The Zombies Coming to WHBPAC, 8/16
Psychedelic pop-rock touchstones, The Zombies with Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent, perform at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center on Saturday, August 16 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $65, $80, $90 and are available online at www.whbpac.org.
The legendary UK group The Zombies infiltrated the airwaves with sophisticated melodies, breathy vocals, and jazzy keyboard riffs in 1960's chart-topping singles like "She's Not There" and "Time of the Season." They were the second UK group following the Beatles to score a #1 hit in America. Generations of new bands have cited The Zombies' work as pop touchstones, including such artists as Neko Case and Nick Cave (who have recorded "She's Not There" for the popular HBO series True Blood), She & Him, Beck, Belle and Sebastian, The Black Angels, The Fleet Foxes, Beach House and The Beautiful South.
The band's swan-song album Odessey & Oracle recently ranked #100 in Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums of All Time" and last year, RollingStone.com & VEVO debuted The Zombies' first-ever music video for "Any Other Way." The Zombies also announced their nomination to the 2014 Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame.
Joined by bassist Jim Rodford (formerly of ARGENT and The Kinks), Rodford's son Steve on drums, and renowned session guitarist Tom Toomey, founding members Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent have resurrected The Zombies for a new generation of fans on their new album Breathe Out, Breathe In.
