|Bio of the Artist|
|This raucously wild, 5 piece string band (guitar, mandolin, dobro, banjo, upright bass) is pioneering a new genre of music their fans are calling "ZooGrass"!!! It's a high-energy, gritty-urban-bluegrass with strong elements of folk, blues, ragtime and jazz thrown in for good measure. Simply put: "HDATZ embodies what it means to put down your troubles for a while and get caught up in a laid down groove that's sure to bring a smile to your face and a sway to your hips. Good times!"|
Over the past two years, Hot Day at the Zoo has earned its reputation as being one of the finest original acts in Boston. They have acquired residencies all over the greater Boston area and beyond: the Burren in Somerville, MA; Capo’s in Lowell, MA; Tammany Hall in Worcester, MA; Harper’s Ferry in Allston, MA; Barley Pub in Dover, NH, and most recently at the Plough and Stars in Cambridge, MA. They have shared the stage with such nationally touring acts as: StrangeFolk, Max Creek, SlipKnot, Jackass Flats, Cast Iron Filter, Hot Butter Rum String Band, Tony Trischka Band, David Amram, and Peter Prince.
