TONIGHT’S CONCERT FEATURES PETTY THEFT AND THE BIRD DOGS

Petty Theft – a Dallas based encomium to Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers.

The sounds of Petty Theft are the closest fans will get to the real thing – they rock it with purpose. These guys are slavishly devoted to recreating the rock sounds of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers.

The Bird Dogs – From the backwoods of Argyle, Texas, George Dunham and the Bird Dogs have sprung onto the Texas music scene to deliver an old-fashioned, good-time country arse-whippin’ to all the fine music-lovin’ folk. The music of George Dunham delivers a powerful blend of Texas-country, gritty rock and three-part harmonies, with songs that reflect strong family ties, love and loss, and hope for the future.

The concerts are FREE with the price of Zoo admission and begin at 7 p.m. Food will be available for purchase, along with soft drinks, cold beer and wine.

TONIGHT’S CONCERT FEATURES THE RELATIVES

The Relatives – Call it Gospel Funk! In truth, the sound of The Relatives is so much more. Formed in 1970 by veteran Dallas Gospel singer Rev. Gean West and his brother Tommie, The Relatives’ sound bridges the gap between traditional Gospel, Soul and Psychedelia. In the early 1970’s, they recorded three obscure singles and a previously unreleased session—all of which are compiled on the acclaimed 2009 anthology, Don’t Let Me Fall. The release of the anthology brought The Relatives back together as a band, planting the seeds for their 2013 Yep Roc release, The Electric Word, which was recorded and produced by Jim Eno of Spoon. The concerts are FREE with the price of Zoo admission and begin at 7 p.m. Food will be available for purchase, along with soft drinks, cold beer and wine.
