Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?
We could write a book on this subject. A bride fainted at a recent wedding so we played our first set without a bride which was strange, luckily she recovered it for the second set. We had a winter wedding at Beaumont House in Windsor where the snow prevented 70% of the guests couldn't get to the venue. When we arrived the bride and groom were so grateful we'd made it through the snow filled roads, we were invited to the wedding breakfast and given our own table.
What is the soundtrack to your life?
The Zoots have loads of party tricks so you'll have to come to one our shows to experience them.
