band on tour

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.

Hello! Me again,
Its been a crazy few months in Zoots world, we were touring non stop from November to the beginning of 2016 and we’ve moved our HQ. We’ve found an article from last November about our excellent cruise to Malta, Barcelona and Cagliari.

I hope you enjoyed our blog from December about our performance in the Broadway Melodies Theatre. When we weren’t busy onstage with our 1960’s show, we were fortunate enough to have some time off to explore the places which we stopped in, boy we’ve been very lucky Zoots this year, and we’ve visited some amazing places. Today I want to tell you a little bit about where we went, and share with you some photos we took on our travels in late November. Continue reading

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!

The Zoots in Santorini

We’ve had a fantastic few weeks and The Zoots have travelled to some beautiful places: Rome, Pisa, Naples, Athens, Venice, Kotor, Vienna and Santorini. We have spent a long time in planes airports and taxis, some journeys more dangerous than others. We have survived a few testing times including a petrol shortage and a lorry strike in Naples and our lost luggage in Santorini. We’ve had few near misses with including the riots in Athens which we missed by a few hours.

Today it’s Tuesday. It’s 6am and Zoots HQ is a hive of activity. Last minute packing, quick cups of teas, early morning showers and the packing of the Zootmobile, are all happening on this early May Tuesday. The grass is dewy and spirits are high. We’re looking forward to the day ahead.

Only this Saturday we performed for Emily & Jack on their wedding day, and the weekend before we had a blast performing for those dancing Queens in Little Hadham at the charity bash in aid of NeST. Needless to say it’s been a busy few weeks of performances.

The early start this Tuesday morning was down to performing on our very first Royal Caribbean cruise of the season. We we’re getting ready to catch a flight to Pisa to meet the Allure of The Seas, THE BIGGEST CRUISE SHIP IN THE OCEAN! We were joining the ship to perform with our pretty popular 1960s show, more about that later. Now, we’re Gatwick bound, brushing up on our Italian in preparation for our night in Pisa.  Continue reading
