Tribute to the Oscar Peterson Trio

This semester we’ve been working very hard on learning the music of the Oscar Peterson Trio from albums such as We Get Requests and Sound of the Trio. It has been a great learning experience and extremely tough challenge! In March we traveled to New York City and performed an Oscar Peterson Trio tribute show and we are excited to have the opportunity to do another performance in our home town of Tallahassee, FL at B-Sharps Jazz Club on May 2nd.  We’re also currently planning our 2014 Summer Tour and will have more information on that soon!

Ending Summer & Beginning Fall

We had a very successful summer tour. Great Venues, Great Shows and made great connections. ZBT seems to be functioning on a new level of energy. We’re continuing our momentum with a busy fall and the booking of our next tour. We will be playing every Saturday starting this week, one week at Front Porch and one week at Alchemy. ZBT will also be hotel Duval twice a month. We have some shows in the work too, we are confirmed for a two night showcase with singer Derrick Koelsch at the Fox in Tampa September 6th and 7th. We’re also working on some possible shows around town. ZBT is planning our next tour in early December and hoping to add some new cities to our usual itinerary. Please stay tuned.

ZBT Summer Tour 2013

We will be heading out on our summer tour in early August. We have some familiar dates booked. First up will be two nights back in our favorite city, Chicago. The weekend will be round out with a night back at Cliff Bells in Detroit. We then make an exciting return to the unrivaled Blues Alley in Washington D.C. The tour takes a pleasant unfamiliar turn with a first time appearance at the brilliant new jazz club, The Side Door, located in Connecticut. We cap off our time on the road with another night in Cleveland with our good friend Bobby Selvaggio on saxophone. We’re very excited to get back to traveling and sharing our music with you!

ZBT has just returned from our successful Midwestern tour. We spent twelve days traveling thousands of miles for five special shows. The toured kick off in Cleveland with our new friend Bobby Slevaggio at Nighttown. The night opened up with two of Bobby’s student combos from Kent State. We finished up with one fantastic set of our arrangements featuring Bobby on saxophone. Tuesday ZBT headed to Washington DC for our show at the historic Blues Alley. This listening room, tucked away in a Georgetown alley, set the perfect environment for the tours best performance. We left high on excitement from one special performance, yet grateful for the opportunity to perform at the worlds longest running jazz venue. ZBT used the next two days off to make our way to Chicago for Friday and Saturday performances at Andy’s Jazz Club. The venue was not new to us, as it was apart of our last tour, but we enjoyed the warm familiarity of our favorite city. Performing in Chicago, especially a large packed room at Andy’s, will always be high on our list. Shopping for jazz by day at the Jazz Record Mart and performing by night at Andy’s. ZBT finished the weekend and the tour in Detroit at Cliff Bell’s. The city and club where new to us, but we quickly felt welcomed and ready to put on a show. This venue had a unique stage, a large sitting area and an amazing restaurant. This is another club we can’t wait to add to our next tour. 
ZBT wants to thank every single fan for their support, especially all of those who came out to support us on our Midwestern tour. We are already planning our next go around, so stay tuned for the dates and locations!
