We LOVE performing at the Alhambra Theater, a HUGE stage, an awesome PA, soooo many wicked lights, 2000 seats over 2 tiers and an awesome crew to work with!Jacko, Stage Manager, Gerry on sound, Mike on lights and Greg backstage are just brilliant. We opened the show with our new animated introduction which shows The Zoots coming from home to the stage. We have adding so many things to the show and we were really looking forward to showing them off.
This year has got off to a great start. It began in Cuba, and then Jamaica, which was just amazing!! Then we headed back to the UK where we’ve had lots of shows keeping us busy. Our performances have taken us to Bath, Oxford, Hertfordshire, Coventry, Taunton, and that’s all before February has finished! And today we’re heading to North Wales, to perform at the lovely Bodelwyddan Castle.
We set off early as we had a long drive ahead of us. The journey was fun as we played ‘guess the film score’ game with Ben’s new bluetooth speaker.
We arrived in good time, and the team at Bodelwyddan Castle showed us to the ahem…*cue proud moment*… ‘Lowther suite’ where we would be playing that evening! You could say it was made for me! hehe!
As a band we get to travel around alot and we get to see some lovely places, recently we’ve been to Kusadasi, La Coruna, Split, Lisbon and The Azores. It is a brilliant journey and we are having a great time, we just need to remember to tell everyone about it! Continue reading
The Zoots have been soooooo busy this year and have been away so much its been tough to keep up to date with all our news. We had a fantastic November and got to tour some fantastic places; Turkey, Croatia, Portugal, Italy and a brief trip to the Azores. We have some exciting times ahead, in December we are going to the UAE and Oman in the Middle East aswell as Holland, Belgium, Germany and France. To cap it all off we have a show in Cuba on New Years Eve!! Then to Jamaica early January! Lucky us!
Below is a picture of us being the first to arrive at T2 at about 4.00 am on a cold November morning on our way to Turkey. Travelling to all these warmer places makes winter so much better! Continue reading
Don’t you love summer in the UK? We’ve had some good weather days and some back weather days in UK recently. As the UK weather was being some what indecisive, we were looking forward to heading to Lisbon where there was going to be GUARANTEED SUNSHINE. HOORAY. Continue reading
We’ve just (last week, sorry we’ve been busy) returned from Barcelona, but out story today begins in Montenegro, where we headed a few Mondays ago. Kotor to be precise. With a population of of around 13,510 and a town centre steeped in history, Kotor is a lovely place to visit and a place we were looking forward to going back there. Continue reading
And it’s early (for us)! We have a 4 hour drive ahead of us, as we make our way to Suffolk to perform with our 1960’s show. This time last week, we were on our way to perform at Sian & Kevin’s wedding at Bassmead Manor Barns, it was so brilliant, if you haven’t already, have a read of the blog here. Continue reading
Ok, so we’ve been back three days and I think we’ve just about recovered from what must have been our BEST shows ever, on board the Rhapsody of The Seas.
It began at Zoots HQ in Wiltshire of course, where most of our stories begin. We’ve had a busy few months performing at lots of events including Natalie & Rhys’ wedding, our awesome halloween show at Stamford Corn Exchange, as well as lots of other performances we just really haven’t had the time to tell you about. You may remember from our latest band blog post, we’re moving house, as well as having a full diary of performances and taking bookings well in to 2017, we’re pretty busy! So if you’re thinking about booking The Zoots, we’d recommend getting in touch asap!
Wow. It’s autumn already. You may have noticed we’ve been a bit quiet on the blogging front, our bad. We’ve been so busy. Like really so busy. We’ve not even had chance to tell you about some of the awesome things The Zoots have been doing. We’ve not filled you in on the pretty spectacular and very colourful wedding of Tara & Vig at the stunning Boreham House, back in August (was it really August?!). Nor have we had a minute to stop and mention just how fantastic Laura & Andy’s wedding at Walton Castle was (we played in a turret!!) and we’ve just not sat down to really soak up how much we enjoyed performing for Emma & Lee at their beautiful wedding at the Moonraker in Wiltshire.
