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.

Wow. It’s autumn already. You may have noticed we’ve been a bit quiet on the blogging front, our bad. We’ve been so busy. Like really so busy. We’ve not even had chance to tell you about some of the awesome things The Zoots¬†have been doing. We’ve not filled you in on the pretty spectacular and very colourful wedding of Tara & Vig at the stunning Boreham House, back in August (was it really August?!). Nor have we had a minute to stop and mention just how fantastic Laura & Andy’s wedding at Walton Castle was (we played in a turret!!) and we’ve just not sat down to really soak up how much we enjoyed performing for Emma & Lee at their beautiful wedding at the Moonraker in Wiltshire.

So this weekend has been preeeee-tay busy, but that’s how we like it. Last week we’re performing on the Allure of The Seas with our 1960s show. We arrived back yesterday to perform for Charlotte & Ian on their wedding day at Westonbirt House, it was brilliant. 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

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

On Saturday 9th of May we had the pleasure of performing for Francesca and Rory’s wedding. ¬†We had a fantastic journey early in the morning in our new Mercedes 6 wheeler ‘The White Knight’. We travelled south through the windy roads beneath¬†Marlborough and eventually drove past the majestic Stonehendge. Most people drive quite slow to have a quick look at the amazing structure¬†which was built 5000 years ago, we had a good look too! Continue reading

Lisa & Niall got in touch with us what feels like years ago! We’d been recommended to them, so they came to one of our public events to watch us perform. Not long after they booked us for their wedding at Cuffley Camp in Hertfordshire. We’d been in touch with Lisa & Niall loads in the run up to the wedding. I loved the little notes Lisa send with her post, always made our day receiving something from her.

Cuffley Camp was a pretty unique wedding venue. It’s an ‘outdoor Centre is set in 90 acres of outstanding natural beauty in south-east Hertfordshire, just 15 minutes from the M25. The site, which is designated as a site of Special Scientific Interest, dates back to the 13th Century and its characteristic Hornbeam trees form part of an extensive managed woodland.’ The room we performed in was just wow!

Hello May 31st. It’s Saturday. It’s around 4pm. We’re at Zoots HQ in Wiltshire, having a cup of tea and loading the van all set for our performance at Tylney Hall in Hampshire. The skies are clear and we’re feeling elated. We’ve just returned from performing to 2000 people on a cruise to France and Italy, (read all about it here) and we’re looking forward to performing for a very lovely couple, Olivia & Rich. They got in touch in July 2013 to see if we were available to perform for them. They sounded just wonderful and their wedding sounded perfect so we of course said yes! Tylney Hall is just such a breath-takingly grand venue. We are¬†pretty excited.

We’ve arrived it’s even better than we remembered. We’ve visited Tylney Hall¬†a few months ago and met with Olivia & Rich and Olivia’s parents Lindsey & Terry. It was great to check out the room we were performing in, our load in arrangements and where we could park. We always like to visit a venue if we can before the day as it really helps things to run extra smoothly. It’s also great to meet the hosts if we can too, and put names to faces so that on the night it’s more personal. Continue reading

Friday the 23rd of May 2014 had been in our diary for well over a year. I can remember the first time I spoke to the lovely bride Jess, she called us waaaaaay back in 2013 to see if we were available to perform at her wedding at Bowood House! She’d spotted our Zoots advert in Bride magazine and couldn’t wait to call us. We said yes and arranged to meet up with her to discuss the details¬†and the running order of the day. Jess was even more lovely when we met her ¬†and her and he mum Juliette in person, it was great to put face to names!

And doesn’t time fly! We arrived at Bowood House feeling fresh and excited. It was a nice day, slightly overcast, but looked to be brightening up! We arrived a little early so waited until the guests had sat down before we began loading in. While we were waiting we saw the Owl who was used to deliver Jess and James’ rings during the wedding reception. A real owl! Wow. It was great. Photographer Glenn from ‘Your Digitial Memories‘ was there and he showed us a great shot of Jess and James’ with the owl. Continue reading

Saturday got off to a great start. Lead Guitarist Ben and Bass player Stuart stayed over a Zoots HQ following our gig the night before in Brean with our other group Jamie & The First Class. We started the day off with a tasty cooked breakfast before being joined by drummer Master East and hitting the road, bound for Sussex to perform at the wedding of Juliette & Nicolas. We met them a few weeks previously to talk weddings. Read all about it here. The journey was good, the weather was nice and we made good time. We stopped on the way to make a few phone calls and take some selfies. Continue reading
