On our Supplier Spotlight blog this week we welcome Jamie Goddard and Harriet Lowther from The Zoots www.thezoots.com to talk about them and their business
Hi, tell us a bit about you:
I began making music when I was 7. I used to play the drums in the attic of my parents house, it was the only place I could make some noise without disturbing the neighbours! It was at this time, I knew music was what I wanted to be doing. From the attic, I went from gigging with local groups on the local scene, to forming & fronting my own group ‘Jamie & The
First Class’ – www.jamie.fm , a school themed party band. We perform at weddings, corporate events and parties all year round. You’ll find Jamie & The First Class regularly touring throughout the UK as well as touring over 30 other countries too. Harriet joined the business in 2009. She’s a marketing whizz, fine art photography master & has a special way with words. She also has a lot of on stage energy too. You’ll usually find her on twitter: @thezoots
Tell me about your business:
In 2009, fans of Jamie & The First Class asked us if we could put on a 1960s show. We jumped at the chance, worked hard on the show and totally smashed it! They loved it and demanded more! So ‘The Zoots’ were born! The Zoots are so much more than a 1960s tribute show. Our current repertoire spans 6 decades, boasting the best of Rock ‘n’ Roll, pop, funk and soul, and Indie hits. We usually perform a mix of songs from every era and genre. We get booked to perform at all sorts of events all over the globe. This year we’re looking forward to performing in Sweden, Spain & Sardinia as well as up & down the UK.
Last years highlights included; being selected to perform at the exclusive Angry Birds Go launch for Rovio; being chosen to entertain those technical gurus at Nokia for their Christmas party and being asked to perform again at the Sega & EA Sports sales rally. As well as entertaining guests in their hundreds at lots of weddings throughout the UK! This year is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever.
What services do you offer:
are a highly entertaining band, outstanding at entertaining guests for weddings, events and parties. We usually perform between 50 – 60 awesome songs that everyone knows and loves. In two packed one hour shows we will have bring one of the largest and best PA System to every event, much larger and top of the range than many other acts.
Our PA gives great depth to our music, creating music more of an atmosphere. You might not be able to put your finger on why it sounds so good, but you’ll certainly be able to feel it. The Zoots also provide an excellent lighting system which contributes to the atmosphere and feeling of the evening. We have 250 songs in our repertoire ranging from as far back as Dean Martin and Elvis Presley and all the hits from the 60s,70s,80s,90s through to modern day chart hits.
We really love doing what we do and it shines through in every performance, we always have such an amazing response at all of our shows. We like to look our best. always.
