The surreal saga of Dave's gutted Gibson

It's a story that could easily have ended on anything but a high note. A traveling musician walks up to an airport baggage claim to the screeching sound of metal on metal and the horrific sight of his beloved 1965 Gibson ES-335 guitar (valued at $10,000) being mangled. For guitarist Dave Schneider, it was the most painful part of what turned into a surreal 20-hour journey from Maine to Florida.

Schneider has been 'Captain' of The Zambonis for more than 20 years. The band has released seven albums of infectious rock songs devoted to hockey, life and love.

The Zambonis

Hockey Rock masters score hat trick on new LP

What started as a fun 'what if?' proposition has evolved into a joyous and celebrated institution. More than 20 years after forming, The Zambonis, the world's foremost purveyors of Hockey Rock, have returned with their best album to date, 'Five Minute Major (in D Minor).'

Hockey fans are as passionate about the sport as rock fans are about the music, and The Zambonis have offered the best of both worlds over seven hockey-themed albums.

'Five Minute Major' faces off with 'Brass Bonanza' the theme for the band's beloved Hartford Whalers for more than 20 years. The Zambonis' version combines surf guitar and drums, horns and even an electric sitar to form the definitive rendition of the happy, catchy tune which continues to be played during games in the band's home state of Connecticut.
