No failure to entertain for Zac Brown Band

Threat of rain fails to dampen crowds

BANGOR - It seems Mother Nature likes it 'Chicken Fried' and held off the rain for the 12,000-plus attendees of the Zac Brown Band's (ZBB) June 2 performance at the Bangor Waterfront Pavilion. Braving the cold and predictions of rain, fans flocked to see this special blend of Southern music hospitality.

The show opened with two young artists from Atlanta, Ga., signed to the ZBB label, Southern Ground. Nic Cowan was energetically fresh, mixing funk, rock, and reggae. His songwriting is a smart twist of smirk and style evident in his single 'Hardheaded' and the humorous 'Double Wide.' Sonia Leigh, reminiscent of a young Melissa Etheridge, had a sound somewhere between garage band and honky-tonk. She was all rock n' roll on 'My Name is Money,' but true country with her single 'Bar.' Ending with a cover of 'Born to Run,' she was dead on with her gutsy rendition of this classic.

Zac Brown Band to play Bangor Waterfront

BANGOR - After an eventful year on the charts, the Grammy-Award winning Zac Brown Band is hitting the road once again this summer. They will visit the Bangor Waterfront Pavilion on Saturday June 2. 

Zac Brown Band's second major label studio album 'You Get What You Give' (Atlantic/Southern Ground Artists, Inc.) was released on September 21, 2010 and debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album features guest appearances by Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett.

"It's a defining record...Every step of it's done the right way and I expect people are really going to love this record and see the depth of our musicianship, we're always growing,' said Brown to the Associated Press. 'Not that we've arrived at any grand finale or anything, but the progress from this last record to this one, it's tremendous and I'm proud of it."
