In a storied building built in 1921 sits the ZOO Bar, a narrow nightspot that’s been a staple for live music in downtown Lincoln since 1973.

Some big time acts have walked through the hallowed club’s doors including Buddy Guy, Bo Diddley, Albert Collins and Otis Rush. 

Throughout 2016, a variety of bands will play on the same stage graced by those blues legends in honor of ZOO Bar’s 43rd Anniversary.

& C'mon  In The ZOO BAR!
1925 - 2015
“The Zoo Bar is one of my all time favorite bars and it’s also one of my all time favorite places to play the blues. It’s just great in every way. I could fill pages of all the good times I’ve had there and all the reasons it’s a great place, but the short version is that the staff and the owners have always been really nice to the musicians and the patrons are all real blues lovers and all together that makes it a great place to play."

Born in South St. Louis, Mo. Mike Zito grew up in a working class home with a dire love of music. It was his escape and way out. After a decade working in a local guitar shop, Mike learned his craft from the ground up playing in clubs 7 nights a week.

"She has been a mainstay of the Kansas City/Lawrence music community for decades, and she showed why during a 75-minute set that showcased her many talents: as a singer, a songwriter and a musician. Her refined blend of blues, soul, R&B and roots music aroused a crowd of a couple hundred, especially the new song, "Stand Up," a feel-good anthem that lit up the room."
