“It was like stepping back in time, the outfits, the music, the dancing – it was brilliant!
Do you love the 1960’s? We love the 1960’s! We love it so much, we have created a show dedicated to the sixites. It’s still us, The Zoots but instead of performing songs from 6 decades, we’ve put together a show full of your favourite1960’s songs. We recreate the note for note brilliance from artists such as The Beatles, The Who, The Kinks, The Monkees, Neil Diamond and The Rolling Stones, The Monkees & The Searchers, as well as adding our own spin on the classics you know and love.
Here’s one of our latest videos of our 1960s show:
We have worked hard to capture the essence of the 60’s with authentic costumes, vintage equipment and a fully live show. We have recreated the sound & look associated with many acts during the era with the same youthfulness & energy.
Our 1960’s show has been specially tailored to suit all age groups, performing songs that are relevant today. We encourage & provoke audience participation, dancing & singing throughout the show. Don’t fancy a full 1960’s show? That’s fine, check out our song list – we can perform a selection of songs from the past 60 years! (yeah)!

Derek Smith, The Stage
“The Zoots (aka Jamie and the First Class) are the kind of talented, young band it’s impossible not to like. Breezing through a tight, brief showcase set, they looked sharp, totally confident in their ability to entertain and sounded as tight as drum. The Who’s My Generation was a great final number – the quality of their music doing all the talking, to whatever generation audience.”
Derek Smith, The Stage
“Five-piece group Zoots could liven up any venue. Formerly known as Jamie & the First Class – and they were always impressive in that musical guise – they’ve developed a new sound and image, belting out some great retro tunes. A charismatic lead singer plus the tight musicianship from fellow members makes for a very impressive band of young guys. And, for having the creativity to change, not stagnate, they deserve praise. ”
The Stage, Mark Ritchie:
“The Zoots are a sixties nostalgia band with a charismatic frontal and a sound typical of the guitar bands of that era. A lovely authentic sixties sound here and surely lots of work for those who love to remember the music from the era of peace and love.”
