Saturday the 13th of June 2015 was a day we’d been looking forward to. We were headed to Morton on the Marsh to perform at June’s birthday bash. I just love Morton on the Marsh, if you have a chance to go there, you must! It is simply beautiful.
June had spotted us at one of our Zoots performances earlier in the year and asked us right away if we were available to perform for her. She was looking for a 60s themed band for her birthday party and we were just her cup of tea! We checked the date, we were available! Hooray! The Zoots were coming to the Cotswolds.
In the lead up to the 13th of June, we were in touch with June and her PA Claire. They were just super. Both Claire and June were so brilliant at going through everything with us, making sure we had everything we could possibly need. We were looking forward to it! We arrived at around 430pm, greeted by June and her team who were preparing for the evening ahead. June’s house was amazing!
June had an amazing marquee erected in her garden. Steve from Oasis Events had set it up with his team. Steve was so kind and helped us with our kit across the lawns, THANK YOU STEVE, you’re ace. The marquee had a beautiful, bohemian, Morrocan feel to it. There were huge cushions, mood setting lanterns, potted plants and fairy lights, all creating a very chilled and lovely atmosphere. I just loved the rugs for the floor.
We set up our equipment. We’d just invested in some new lights too, which we were excited to try out!
Had lots of lovely food and drink. We were very lucky! Craig made us a cup of tea when we arrived and gave us a delicious platter of sandwiches. Later on we had some incredible caviar canopies served in our fab dressing room.
There was a cool DJ Basement area where Steve the DJ was playing, Jamie quickly popped down to help wire up the speakers.
Here is Craig and his catering team with the Hog Roast from RND Butchers :
After all the papmpering, we were ready to go on
It was a fantastic evening and these photos were kindly provided by Rich Innes. There were some fantastic 1960’s costumes and some fab dancing!
Thank you so much to June for choosing The Zoots for her 60s themed band for her party! We had such a wonderful time.
We were looked after so well and we met some lovely people on the night.
Lots of love from,
Harriet, Jamie and The Zoots xx
