Sounds of the 60s show, the zoots, 60s tribute

Back in mid November the day started early following a sell out concert the previous evening at Lakeside. Harriet had prepared a special Zoots Olympic breakfast served at HQ before we headed off for our 4 hour journey to Yorkshire.

It was our first time performing our Sounds of the 60s show in Yorkshire so we were really looking forward to it. After a long journey up the M1 and a few stops, we were delighted to see Kings Hall, it looked amazing! The hall is a beautiful Edwardian building which was constructed between 1906-1908. Read more about the history of Kings HallĀ here.

Very kindly the Wicked Lady (Anne) and the venue had provided us with a local delicacy of Pork Pie and selection of cakes, sandwiches, tea, coffee and water. Wow this was going to be great!

We were totally overwhelmed with the amount of people who attended, it must have been about 500 people! Considering we’d never been there before we were all pleasantly surprised!

The audience was fantastic and we were humbled by the applause! Wow! Special thanks to Mary who joined us on stage as pictured below!

We were kindly sent in some photos from some of the audience and these below which Ed took. After our show at Windsor Royal Theatre we didn’t think it could get much better but with a professional, helpful and cheerful crew Joseph, Andy and Garry this show was probably our best of the year so far.

It was fantastic to see some familiar faces; David and Helen Kahn came to see us for the third time! Steve Brady came along with his wife who had seen us perform on a cruise a few years ago! It is so nice that people remember the band and support us, it makes such a big difference!
We really hope we can come back to Yorkshire and the Kings Hall soon! We were overwhelmed to have sold out on our first show!

Thank you so much for reading!

We hope to see you at another show soon. We with you a very Happy Holiday and Christmas period.
