Hellllo Saturday, Hello early start!
Today though, we’re up bright and early and heading to a beautiful village called Wilton, in Wiltshire. Just 30 minutes drive from Zoots HQ. We’re performing for Sofia & Richard on their wedding day. … Continue Reading
It’s April and we’ve heard there’s snow falling somewhere, but it looks pretty nice here at Zoots HQ in Wiltshire. We’re up and ready early today, as we have a long trip ‘to the north’ today! We’re performing at Lizzie & Will’s wedding at the (I think you’ll agree) very amazing Colshaw Hall in Cheshire, just look how perfect it is! … Continue Reading
This weekend we said hello to April as we headed to Kent to perform at Nikki’s 40th birthday party in Aylesford in Kent. Nikki and Simon first saw The Zoots at Colin O’Rourke’s 50th Birthday party in Gillingham way back in 2013. Nikki used to work with Jane O’Rourke (Colin’s wife) at Medway Hospital and have known each other for years.
Luckily for us Nikki chose The Zoots to entertain her guests at the big birthday bash!
We just love the weekend. We’re usually off galavanting around the country, or the globe, performing at all sorts of places. And today is no different. We’re off to Rickmansworth in Hertfordshire to at the Golf Captain’s farewell dinner at West Herts Golf Club. Lee is the current Captain of the golf club; he will be handing over to the next Captain at the end of March, so this dinner and evening of music is to celebrate! 🙂

Hello! Me again,
Its been a crazy few months in Zoots world, we were touring non stop from November to the beginning of 2016 and we’ve moved our HQ. We’ve found an article from last November about our excellent cruise to Malta, Barcelona and Cagliari.
I hope you enjoyed our blog from December about our performance in the Broadway Melodies Theatre. When we weren’t busy onstage with our 1960’s show, we were fortunate enough to have some time off to explore the places which we stopped in, boy we’ve been very lucky Zoots this year, and we’ve visited some amazing places. Today I want to tell you a little bit about where we went, and share with you some photos we took on our travels in late November. … Continue Reading
Ok, so we’ve been back three days and I think we’ve just about recovered from what must have been our BEST shows ever, on board the Rhapsody of The Seas.
It began at Zoots HQ in Wiltshire of course, where most of our stories begin. We’ve had a busy few months performing at lots of events including Natalie & Rhys’ wedding, our awesome halloween show at Stamford Corn Exchange, as well as lots of other performances we just really haven’t had the time to tell you about. You may remember from our latest band blog post, we’re moving house, as well as having a full diary of performances and taking bookings well in to 2017, we’re pretty busy! So if you’re thinking about booking The Zoots, we’d recommend getting in touch asap!

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. … Continue Reading
It’s Thursday today isn’t it? Or perhaps it’s not. We’ve been so busy performing overseas and ship hopping with Royal Caribbean’s fleet of pretty impressive ships, that we’re not sure where we are or quite what day it is. We’ve gotten used to falling asleep in one country and waking up in another. We’ve become accustomed to the ever changing view from outside our window. And we’ve become very fond of having shorts, t-shirts and summer hats making up our ‘every day wear’ as we travel from Greece, to Italy to France to Spain. We’ve got a little too familiar of the feeling of sand beneath our toes as we relax after a show on a beach in whichever country we happen to arrive in that day. And we’ve become all so used to the roar of 1,500 guests as they shout for an encore following our sixties show.
Last week was blooming brilliant. We had such a fab time performing for Steve and Laura at Pinewood Studios and only yesterday (Friday) we had the absolute honour of performing for our good friends Simon & Emily on their wedding day at Priston Mill. I don’t think we could be any happier.
Today, Saturday, we’re headed towards a little town called Chorleywood. We’ve actually passed through here many moon ago when we were performing at Fitness Fiesta in Hemsby last year. It’s a lovely place, lots of fields lots of green. Today we’re performing for Phil and Rainee on their wedding day at North Hill Farm and we’re really looking forward to it. We’ve been liaising with Phil & Rainee about their big day since they got in touch in August last year. … Continue Reading
It’s Thursday the 2nd of April and spring has made a brief appearance. Somewhere some birds are tweeting and I’m pretty sure the sun was shining a bit. Today we’re off to Grims Dyke Hotel to perform for the lovely Dani & Stuart for their wedding day. Dani had seen us perform a couple of times (back in 2011 and 2013) and was keen to have us as their wedding band. Dani got in touch waaaaaay back in February 2014 (remember it?). We were available and we said yes! The date was in the diary! … Continue Reading
