Zach Longoria Project with Drew Allan



November 18, 2017
8:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Main Ballroom
31 West Church Street
Newark, OH 43055 United States

A 9-piece (often more) band from Louisville, Kentucky, the Zach Longoria Project has soul in its veins and southern harmony in its heart. Weaving together elements of jazz and old-school R&B, the band creates a distinctive sound they like to call Kentucky Fried Soul.

ZLP came together in 2013 as a collaboration of passionate, driven musicians with a commitment to making good music and being good to each other. The result is an incredibly close-knit group of kindred spirits—and it shines through in their music.

In July 2014, ZLP released their self-titled EP and were featured on a “Live Lunch” series sponsored by WFPK, Louisville’s alternative radio station. A highland of 2015 was in June; ZLP played the Bunbury Music Festival in Cincinnati, sharing the same stage as the Avett Brothers, Lindsey Stirling & the Black Keys.

ZLP had the privledge in July 2017 to play Louisville’s own Waterfront Wednesday, sharing the stage with Strand of Oaks and Low Cut Connie- what a terrific show.
The band’s most recent release is Up Up & Away, released in June of 2016. They’re not wasting any time though- The next album is well in the works and ZLP is looking forward to sharing it with the world in the not-so-distant future.

Drew Allan

Drew and A.C met at a local Open Mic in 2008. While Drew was just getting his feet wet, A.C emerged from a sea of experience and wisdom. The two would eventually form the duo that many have called nothing short of MAGIC!

The DUO takes what Drew already does and adds the amazing sound of A.C Collins on Sax. Together they provide a truly organic experience everyone is talking about.

We’ve played events for Nationwide Insurance, CHASE, Bob Evans, Whole Foods, Fresh Thyme Market, Leather Lips Yacht Club, and more.

A.C plays Alto, Tenor and Saprano saxes along with other various woodwind instruments. He has recorded over 70 original Blues, Jazz, Gospel, and R&B tunes since the early 90’s.

Early in his career A.C shared the stage with the likes of James Brown and Smokey Robinson. He has studied music at OHIO STATE, Capitol University, Howard University Washington D.C. and Panama Canal Zone University.
