I have never had the pleasure of seeing Zac Brown Band live. That is going to change this summer, when I head to Kingsport’s FunFest for ZZB’s show in July 2010. Last night, I watched “Pass the Jar,” a fantastic new DVD that will be released May 4. Pre-orders are being taken here, and your DVD will be shipped on or before May 4.
Best New Artist GRAMMY winners Zac Brown Band are all about their live show experience and their latest DVD/2-CD release ‘Pass The Jar – Zac Brown Band and Friends Live from the Fabulous Fox Theatre In Atlanta’ will bring that experience to an even bigger audience on May 4 (Southern Ground/Atlantic). Taped at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre, ‘Pass the Jar…’ is a live concert package that captures performances from Zac Brown Band’s sold-out October 2009 show benefiting Athens’s historic Georgia Theatre.
The ‘Pass the Jar…’ DVD will features 18 of the evening’s performances with guests including: Kid Rock, Little Big Town, Joey + Rory, Shawn Mullins, Angie Aparo and Aslyn, who joined Zac Brown Band onstage for songs from their platinum album ‘The Foundation,’ their favorite covers, and new unreleased material. Shot in HD and directed by Darren Doane (who also shot the band’s "Toes" and "Highway 20 Ride" videos), the DVD is essential viewing for Zac Brown Band fans.

I like turning off the DVD player feeling as if I am about to leave the live concert hall. This DVD will make you feel like that. I really enjoyed it, great vocals, fantastic musicians, complete with special guests and an audience that was obviously having a lot of fun.
That’s it for now. Talk to you guys later.
