The Zoots were honoured to be performing at The Boundary Festival in Didcot on Saturday 15th July. We had been booked by our good friend Gemma who booked us for our first show at The Beacon in 2015! Remember that! We had put together a ‘BEST OF BRITISH’ show which included lots of the best British music from the last 60 years, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Oasis, Blur, David Bowie, The Kinks and The Small Faces.

HURRAH IT’S SATURDAY THE 20TH OF MAY! We had the best time yesterday performing at The Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis (read the blog about it here) but today it is the wedding of Chris and Rachel and we’re REALLY EXCITED as they are big back to the future fans, and rumour has it, there will be a DeLorean making an appearance! 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.

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!

Hello 2017!

So sorry, its been a total age since we’ve written. There’s no excuse really, apart from we’ve been really busy. Like our feet have hardly touched the ground, until now!

December 2016 was one of THE BEST December’s we’ve ever had. We went to Oman, to UAE, to Germany, France and Belgium. And then we saw the New Year in (on the floor of the airport) in Cuba before sailing to Jamaica!! How lucky are we? I literally have 1000s of photos from our trips, so will include only a few below. If you want to see more, send me an email, and we’ll arrange a slideshow. :)Dubai was hot and interesting. We went to the old Souks (markets) on the river where they sold spices, textiles and gold. We (Tommy) learnt the art of haggling, which came in very useful. We stopped for a bite to eat near the gold souk, where we had some delicious local foods. Jamie bought some of the local attire. We took a little boat across the river (video below) It was an incredible experience.

Hello weekend, and hello sunshine, sort of. We’ve just returned from a few days overseas, flying to Serbia, then to Kotor, and back from Barcelona. We had a brilliant show in a 900 seater theatre, it was really great (read about it here). But now, were glad to be home. We had a productive practice yesterday, running through some harmonies and some new songs (watch this space). Today, though, were off to Bicester to perform for Kristi and Nick on their wedding day at The Tythe Barn.
