60s tribute show, sixties tribut band, the zoots, sounds of the sixties show, norden farm, band in berkshire

I was lucky enough to grow up in the town of Maidenhead in Berkshire and ever since Norden Farm, Centre for the Arts was built in 2000, I have always wanted to play there. It was so close when I lived in Maidenhead, I used to walk to the venue and watch some of the live music events there. When I formed The Zoots, I hoped we’d, one day, perform at Norden Farm, and today was that day, The Zoots were finally playing at the venue a stone’s throw away from where the band was formed.

We were so excited to be heading to Lyme regis today. Our first show back in the UK since our trip to Spain to perform on the Independence of The Seas last week.

The 122 year old Marine Theatre hasn’t always been a theatre. The site has been many things to many people for many years. Bazaars, elections, dinners, Victorian holiday visitors stepping out of hot sea baths, fossil displays, public meetings, music, theatre, dance… a babble of people and scenes make up the atmosphere of this rare and charismatic venue. Needless to say, we were looking forward to performing!  Continue reading

HURRAH IT’S SATURDAY THE 20TH OF MAY!

Eeee.

Rachel and Chris were getting married at Lains Barn in Wantage so it was a fairly short drive from Zoots HQ to the Barn. Rachel had spotted us at her hen do at The Beacon, Wantage last year. (remember that? What an awesome show that was!). We were just so pleased that Rachel enjoyed the show so much that she decided to book The Zoots to perform on their wedding day.

Yesterday was so fantastic, Our 1960’s show went down so well, we were exhausted.

We stayed at a B&B close to the venue, which Kevin has kindly arranged for us.

As we weren’t far from my parents in Lancashire, we decided to meet up and have a day out with the Lowthers at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
We had a lovely day in the sunshine going on rides, and hanging out with my family. It also happened to be my mums birthday, so I was really pleased that I was able to celebrate the day with her.

Amanda's birthday party, CAvendish Hotel, Band for 50th birthday party, Sussex band, Eastbourne band, band from Wiltshire, the zoots party band

“Thank you for the most amazing night on Saturday you certainly performed your hearts out and my party certainly had a ball”

We’re so excited that spring is here. It’s hot and the sun is out. We’re on our way to Eastbourne today, to perform for Stephen and Amanda at Amanda’s birthday party. Amanda knows about the party, but she doesn’t know about us performing, she thinks Stephen has booked another band!

Stephen and Amanda spotted The Zoots when we performed at the Eastbourne Bandstand last year (did you read the blog about our show – there’s some fab photos).

Both Stephen and Amanda loved the show and asked if we would be able to perform for his wife’s surprise party in April 2018. We were available and the date was set! 🙂 Whilst on the phone, chatting to Stephen, he mentioned he was heading to Goodwood Revival that weekend. ‘What a co-incidence’, I said. ‘We’re performing at Goodwood!’. Did you read the blog about our show at Goodwood Revival? It was amazing, and even better was that we were able to meet up with Stephen too!

The date was set and we were looking forward to it!

The Zoots band at Clevedon Hall

“Thanks again for playing at our wedding last Friday, it was amazing!!  Tons of people commented on how much they enjoyed the music (and amazing variety in the setlist as well)…”

Steph and Laurence got in touch in May 2016 to see if The Zoots would be available to perform for them at their wedding.

We first met Laurence when they arranged to come and see us perform at 1960‘s festival in Weston in 2016. They were by far the youngest people in the audience,  so we recognised them straight away. It was great to meet them, and we’re so pleased our show gave them a flavour for what we could do. They liked it so much, they decided they would like to book The Zoots to be their band for their wedding. Fast forward a few months and we were proud to be performing for the lovely couple on their special day. Continue reading
