Swamp Zen plays a free show at 9 p.m. in the 7800 Bar & Grill at Kirkwood Mountain Resort.
Swamp Zen combines the funk of James Brown, the songwriting of Van Morrison, and the winding improvisation of the Grateful Dead to create their own brand of original dance music. They honor the jam band tradition by never playing a song the same way twice, but are consistent in their superb musicianship and in delivering a high-energy show that always brings people to the dance floor.
Their music is never boring as it moves seamlessly between styles including funk, jazz, Latin, country, techno, reggae, and more. Most importantly they have a blast on stage, and this contagious attitude is spread throughout the audience to make for a shared musical experience unlike any other. Swamp Zen has shared the stage with such national touring acts as; G-Love & Special Sauce, Hot Buttered Rum, The Charlie Hunter Trio, Orgone, The Mother Hips, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, March Forth, Tea Leaf Green and Zach Deputy.
