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 2015, a variety of bands will play on the same stage graced by those blues legends in honor of ZOO Bar’s 42nd anniversary.

“Even if you walked into the Zoo Bar without knowing anything about it other than music is played here, one would know they were on very hallowed ground. … It was/is one of those venues that when on the road, you'd swear it was Saturday night on a Monday or a Tuesday. I love love love this joint but, the room, the name are nada without its people, its staff and its audience, that give that body a soul.”
Grammy Award winner Bubba Hernandez
