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
Today it’s Good Friday, 25th March 2016. Outside, it feels like a summers day, the first of the year! Spirits are high as we’ve been looking forward today for many months now, ever since we were invited back to perform at The Beacon Theatre, in Wantage following our performance last year.

We packed and packed and checked and checked again. We did it all. Phew. We could have 2 hours sleep before our taxi was due to arrive. TWO. Or ‘none’ hours sleep was the case for Zoots lead guitarist Ben. We were tired sleepy grumpy bed hair heads when 6am came and our perky taxi driver greeted us. Ahead lay a 3 hour journey to London Southend Airport. Continue reading
