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, Robert Cray and Otis Rush. 

Throughout 2017, a variety of bands will play on the same stage graced by those blues legends in honor of ZOO Bar’s 44th Anniversary.

“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."

There ain't no party like a Chubby Party

Saturday July 29:
                         James Armstrong Band - 6PM  Video
Armstrong has a confident stage presence that combines grace with mischief. Few blues artists know how to play the crowd as James can, shifting dynamics from a whisper to a growl. Wherever he travels around the world his magnetism continues to hush a noisy rabble or entice a crowd to follow him out into the street or down the length of a beach.
