Christmas party band
The Zoots were honoured to asked to perform at the Salisbury Christmas lights switch on on 21st November. The council were looking for local Wiltshire acts to perform so we were super keen to be involved.
It was a rainy day in Salisbury but the Fireworks roared and a huge crowd cheered just before we came on stage.
For our Christmas show we had to choose song fun Christmas themed songs to play, when you type into Christmas songs into Google we discovered there are over 1 million versions of Christmas songs to choose from! We put our heads together and rounded it down to the best 5 Christmas songs we could think of for the event!
According to Webuybooks.com the top ten Christmas songs in the UK are
1. Fairy tale of New York – The Pogues
2. All i want for Xmas is you – Mariah Carey
3. Last Christmas – Wham
4. I wish it could be Xmas everyday – Wizzard
5. Merry Xmas Everybody – Slade,
6.Do they know its Xmas time – Band Aid
7. Merry Christmas Everyone – Shakin’ Stevens
8. Driving Home For Christmas – Chris Rea
9. Stay Another Day – East 17
10. Rocking Around the Christmas Tree – Brenda Lee
So The Zoots choose five of the top ten which we felt we could make sound as much as the original song without having use backing tracks.
The Zoots would like to thank our tech for the evening Kieren Moore, everyone from Salisbury Council, REM Events, WE Audio, Ash Mills and Alex Robins for the photos.
