“The Zoots are the kind of talented, young band it’s impossible not to like. Breezing through a tight set, they looked sharp, totally confident in their ability to entertain” THE STAGE

“The keyword for the Zoots is fun – they never stand still for a moment and with a brilliant combination of slick and well polished Shadows-style moves, make up and costume changes, switches of instruments and a backdrop of relevant video throughout, they create a show that entertains wonderfully.” N2 Arts & Entertainment review
