Zach Deputy Brings One-Man Dance Party and Two-Day Recording Session to Green Parrot Stage
Zach Deputy, the larger-than-life, impossibly-upbeat solo South Carolinian with the infectious smile and looping technology brings his one-man dance party, the “Zach Attack” to the Green Parrot faithful
The music of Zach Deputy’s Puerto Rican, Cruzan and Irish heritage was cooked up in the South Carolina heat. The Calypso rhythms and folk songs of St. Croix competed with the R&B/soul of pioneers like James Brown and Ray Charles for space on the family stereo. As Deputy honed his craft, a unique hybrid of these influences emerged, ultimately creating the signature Zach Deputy sound.
To bring this sound to the stage, the big, impossibly upbeat South Carolinian with the infectious smile puts on a solo show–enhanced by looping technology– that is essentially a one-man dance party offering up what he calls “Island-infused, Drum ‘n’ Bass, Gospel-Ninja-Soul” to the enthusiastic crowds of dancers who flock to clubs from coast-to-coast. It is these late night dance parties–more than 250 per year– that have made Zach Deputy one of the hottest up-and-coming performers on the camping festival circuit and “jam band” scene.
Deputy is an exceptionally tasty guitar player with a tremendous vocal range, natural stage presence and contagious playfulness and humor; layers of hip-hop inspired vocal beat-boxing fill in for the drums, rhythmic guitar tracks in different tunings flesh out the melody and the thump of the bass. Soaring lead vocals, harmonies, choruses and guitar leads–all of this made possible through simple technology, but all of it realized and delivered by a skill and mastery of technique and made pure through the injection of warm, heartfelt soul.
