Zakk Knight Band
Zakk Knight is a young local talent and is gaining recognition both locally and nationally. Zakk is 17 years old and firmly rooted in blues with his eyes on the big stage to enable him to share his inspirations through his own original music. Zakk is the 2009 Robert Johnson Foundation New Generation Award Winner and an attendee of the International Blues Challenge. Zakk began playing guitar at age 12 and has since developed his skill as a guitarist, singer, and song writer. With many performances under his belt, Zakk continues to work on new material for his first CD release as his band, backed by Kip Harris on drums and Jeff Kearn on bass, polishes their sound in preparation for upcoming performances.
Outside of recent local performances, the Zakk Knight Band has opened for Kenny Wayne Sheppard, Here Come the Mummies, and has been featured in several radio and television appearances.
Zakk's influences include Joe Bonamassa, Eric Gales, Buddy Guy, Jimi Hendrix, Robert Johnson, BB King, Freddie King, Howlin Wolf, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmy Vaughan, and many more.
World renowned blues musician, Joe Bonamassa, is quoted as saying, "Zakk reminds me of a young Eric Gales."
