“That Little Ol’ Band From Texas,” the longest running major rock band with original personnel intact, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, ZZ Topare set to roll into Kalamazoo for a concert Wednesday, October 30, at Wings Event Center. There are three of them — Billy F Gibbons, Dusty Hill, Frank Beard — and they’re still very much together after 50 years of rock, blues, and boogie on the road and in the studio. “Yeah,” says Billy, guitarist extraordinaire, “we’re the same three guys, bashing out the same three chords.”
With songs like “La Grange,” “Tush,” “Gimme All Your Lovin’,” “Sharp Dressed Man,” “Legs” and others, ZZ TOP’s music is always instantly recognizable, eminently powerful, profoundly soulful and 100% Texas American. The band’s support for the blues has been unwavering and remains as rock solid as the music they continue to play. They have sold millions of records, have been officially designated as Heroes of The State of Texas, have been referenced in countless cartoons and sitcoms, and are true rock icons.
