Calling all old school music lovers! Remember “More Bounce to the Ounce” or “My Computer Love” just a couple of the hits Zapp Band had you grooving to back in the day. Join us for a stroll down memory lane as national recording artists known as Zapp unleashes funky, high-energy music with a contagious groove built for dancing, loving and good times.
Made up of masterful musicians who have been getting down together since
the late 1970s, the group’s sizzling chemistry can be attributed to the fact that it has always been a joyful family affair. The band started with Lil Roger and Lil Lester in 1962, which became Lil Roger and the Vels, grew into Roger and the Human Body from 1974-1978, then became a full-fledged movement as Zapp. Now bandleader Lester Troutman, Sr. (drums), Terry “Zapp” Troutman (talkbox/keyboards/bass), Bart Thomas (talkbox/vocals/keyboards/bass), Dale DeGroat (musical direction/keyboards/vocals), Thomas Troutman (keyboards/vocals), Riccardo Bray (guitar) and Anthony Arrington (sax) join to carry on the legacy of a tight-knit group of expert players and funk, soul and party band pioneers.
All tickets purchased for the postponed June 3, 2017 concert date will be honored at the rescheduled event on August 19.
