This event is 21 and over
Join us in the Lounge for a special intimate performance with one of Arizona's finest balladeers -- Mark Zubia of The Pistoleros, Zubia Brothers, and most notably The Chimeras!
Born and raised in the overheated environs of Phoenix, Arizona, Zubia has become a veritable institution in the state, helping lead a series of popular and successful combos!https://www.crescentphx.com/event/1732074/
Notable among these groups were the Chimeras, a powerhouse Zubia formed along with his brother Lawrence, longtime friend Doug Hopkins - co-founder of Gin Blossoms - Scott Andrews and Mark Riggs.
The Chimeras eventually morphed into the Pistoleros and with the name change also came a major label recording and EMI publishing contract. The group’s Hollywood Records debut “Hang On To Nothing” found the Zubias collaborating with a number of notable names, including Gary Louris & Marc Perlman (Jayhawks), Radney Foster (Foster & Lloyd) and Pat DiNizio (Smithereens).
As a member of Pistoleros, MZ will be inducted into The AZ. Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame in 2018
MZ still performs solo, with the Pistoleros and Zubia Brothers - a life-long side project with Lawrence. Mark continues to evolve as a vital American singer, songwriter and artist.
Mark currently splits his time between Scottsdale, AZ and Santa Barbara, CA.
