We LOVE performing at the Alhambra Theater, a HUGE stage, an awesome PA, soooo many wicked lights, 2000 seats over 2 tiers and an awesome crew to work with!Jacko, Stage Manager, Gerry on sound, Mike on lights and Greg backstage are just brilliant. We opened the show with our new animated introduction which shows The Zoots coming from home to the stage. We have adding so many things to the show and we were really looking forward to showing them off.
Well hello lovely Internet viewer, are you having a good day? Is it cold where you are? It’s pretty nippy here, I have on 3 sweaters.

Wow. It’s autumn already. You may have noticed we’ve been a bit quiet on the blogging front, our bad. We’ve been so busy. Like really so busy. We’ve not even had chance to tell you about some of the awesome things The Zoots have been doing.

The Zoots have been very busy recently and been travelling all over the place by planes, train and luxury taxi’s. Two weeks ago we had the pleasure of performing three shows at the very impressive The Amber Theatre. We set up for souncheck where we met our seven members of the crew. Here is a picture of Liam, our fantasic sound man and a few pictures from our stage set up and soundcheck.
I am really looking forward to performing The Oxford Brookes Soceity Ball this week.
In a Gatsby Themed evening at Oxford Town Hall, it should be breathtakingly good!

The Zoots 5th birthday!
It has been an exciting time for us so far in 2014. Celebrating our 5th birthday, The Zoots have stayed in the UK for January and February for the first time ever except a brief trip to Lanzarote. We have been rehearsing and working hard on our act both on an off stage. We have been working on new songs for both our 1960s show and for all the other decades too. The year started with the birthday 40th Birthday Party of Ann Marie Gardiner who has been one of our longest standing fans for her Masquerade Ball. Ann-Marie came to one of our first ever shows at Butlins in 2009 and has been to see us many times since. She described the evening as “.. the best night of my life…”
