This is the second part of the Blog for our Good Friday show at The Beacon in Wantage, (did you catch up with our antics in part 1?) The show was so good, and we had so many photos and videos from the night, that we had to put it in two parts! At the end of the first show, no one could quite believe what Jamie had done with his guitar! In the break we put on our new costumes which consisted of some Red Guards jackets, as featured in our photo shoot with Michael Randolph last summer. The set started with a new one for us; Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club band followed by ‘With a little help from my friends’ which were originally recorded 50 years ago!
It was our 4th show at The Beacon, Wantage and we had been working really hard to make this show a night to remember. We had lots of new things planned. Tonight would mark our first performance of our very own Zoots song written by lead guitarist Ben Jones, it would be the debut of The Zoots animation intro, the second time Jamie played the piano live on stage, the first time Harriet would sing two songs for the *and* we had some new costumes to show off. People had come far and wide to see the show, our super family fans and cousins; Ben, Vicki and Amy had driven 2 hours to be there! Our friends Amy and Ian and our super young fans Zara and Kaiya had driven from the other side of Bristol.
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
Well 2016 has started off with a bang! We began the year in Israel with Jamie & The First Class (it’s still us, just different outfits). Read all about the great time we had performing overseas here. Last Friday The Zoots were in Oxford for Opp’s New Year party at the very amazing Randoph Hotel. Then it was off to Little Hadham to perform at Christine’s birthday bash, where we witnessed some of the best dancing we have ever seen (photos to follow shortly!).
Today is Tuesday, and we’re looking back. Waaaaaay back in 2010 (remember that?!), We remember it well. It was when The Zoots performed one of their first Christmas shows at Corton Coastal Village. And that’s where we were headed today.
Across the M4, around the M25, up the M11 and down the A12 to East Anglia; bound for Corton Coastal Village for an awesome 50’s and 60’s themed party.
A lot has happened since 2010, The Zoots have since travelled all over Europe, the Middle East and USA. The band are now a five piece, we’ve got a new line up, new equipment, new van and we’ve got the best show we’ve ever had. We were looking forward to showing the guests all our shiny new bits.
