Yesterday was so fantastic, Our 1960’s show went down so well, we were exhausted.

We stayed at a B&B close to the venue, which Kevin has kindly arranged for us.

As we weren’t far from my parents in Lancashire, we decided to meet up and have a day out with the Lowthers at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
We had a lovely day in the sunshine going on rides, and hanging out with my family. It also happened to be my mums birthday, so I was really pleased that I was able to celebrate the day with her.

The Zoots at Blackpool tower, band from Wiltshire, band in Lancashire, band in Blackpool, live band at Blackpool tower, Blackpool tower entertainment, 60s show in Lancashire

We’ve been looking forward to this weekend, since it was booked back in April last year. 41 Club member Kevin had spotted us perform on a cruise and emailed to ask if we would be available to perform at the 41 Club Annual Conference ‘Blackpool Roxx’ on the weekend on the 21st and 22nd of April. 41 Club was formed in 1945 to provide a way for members of Round Table to continue their friendships after retirement from Round Table at the then obligatory age of 40. Once a year they meet for their National Conference, this year the conference was to take place at Blackpool Tower, where The Zoots would be performing on Friday and Saturday evening!  Continue reading

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!

The Zoots band at Clevedon Hall

“Thanks again for playing at our wedding last Friday, it was amazing!!  Tons of people commented on how much they enjoyed the music (and amazing variety in the setlist as well)…”

Steph and Laurence got in touch in May 2016 to see if The Zoots would be available to perform for them at their wedding.

We first met Laurence when they arranged to come and see us perform at 1960‘s festival in Weston in 2016. They were by far the youngest people in the audience,  so we recognised them straight away. It was great to meet them, and we’re so pleased our show gave them a flavour for what we could do. They liked it so much, they decided they would like to book The Zoots to be their band for their wedding. Fast forward a few months and we were proud to be performing for the lovely couple on their special day. Continue reading

The Zoots band Hereford

Stuart and Emma got in touch with us, after spotting us perform at Bianca and Dan’s wedding at Chaffeymoor Grange in 2016. They enjoyed our show so much, that they emailed to see if we were available to perform at their wedding in March 2017, at the very lovely Dewsall Court. We were available and the date was set!

wedding band in Henley, wedding band Bagdemore Park, party band Henley, party band Badgemore park, Stevie Lange

Today is Saturday the 4th of March and we’re off to Henley to perform at Badgemore Park to perform at the wedding of Claire and Simon! Claire was Jamie’s neighbour and they have been family friends since he was a baby, so we were really looking forward to performing them! We knew it was going to be a great night and we were looking forward to performing in front of lots of people we know. But we had to make sure we were going to put on a very special performance.

We arrived in Henley in good time and just had a quick peep into George Harrison’s old house Friar Park which is right next door to Badgemore Park.

We had been planning a show local to home for a long time, we just couldn’t find the right venue for The Zoots to play. We rehearsed at the Wyvern Theatre a couple of years back and thought about St Johns but couldn’t decide. I’d been to Marlborough Town Hall but had never been upstairs,  I arranged an appointment and immediately thought it would be a great venue for a Halloween show. It was designed in Victorian times and has a fantastic history and even has cells in the basement for the naughty people.
We booked the hall, got some printed tickets and started selling! We had a great start to sales from our lovely new neighbours who bought the first 60 tickets! We were also very lucky to have the support of Marlborough Academy of Dance and Drama. Cheryl Heuston who runs the academy put together two brilliant Halloween themed dances for the students to open the show. We also planned for one of Ben Jones’s guitar students Ellie to make a guest appearance too. The local press were also very supportive as were Mercers of Marlborough.
