    About the Band

    The Zach Waters Band is a Blues/Rock band from Sacramento, CA. This power trio consists of drummer Steve Pires, bassist Alex Parker, and is fronted by 19 year old guitarist/vocalist Zach Waters. Zach is first and foremost a guitarist, but also plays bass, keyboards, mandolin, and ukulele. Taking inspiration from classic artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Montrose, Led Zeppelin, Robin Trower, and more, this young group is putting their own twist on the classic rock, blues driven genre. 


    "I want to not only create music that directly reflects who I am, I want to explore the music that foreshadows who I will become."- Z.W.


    As of 2019, the band is currently recording their official demo, after finishing up a spring tour and a very busy 2018, topping at 60 shows. The Zach Waters Band has been fortunate enough to share the lighted stage with acts such as: Dokken, Y&T, Pat Travers, Gretchen Menn, Ron Artis II, Chris Cain, Tommy Castro, Jackie Greene, and others! Furthermore, Zach is also an endorsed artist for Ernie Ball Music Man, Tantris Picks, and Thimble Guitar Slides. In 2018, the readers of SN&R Magazine voted the band as the best Blues/Rock act in the Sacramento region. Furthermore, the band has been nominated for 3 Sacramento Music Awards for the 2019 Sammies (Blues, Teen Artist, Live Performer.)
