It usually only takes one show to understand why Zach Nugent is one of the most sought after guitarists in the live music scene.  After his days touring as de-facto Garcia expert with Melvin Seals & JGB, he continues to build his dedicated following, putting together and leading multifaceted groups for special runs and festival appearances. Never one to shy away from new and challenging ideas, Nugent is now bringing his latest incarnations, Disco Dead, and Fire on The Mountain to The Parrot stage  Fans can expect a first night full of disco infused classic Grateful Dead,  and a second night of Grateful Dead related album recreation, and a fresh surprise every show.
Zach Nugent’s playing is soulful, rootsy and organic, the kind of sound that grows out of the music naturally and effortlessly. He gigs almost nightly, singing and improvising in different projects around his home-base of Burlington, Vermont and around the country. A lifelong Grateful Dead fan, Zach has a musical resume with that one vital, matchless feature: As far back as he can remember, music has been an integral part of his life.
