Isle of Man TT Festival 2020


Snake Oil are travelling to the Isle of Man TT Races in 2020.  After 2 years of mulling it over, with Gordon going away to drum for York band 'Fireball', the guys have finally decided to make the plunge.  


The TT Festival is a fantastic fortnight, literally 14 days of bikes, bands, great atmosphere, thrilling racing and fantastic scenery.  It isn't an easy thing for a UK band to make it over there - two weeks off work, two weeks away from the wife (could actually be a bonus) and, the biggest barrier, a very expensive trip on the Isle of Man Steam Packet with a van full of kit and 14 days accommodation (not under canvas).


Despite these hurdles, the band are doing it.  Performing each night for a fortnight in front of such a great audience is every band's dream - and as a bonus, the boys get to watch the world's premier road racing.  Dave, Dave and Gordon (the Leeds based Manx element of the band) will be over and are booking performances between Monday 1st and Friday 12th June (inclusive).


Information for Venues


You will not be making a mistake booking Snake Oil, they have a great reputation all over Yorkshire and far beyond.  The band is incredibly tight, well practiced and perform only the most popular up-tempo classic rock and blues.  Formed in 2014 and gigging on a regular basis across the North of England, the band is very experienced playing pubs, music venues and festivals.  They are a favourite at biker parties, clubhouses and bike rallys.  Dave, Dave and Gordon have well over 100 years (combined) perfomance experience and use only top quality equipment.  The band regularly play as a 3 or 4 piece - they will be travelling to the island and performing in their original 3 piece line up that they toured with for over 3 years.  However, don't be fooled by that, the three create a full, professional sound second to none.


A number of live videos of the band performing as a trio are below, please play them through either decent speakers or headphones to get an indication of their live sound.


We have now started to take bookings for 2020 and our availability is also detailed below.  If you are an Island music venue you will know how quickly these dates will fill up.  If you would like to enquire about booking the band then please use our contact form or email
