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.

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 2017!

So sorry, its been a total age since we’ve written. There’s no excuse really, apart from we’ve been really busy. Like our feet have hardly touched the ground, until now!

December 2016 was one of THE BEST December’s we’ve ever had. We went to Oman, to UAE, to Germany, France and Belgium. And then we saw the New Year in (on the floor of the airport) in Cuba before sailing to Jamaica!! How lucky are we? I literally have 1000s of photos from our trips, so will include only a few below. If you want to see more, send me an email, and we’ll arrange a slideshow. :)Dubai was hot and interesting. We went to the old Souks (markets) on the river where they sold spices, textiles and gold. We (Tommy) learnt the art of haggling, which came in very useful. We stopped for a bite to eat near the gold souk, where we had some delicious local foods. Jamie bought some of the local attire. We took a little boat across the river (video below) It was an incredible experience.

The Zoots have been soooooo busy this year and have been away so much its been tough to keep up to date with all our news. We had a fantastic November and got to tour some fantastic places; Turkey, Croatia, Portugal, Italy and a brief trip to the Azores. We have some exciting times ahead, in December we are going to the UAE and Oman in the Middle East aswell as Holland, Belgium, Germany and France. To cap it all off we have a show in Cuba on New Years Eve!! Then to Jamaica early January! Lucky us!

Below is a picture of us being the first to arrive at T2 at about 4.00 am on a cold November morning on our way to Turkey.

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!

And today is the real cherry on the icing of our perfect weekend, we we’re performing at Ben, our lead guitarist’s, sisters wedding day!!! We been lucky enough to meet Tamzin and Dan at a few gigs over the years we’ve been playing with Ben, and we instantly loved them. So when they asked us to perform for them on their most special of special days, we jumped at the chance. Continue reading

The Zoots perform for Jessie & Christian at Huntsham Court, Devon, Wedding venue Devon, Wedding band for hire, Band for my wedding, The Zoots, jamie Goddard, Huntsham Court, November wedding, Wiltshire Wedding Band, Wedding Band Devon,

Today’s journey is dark and a little chilly. It’s November the 15th, a Saturday. We’re travelling from Zoots HQ here in Wiltshire to Devon. Destination: Huntsham Court. We make our way down windy country lanes, with tight twists and turns, night-time fast approaching. We are literally in the middle of nowhere. No houses, no farms, nothing, just acres and acres of countryside. I imagine in the daylight, it’s a pretty spectacular, beautiful and green but now, as the dusk settles, it’s a bit spooky. There’s no service on our phones and we discuss what would *really* happen if we broke down. Werewolves, really really quick sand and very spooky, haunted woods spring to mind as we envisage ourselves tramping through the soggy fields searching for help. My mind gets carried away with me as we journey on, making a mental note to pack torches and blankets for our next outing, you know, “just in case”. I want to reach the venue before it gets dark, to see the building properly in the light. But time and daylight are not on our side. As we pull up, I take a photo. I hope you can tell from the photie above…it’s pretty special.

Today, it’s a special one on the blog for The Zoots. It’s the 4th of October 2014 and SAM IS GETTING MARRIED! I’ve known Sam since school. At the age of 11 we became friends as we both embarked on 5 year venture through secondary school. We then journeyed through college together and went our separate ways a few years later for university. Our paths have crossed over the years as we’ve kept up to date with what each other has been doing via Facebook and mutual friends. Sam got in touch in January 2014, having seen The Zoots on The Independence of The Seas a few years ago, she wondered if we performed at weddings and if we would be available to perform at hers! We said yes!!! I was so excited and nervous and happy and smily and feeling so wonderful that Sam had asked us!  Continue reading
