And this weekend is no different; we’re heading to Oxfordshire to perform for Alice & Brett at the Crazy Bear in Stadhampton. Continue reading
Today it’s Good Friday, 25th March 2016. Outside, it feels like a summers day, the first of the year! Spirits are high as we’ve been looking forward today for many months now, ever since we were invited back to perform at The Beacon Theatre, in Wantage following our performance last year. You may have spotted our posters, or heard us shouting out about our event (that is until all of the tickets SOLD OUT!). Crikey we were really looking forward to this evening. Continue reading
Last weekend was pretty busy! It began on Friday in Brean where we performed with our ‘sister act’, Jamie and the First Class. Afterwards we ventured North to the Lake District to perform at a very lovely wedding for James and Abbie, read the blog about it here.
Jen got in touch back in October to see if we were available to be her party band for the night. The party sounded fabulous and we were thrilled to be asked! We met with Jen and her husband Richard at Bowood House a few weeks before the bash to run through their song choices and where we would be setting up. We like to do this is we can as its always good to put faces to names and run through the plan for the evening! They were just lovely, and the party sounded brilliant. They had chosen some great songs for the evening, La Bamba, Hound Dog, Daydream Believer, Twist & Shout, Moves Like Jagger and loads more! We were so excited to be performing them. Continue reading
On Friday 4th April 2014 we ( The Zoots ) performed at The Royal Thames Yacht Club Young Members Masquerade Ball.
It was a truly awesome night and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was our second performance at the venue in Knightsbridge following the success of the Carribean themed ball in 2013. This year was even better performance and the crowd were totally awesome! It was a brilliant performance by the band and we look forward to going back again in 2015. Continue reading
In March 2012, two years ago, The Zoots were chosen to perform at The Aldermore Conference at the Hilton in Manchester. It was a fantastic event with a British theme. We shared the stage with a London phone box and a London Taxi. There was also a victorian style fair in the foyer. The crowd were totally awesome, they danced all night and sang a long to every word! The Hilton in Manchester (also known as Beetham Tower) is the ninth tallest building in England and the tallest building in the UK outside London (as of 2014). It has 47 floors and on the 23rd floor lives ‘Could 23’ a very trendy bar which the band checked out in the break. The building creates its own hum which is believed to be the note of B (below middle C). The views from the Hilton are stunning, you can see the see of Coronation Street as well as The Blackpool Tower and Liverpool Cathedral. Beetham Tower cost £150 million to construct and is one of the most unique modern buildings The Zoots have performed in.
We had a fantastic time at The Oxford Brookes Winter Ball. We were honoured to be the party band and a huge part of such a brilliant event and to have performed on the same stage as the likes of David Bowie, Robert Plant and Marc Bolan. Here are some of the photos taken by Cameron Smith.
