Why would anyone remember June 12, 1994? Well, that’s the day of the famous O.J. Simpson slow-speed chase. It was also the day of The Zoo’s very first live engagement and they’ve been running at high-speed ever since. Their skyrocketing popularity has been highlighted by an appearance on TRL (Total Request Live) hosted by Carson Daly, as well as appearances on MTV’s Ultimate Cover Band contest, the latter of which culminated in The Zoo reaching the prize winners’ platform.
The Zoo, long a nightclub favorite, has become increasingly popular on the corporate and private event circuit. The New York Islanders have been fans of the band for years and The Zoo has not only performed for the New York Islander organization, but was even chosen to perform at the National Hockey League’s “Winter Classic” at Fenway Park in Boston.
