I was lucky enough to grow up in the town of Maidenhead in Berkshire and ever since Norden Farm, Centre for the Arts was built in 2000, I have always wanted to play there. It was so close when I lived in Maidenhead, I used to walk to the venue and watch some of the live music events there. When I formed The Zoots, I hoped we’d, one day, perform at Norden Farm, and today was that day, The Zoots were finally playing at the venue a stone’s throw away from where the band was formed.

We were so excited to be heading to Lyme regis today. Our first show back in the UK since our trip to Spain to perform on the Independence of The Seas last week.

The 122 year old Marine Theatre hasn’t always been a theatre. The site has been many things to many people for many years. Bazaars, elections, dinners, Victorian holiday visitors stepping out of hot sea baths, fossil displays, public meetings, music, theatre, dance… a babble of people and scenes make up the atmosphere of this rare and charismatic venue. Needless to say, we were looking forward to performing!  Continue reading

HURRAH IT’S SATURDAY THE 20TH OF MAY! We had the best time yesterday performing at The Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis (read the blog about it here) but today it is the wedding of Chris and Rachel and we’re REALLY EXCITED as they are big back to the future fans, and rumour has it, there will be a DeLorean making an appearance! Eeee.

Rachel and Chris were getting married at Lains Barn in Wantage so it was a fairly short drive from Zoots HQ to the Barn. Rachel had spotted us at her hen do at The Beacon, Wantage last year. (remember that? What an awesome show that was!). We were just so pleased that Rachel enjoyed the show so much that she decided to book The Zoots to perform on their wedding day.

Hurrah, it’s finally here! We’d been waiting for this day for aaaaaaages! It was the day Laura and Pete got married! Laura and Pete spotted us at Sam & Luke’s wedding way back in 2014! Following their engagement on NYE 2016, Laura and Pete got in touch to see if The Zoots were available to perform at their wedding. Laura told us that we were the first thing they booked for their wedding, even before they booked their venue!

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.

Hello weekend, and hello sunshine, sort of. We’ve just returned from a few days overseas, flying to Serbia, then to Kotor, and back from Barcelona. We had a brilliant show in a 900 seater theatre, it was really great (read about it here). But now, were glad to be home. We had a productive practice yesterday, running through some harmonies and some new songs (watch this space). Today, though, were off to Bicester to perform for Kristi and Nick on their wedding day at The Tythe Barn.

It’s been a beautiful week of glorious, and some what humid weather, but we’ve been enjoying it. It’s been a busy week at HQ, we’ve had lots of enquiries for bookings for 2017 (and even 2018) which is just brilliant! Today, we’re off to a lovely place, called Hook, in Hampshire. We’re heading to The Frog & Wicket in Hook to perform at their annual cricket day, taking place on England’s oldest functioning cricket pitch.  Continue reading

Hello weekend!

It’s our very favourite part of the week, being a very busy band means we’re usually off doing what we love most. And this weekend, it’s a good ‘un. We’re off to perform at Bebe’s birthday party at the very swish Vineyard Hotel in Newbury.

It was Bebe’s sister, Jessie, who got in touch to see if we were available to be the band for the night. Now, if you’ve just joined us, let me tell you about Jessie. We performed at Jessie’s wedding way back in 2014 (I couldn’t believe it either, it really did feel like it was only yesterday!). You can read our blog about our performance at Jessie & Christian’s wedding at Huntsham Court. Jessie wore one of the most beautiful dresses ever – I loved the colours and details (see the photo below). We were just so thrilled when Jessie got in touch to ask us to perform again, I think being rebooked is one of the best compliments we can ever receive!

On the 22nd of January 2016, we performed our first UK gig of the year for Opp’s New Years party at The Randolph Hotel in Oxford. It was brilliant!

OPP has 25 years of experience in personality assessment and bringing psychological insights to the workplace, find out more about them here.

Emma was in charge of booking a band for the bash, and she chose us, having been her wedding band a little over a year ago! We remember the night well, in the gorgeous setting of the Crazy Bear in Stadhampton (you should really go there, it’s amazing).

Ok, so we’ve been back three days and I think we’ve just about recovered from what must have been our BEST shows ever, on board the Rhapsody of The Seas.

It began at Zoots HQ in Wiltshire of course, where most of our stories begin. We’ve had a busy few months performing at lots of events including Natalie & Rhys’ wedding, our awesome halloween show at Stamford Corn Exchange, as well as lots of other performances we just really haven’t had the time to tell you about. You may remember from our latest band blog post, we’re moving house, as well as having a full diary of performances and taking bookings well in to 2017, we’re pretty busy! So if you’re thinking about booking The Zoots, we’d recommend getting in touch asap!
