Their First West Coast Run In Three Decades, Original Members Randy Jackson, Felix Hanemann, and Guy Gelso Leave West Coast Fans Elated
New York, NY (February, 2018) — 30 years in the making, legendary rock band ZEBRA played to capacity crowds at both The World Famous Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood CA and Count’s Vamp’d in Las Vegas, performing their debut album IN ITS ENTIRETY, plus classics, fan favorites, and an unforgettable set of Led Zeppelin! The band played for over 2 hours giving long time West Coast fans–who have waited 30 years to see them–MORE than their money’s worth.
Born in Louisiana and relocating to Long Island in 1977, Zebra toured the East Coast relentlessly before getting signed by Atlantic Records Jason Flom in 1982. 2018 marks 35 Years since the release of the first Zebra Album in 1983. That album, their self titled debut, was the fastest selling debut album in Atlantic Records history at that point. In celebration of 35 years since it’s release, Zebra will continue to play it in its entirety this year, plus classics, fan faves and a set of Led Zeppelin that will blow your mind!
MORE TOUR DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED!
The band started their career by playing covers of Led Zeppelin, The Moody Blues and Rush songs, and it was their early fans’ reaction to their Led Zeppelin renditions that helped convince the band to bring their act to New York. They had introduced their original material into their cover sets years before they were signed to Atlantic Records, including “The La La Song,” “Free” and “Bears” (originally entitled “The Bears are Hibernating”).
The band continued to tour throughout the 1980s, but took a temporary break in the early 1990s. Randy Jackson formed his solo band Randy Jackson’s China Rain, and released its only album in the year 1993. Zebra finally reunited in 1997 and released Zebra IV in 2003, their first album of all-new material since 1986. A DVD of live performances, mostly from a show at the House of Blues in New Orleans, was released in the summer of 2007. On July 10, 2010, during their 35th-anniversary performance at New Orleans’ Mahalia Jackson Theater, Zebra was inducted into The Louisiana Music Hall of Fame. On October 8, 2012, the band was inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame.
