Zack Zadek statement: "I'm incredibly excited to be playing such a truly exciting venue. What I'm really hoping for this concert is to pair some interesting character stories with the kinds of music that moves and inspires me, be it electronic house music or straight up piano rock. Also, the talent of the people who are coming on board is just such an exciting combination."
