Canmore’s hot funk-rock band uses a smooth dose of tenor saxophone as they bounce around from funky rhythms to improvised grooves and some good ol’ rock n’ soul.
The band’s diversity is its strength. With four permanent members who are each born an even decade apart, Zebra has a unique fusion of influences. Joe (saxophone) was raised on classic vinyl, Dave (drums) gets some extra low end from those cassette tapes in the 80’s, Mike (bass) was rocking the discman on his way to school and Jake (guitar) was spoiled with the onset of free digital music floating forever in the clouds. Despite these generational differences, the band settled on their common passion for strong groove and music that moves.
The band shares this passion with their audience through their live show. With a mix of originals/covers and genres to please a variety of audiences, the band works with the crowd to spark joy in the room.
The band released their debut EP “Zebra” in December 2019 and a follow-up EP “Fall Fly” in January 2022.
