Zegg

BandRockJam

Progressive, hypnotic, spontaneous, and sometimes quirky, ZEGG mixes jazz, rock, jam, funk, reggae, bluegrass, and blues. ZEGG is capable of the slightest musical nuance or a monstrous groove that rocks the house down to its foundation.

Biography

ZEGG formed by chance—a spontaneous collection of wayward souls who are music fans as much as they are musicians. Soon after the four members of ZEGG connected in 2004, they discovered that they had something special.

“Word of ZEGG’s tight live shows is spreading” - Relix Magazine

“The cd was fantastic…best produced album from a regional band I've heard. These guys are definitely going somewhere." – Mike Zarcone, HarrisburgNightlife.com, 2007

“Raleigh's ZEGG, a collection of five well trained musicians ... is a natural progression in the timeline of groove and jam, applying a tasteful pop gloss to an eclectic, dexterous sound.” — Rich Ivey, Independent Weekly, Raleigh NC, 2007

“This is a band that has a sound to motivate, influence, and drive their audiences into a musical frenzy” - David Figueroa, Former President/Producer, Media Moguls, Live & Local TV

“… soaring harmonies with inventive acoustic and electric songs…” - Relix Magazine

ZEGG’s sound gives gracious nods towards Steely Dan, Zeppelin, Bob Marley, The Allman Brothers, The Talking Heads, and many others. Yet ZEGG has a sound all its own, which is, at best, a funhouse mirror reflection of its influences. The band’s live performances are based on compelling, well-written songs, tight musicianship, and a shared energy with the audience.

ZEGG plays a large selection of diverse material. But whether playing Steely Dan or Snoop Dogg, ‘70s funk or modern hits, or any of their 60+ well-crafted originals, ZEGG is always mindful of keeping the audience wrapped up in the music.

To catch a ZEGG show is to witness the band’s main ingredients: talent, brotherhood, creativity, fun, and soul.

Set List

With a repertoire of over 100 covers and originals, ZEGG caters to just about any venue with material that brings an audience to their feet and gets the crowd dancing. They can also play an entire night of covers from Steely Dan to Snoop Dogg, Dave Matthews to Zeppelin, 60's and 70's funk to modern hits. The unique array of songs sets ZEGG's cover material apart from typical cover bands.

Whether it's a night of all original music, or an evening of all covers, or a mixture of the two, ZEGG's musicianship and animated stage presence will rock the house down to the foundation.
