When asked to fill in on bass guitar for a jam session, Ben began learning the instrument, and the foursome evolved slowly from a hard rock-inspired throwback machine into a bluesy alternative outfit. In the fall of 2016, Josh Worsham, formerly of Jesse Ray & The Carolina Catfish, was inducted as a new drummer, and the outfit transformed further, taking inspiration from punk rock, grunge, and jam bands. Today, The Zannies are known for their tight instrumentals, unusual lyrics, and energetic performances. FREE SHOW
