Happy 41st Anniversary to Lincoln's Historic Zoo Bar. Phone Cam Snapshots from Zoo Bar 41st Anniversary Saturday night, where Delbert McClinton and his bad-ass band put on an amazing show (but for gosh sake, ladies, leave your bras on!) and our own Josh Hoyer &Josh Hoyer and The Shadowboxers closed the fest out in just as bad-ass a fashion with their own set including new material, stomping horn grooves and Josh Hoyer putting it down from the heart.... while adding stage dive to his sense of showmanship.
Rod Piazza & the Mighty Flyers headlined the great Friday Night lineup showing that they are still one of the best blues bands working today!
THANK YOU Pete, Jeff, Amanda, all the Zoo Bar staff, volunteers and family, all the stage crew who scrambled to take care of business during the sudden downpour that struck during Delbert's set and all the fans for being very cool. This event is always a great one. I know Larry, Magic, Uncle Nick and folks like Luther, Albert, and Doc and Cowboy Larry were all groovin' with us this week and weekend. ZOO BAR! The one and only. Thank ya, babies! Now, don't forget to come out and support the bar during the week, they still need you down there supporting and listening to the great music they are bringing in 6 nights a week!
