Featuring …  Jonny Z

Lead Guitar & Vocals

Hey Y’all! Look what Dee Dee found! The newest member of The Shakers, Lead Guitarist Jonathan “Jonny Z’ Zurek. As 20 year professional, originally hailing from Chicago, Jonny’s early years on the guitar were inspired by The Blues, and as his career has progressed, his tasteful style has incorporated Rock, Country, Jam Band styles, Fusion, Jazz, Bluegrass, as well as a good dose of Punk and Hard Rock.

“Stevie Ray Vaughan has always been my Guitar Hero”, replied Jonny when asked why he started playing the guitar, “I was blown away by the Soul that man possessed. His combination of razor sharp precision, absolute Earth shaking tone, and soulful singing was nothing like I had ever heard. I’ve been chasing that straight from the heart approach to playing ever since.”

Jonny brings a new sound and soul to The Shakers. His love for playing, and versatile, powerful approach has added an element to our sound that we are very excited to add to The Shakers, and, We arenot hiding it!!

Let’s all welcome him aboard, and join him on his musical journey!!



Seeker of Truth. Nicknamed "Gentle Giant”
