    You will have four minutes to chat to each date, Four minutes is long enough to see if you click with the person you are talking to and whether you would like to see them again and also short enough if you don’t.

    At the end of each date you have a brief few moments to make some notes on the person you have just dated. This is something to help jog your memory for the post event matching process the next day.

Feel the groove that’s thrilling audiences of stage and screen, in more than 30 countries! Discover why national critics call THE ZOOTS “impressive”, “authentic”, and “impossible not to like”!

    It’s more than a performance – it’s totally ZOOTtastic!

    Meet THE ZOOTS!

    Jamie is the dishy lead singer – but don’t be fooled by his dreamy looks! Jamie has performed on the same bill as Gerry and the Pacemakers and The Searchers, making him the real deal.

    Harriet’s a real cool chick with red hot hair – and energy to match! She taps out neat percussive beats, and sings sweet backing vocals.

    Ben doesn’t play guitar – he makes it sing, daddy-o! Ben’s playing is so hip, even your gran will want to Twist and Shout!

    Tommy is a maestro with the bassline. He pops, picks and plucks the rhythm that keeps THE ZOOTS so tight and sharp!

    Simon plays the drums, and lays the beat behind the hits! Simon makes that drum kit shake, rattle and roll – and how!
