing his class being the kit and Wakeman holding the thing together, particularly with his fine Hammond Organ. Murray by contrast is content to stand in the shadows letting his more extrovert colleagues take the limelight.Wonderful to meet Neil Murray and Micky Moody afterwards. Managed to get my book 'Playing with Trumpets' signed at long last by Micky.
