Loaded Concerts & WBAB 102.3 Present: ZEBRA- A Hammerheads Reunion Saturday, January 14th

The Legendary ZEBRA Performing Their Debut Album In It’s Entirety LIVE at Mulcahy’s in Wantagh

Wantagh, NY (November, 2016) — This winter, Loaded Concerts and WBAB 102.3 will present legendary rock band ZEBRA (A Hammerheads Reunion) performing their 1983 debut self-titled album (which went GOLD and became the fastest selling debut album in the history of Atlantic Records) live at Mulcahy’s Pub & Concert Hall on Saturday, January 14th! The band will be joined by Long Island’s own Vixen for an amazing night full of hard rock classics!

Zebra came out of New Orleans in early 1975. The trio, consisting of Randy Jackson, Felix Hanemann and Guy Gelso, concocted their moniker from a 1926 Vogue magazine cover and soon won over the South and East Coast. Their mainstream debut on Atlantic Records was in 1983 with their eponymous album, produced by Jack Douglas (John Lennon, Aerosmith, Cheap Trick) and highlighted by the singles “Tell Me What You Want” and “Who’s Behind The Door?” Zebra got their start on the US East Coast club circuit, frequently playing at clubs on Long Island. 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”).

Zebra had been noticed by local colleges and even had some of their early original performances recorded by WBAB, culminating in the inclusion of one of their songs on a release of “WBAB Homegrown Album”, which commemorated some of the station’s best local acts and performances culled from their on-air “Homegrown Hour” program.

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.

With this great chance to catch one of the pivotal hard rock acts of the 1980’s through today, make sure to catch ZEBRA LIVE performing the self-titled debut album in it’s entirety on Saturday, January 14th at Mulcahy’s Pub & Concert Hall- 3232 Railroad Avenue, Wantagh NY!
