Known for a distinct style and complex sound, ZZ Top is near universally known as a key figure in American rock and roll. And, this June they will be stopping by the Artpark in Niagara Falls to give one of their signature performances.
ZZ Top: Rock & Roll Legends
ZZ Top is one of the best selling artists in history. With global sales in excess of 50 million, ZZ Top relies on its crassness, innuendos, double entendres, lyrical motifs, and strong blues roots to create a performance that is best seen live. Incorporating traditional blues, rock, dance-rock, new wave, synthesizers, and punk rock into their sound, ZZ Top is known for creating music that simultaneously defies expectation and speaks towards a familiar experience. In addition, with the music found in movies and shows, it has become a backdrop to a classic American experience.
A Gradual Rise To Fame And Becoming A Legend
Formed in 1969, ZZ Top is one of the few big bands that still has its original line-up. Billy Gibbons on lead vocalist and guitar is the band leader, while Dusty Hill acts as back up singer and base guitar player. Exhibiting technical mastery from early on, Dusty and Billy teamed up with drummer Frank Beard to create a sensational 3 man band. Beginning with blues, ZZ Top quickly moved to rock and role, as well as synthesizers.
Releasing a number of successful albums, ZZ Top continued to grow and expand on its musical repertoire, eventually returning back to more classical rock sounds. Even as they continue to age, the quality of their performances live as well as their amazing stage presence continues to captivate audiences wherever they go. A part of the American experience, ZZ Top has defined itself through both awards and musical quality as one of titans of rock and roll.
