I first saw the Zac Brown Band live during the summer of 2015, when they were on their JEKYLL + HYDE album tour and hosting their famous “eat and greet” pre-show experience. Their concert was a fun, two hour long country sing-along, perfect for a warm summer night. Given the recent weather here in LA (autumn, where are you?) I don’t expect the Band’s upcoming concerts on October 28th and 29th (this weekend) at the Hollywood Bowl will be anything less than their summer-night-perfect!

The Zac Brown Band first rose to prominence with their debut single, “Chicken Fried,” off of their 2008 album The Foundation. Led by frontman Zac Brown himself, a known advocate of both military families and children with special needs, the band has a knack for writing and releasing songs infused with essences of hospitality, warmth, grounded-ness, and down-home fun – an overall different tone from the classic “man’s country” that’s frequently showcased on the radio.

Currently on the road promoting their newest alum Welcome Home, released on May 12th of this year, Los Angeles is  the last stop on the band’s 40+ date tour schedule! While the album itself hasn’t been their most popular to date (it’s the only one of their albums that hasn’t gone platinum) the band knows how to put on a show, and will undoubtedly sing some recent hits like “My Old Man,” as well as older favorites such as “Colder Weather” – my personal pick of best Zac Brown Band song – “Knee Deep,” and “Sweet Annie.”

For a night of excellent musicianship, fun, and southern charm, be sure to head to the Hollywood Bowl!
