Zac Brown Band Brings A Southern Voice to LA's Troubadour

The Zac Brown Band plays over 200 shows a year, and as one journalist put it, they "might just be one of the hardest-working group of guys in the business. How else do you describe a guy who can make his band sound like Jimmy Buffett, Bob Marley, Robert Earl Keen and James Taylor, often within the course of two or three songs?" (Post Courier, SC)

Equal parts country, bluegrass, southern rock, pop and reggae, the Zac Brown Band has a sound that rocks crowds everywhere it plays. "It's kind of crazy how we can go to a place where no one's heard of us before and by the time we leave people are singing the songs, " bandleader Zac Brown says.

While the Zac Brown Band has opened for everyone from Sugarland and The Allman Brothers, to B.B. King and Etta James, the group is in California in July supporting Alan Jackson with additional shows scheduled at the Konocti Harbour Amphitheater in Kelseyville (7.25); Pacific Amphitheater in Costa Mesa (7.26); and at the Midstate Fair in Paso Robles (7.27).

The Zac Brown Band brings its distinctive sound to L.A.'s Troubadour on July 21st performing songs from the forthcoming album 'The Foundation, ' set for release in late summer.
