Amazingly after almost 18 months The Zarrs began rehearsals few weeks ago after being booked for the prestigious Foodies Festival - and the icing on the cake (there may well be a few food references that Eddie liked to include, 😞 sorry) - and the icing on the cake was that almost immediately we slipped back into the music we’d never been away.
Adding custard to the crumble was the fact that we weren’t being booked for one festival but for four! Two in London, one Oxford and then off to Bristol in September.
I’ve linked the dates, details and tickets here if you’d like to come along for a day of top tv chefs, great food, wine and music. Headliners joining The Zarrs are Scouting For Girls, Toploader and Sophie Ellis-Bextor and tribute bands The Killerz and Ultimate Coldplay plus some really good support acts. Fortunately The Zarrs are in the main support slot so we’ll have time for a beer and a bite to eat after our set lol.
Making sure we’re keeping The Zarrs fuse sparking between festivals we’ve agreed a pop up gig in St Albans at the Blacksmiths Arms in early September to run a couple of new songs as well as our (and some others’) old favourites. A kind of Country Rock flavour with the meat of the two and a half hour set being ours as usual. Be great if you could make it.
Eddie says that we’re going to try to blog more regularly from now on - don’t worry, not every week lol - just when we’ve got something to chat about and not just about The Zarrs, but about other bands and stuff. Maybe even food after the Foodies Festivals lol.
Stay safe until next time (and beyond).
