Philippa first got in touch in 2014. Remember 2014? I know right, feels like an age ago! Philippa & Kevin booked The Zoots for their wedding reception on the 20th of June 2015. We were really looking forward to it. Due to a rather unfortunate events, Philippa & Kevin had to reschedule the date of their wedding to the 21st of May 2016. We were available and happily changed the date to fit in with their new date.

Hello! Me again,
Its been a crazy few months in Zoots world, we were touring non stop from November to the beginning of 2016 and we’ve moved our HQ. We’ve found an article from last November about our excellent cruise to Malta, Barcelona and Cagliari.

I hope you enjoyed our blog from December about our performance in the Broadway Melodies Theatre. When we weren’t busy onstage with our 1960’s show, we were fortunate enough to have some time off to explore the places which we stopped in, boy we’ve been very lucky Zoots this year, and we’ve visited some amazing places. Today I want to tell you a little bit about where we went, and share with you some photos we took on our travels in late November. Continue reading

Last year The Zoots performed at Little Hadham for the Nest fundraiser which was a fantastic show. It was there we met Peter Williams and John Marshall who were attending the event. John enquired about The Zoots performing for his wife Christine’s 50th birthday party and we said YES!

John was great to deal with and it’s not very often you will book a band in your life so Harriet does make this alot easier as she can write emails very quickly, probably about 20 times faster that I can!

Hello weekend!

It’s our very favourite part of the week, being a very busy band means we’re usually off doing what we love most. And this weekend, it’s a good ‘un. We’re off to perform at Bebe’s birthday party at the very swish Vineyard Hotel in Newbury.

It was Bebe’s sister, Jessie, who got in touch to see if we were available to be the band for the night. Now, if you’ve just joined us, let me tell you about Jessie. We performed at Jessie’s wedding way back in 2014 (I couldn’t believe it either, it really did feel like it was only yesterday!). You can read our blog about our performance at Jessie & Christian’s wedding at Huntsham Court. Jessie wore one of the most beautiful dresses ever – I loved the colours and details (see the photo below). We were just so thrilled when Jessie got in touch to ask us to perform again, I think being rebooked is one of the best compliments we can ever receive!

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!

Today is pretty special, we’re off to the British Medical Association in Tavistock Square, London for the wedding of the very gorgeous Natalie & Rhys. Natalie & Rhys spotted us at the very brilliant wedding of Cat & Phil, remember that? Over a year ago, but still fresh in our minds. We did a lot of Zeppelin that night, which went down a storm!

We don’t often head to the big smoke as we’re performing lots over seas and in our home county of Wiltshire as well as having lots of bookings throughout the UK. We were excited. The feeling was palpable. Zoots Drummer Andy lives in the big smoke and told us it would be OK as we navigated our way through the labyrinth of little roads and lots of traffic. Continue reading
