On stage and screen!

Zac Brown Band not only dazzles, they bend the mind with nearly non-stop, epic music.  There is no extravagant showmanship.  Solid, spirited songs flow brilliantly in a range from body-moving jams to melodious and lyrical reflections.  Especially powerful and rewarding is the extent to which each band member contributes.  While recognized as a country band, the playlist encompasses a stunning mix of genres–each keeps audience enthusiasm at peak levels.  Superb drumming, stunning guitar licks, and full-bodied fiddle textures resonate wonderfully with Zac Brown’s voice.

The second night of Bash on the Bay will be remembered as a Put-in-Bay show for the ages because Zac Brown Band gave it their all and then some!

The concert atmosphere at Put-in-Bay Airport (3w2) underscores the magnificence of outdoor, summer events on a jewel of an island.  Brad Paisley and Zac Brown Band are to be commended for delivering a rewarding and satisfying musical experience.
