The Zoots have been very busy recently and been travelling all over the place by planes, train and luxury taxi’s. Two weeks ago we had the pleasure of performing three shows at the very impressive The Amber Theatre. We set up for souncheck where we met our seven members of the crew. Here is a picture of Liam, our fantasic sound man and a few pictures from our stage set up and soundcheck.
We performed a fantastic show which started with Twist and Shout. I had my new Union Jack blazer which was really popular after show for photos with the audience! Stuart the bassist was nick named ‘The Ewok’ by the compere Jereome Seurer.
The audience were so responsive and I was blown away how loud they sang together. Later in the show I decided to go into the audience to meet them!
We played through a fantatsic set including Stand by Me by Ben E King, Really got me by The Kinks, My Girl by the Temptations and Sweet Caroline. The shows just flash by so quickly and the energy of the audiences was amazing. Here is a video of the encore The crowd really enjoyed Ben Jones’s guitar solo for Apache. Ben had a fan club of his own in the front few rows.
Here is a video of the standing ovation after the show, we had some pyrotechnics too! We had a few pictures after the show too some of which are featured on our Facebook page.
Thank you to these fantatsic people below who took the photos.
Special thanks to Stephen our stage manager, Alex our stage hand, Liam our soundman, Al our 2nd soundman and to Rory, Dwight, Dale and Amy on lights. Thank you also to the band Ben Jones on lead guitar, Mike East on drums, Harriet on percussion and Stuart on bass, they all did a great job. On the way home we flew over the Alps which was amazing. We look forward to returning to The Amber Theatre soon. All the best Jamie
