(General Admission)

ZOOFUNKYOU

*********************

Zoofunkyou

In the Summer of 2012, Derek Dare founded the power trio initially known as Zoo. Believe it or not, instead of playing guitar he was the bass player at the time. Matt Coglianese joined in the fall and as Derek moved over to his native instrument the band began to develop a searingly intense musical connection.

Within a few short years, Zoo came blazing into some of the largest and most revered venues in Chicago like the House of Blues, Martyr’s, and Metro as they began developing a collection of songs released on their eponymous first recording. Jake Hennessey entered the fold on percussion in January 2015, and later in the summer became the drummer as the name changed to Zoofunkyou. Shortly afterward, an EP called “Island #36” was released at the Bottom Lounge with a band called Butter opening the night. Little did they know that night that Bryan Scheinkopf - guitarist of Butter and another early Zoo contemporary, Bullfights on Acid - would join the band in October of 2016.

Throughout the years and changes, the psychedelic stew has become more and more spicy, especially with the addition of the “Psychedelic Toot-Bois”, the steaziest horn section this side of the Mississippi. In 2017 the band played at North Coast Music Festival on the same stage as Primus after winning Chicago’s “Toast of the Coast” competition. Within the next 5 months, they began taking their modern day blues-infused psychedelic soulfunk music out on the road. Since then, the band has performed in 26 states! Zoofunkyou has built a devoted fanbase known as the Zoofü crew who brought them all the way to Summer Camp Music Festival in 2019. Derek, Matt, Jake and Bryan continue to tantalize audiences with their stunning blend of stimulating musical explorations and dynamic sounds.
