ZZ TOP – “That Little Ol’ Band from Texas” has been at it for well over a half century, delivering rock, blues, and boogie on the road and in the studio to millions of devoted fans. With iconography as distinctive as their sound, ZZ TOP is virtually synonymous with beards, hot rod cars, spinning guitars, and that magic keychain, all of which transcend geography and language.
311 was formed in 1990 in Omaha, Nebraska by five friends: Nick Hexum (vocals/guitar), Tim Mahoney (guitar), SA Martinez (vocals/dj), Chad Sexton (drums) and P-Nut (bass). 33 years later, they’re still rocking together. Widely regarded as one of the most entertaining and dynamic live bands in the U.S., 311 mixes rock, rap, reggae, and funk into their own unique, hybrid sound. As veterans of 2,000 shows across 27 countries, 311 is one of the longest running original lineups in rock, alongside legends like U2 and Radiohead.
